Attorneys for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl said they may seek a deposition from Donald Trump or call him as a witness at a legal proceeding, saying they fear his comments could affect their client’s right to a fair trial.
Bergdahl’s attorney Army Lt. Col. Franklin Rosenblatt asked Trump in a letter dated on Saturday for an interview to discuss his comments about Bergdahl, who faces military charges after walking off a post in Afghanistan in 2009.
Defense attorney Eugene Fidell previously asked, publicly, that Trump cease making comments about Bergdahl, such as his comment in October that the soldier was a ‘traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed.’
Fidell has also previously said that Trump gave incorrect information about rescue efforts for Bergdahl during public speeches.
He said the Republican presidential candidate’s statements could affect Bergahl’s right to a fair trial.
