A lawyer representing Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has sent Donald Trump a request to meet with him to talk about the GOP front-runner’s comments about his client, NBC News reported.
Lt. Col. Franklin Rosenblatt sent a letter to Trump Saturday asking for time to determine whether he needs to be subpoenaed before a pending court-martial hearing.
Bergdahl’s defense lashed out at Trump for comments he made at a rally last October, in which he called Bergdahl a "traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed." Trump did not appear to respond immediately to the interview request.
Bergdahl walked away from his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was captured by the Taliban and held for five years before being released in a prisoner swap.
