Graham On Bergdahl Sentence

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement.

“While I have tremendous respect for the military justice system I was a part of for over thirty years, I’m incredibly disappointed in the sentence handed down by the court in the Bergdahl case. 

“Given the nature of the crime and the sacrifices made by others on Bergdahl’s behalf, this sentence in my view falls short of the gravity of the offense.  An independent judiciary is the heart and soul of the rule of law but no one is beyond criticism.”
