Respected LIBERAL Law Professor: Obama Regime ‘on Trial for Bergdahl’

Jonathan Turley has been one of the very few liberals to call out Obama on his numerous unconstitutional royal edicts, even though he admittedly tends to agree with many of his policies.

Now, the respected liberal George Washington University Law School professor is calling out the Obama Regime’s actions in Bowe Bergdahl terrorist swap.

In an op-ed in the USA Today  on Wednesday, Professor Turley called Obama’s order to release the five notorious Taliban terrorists, who he referred to as “dangerous blood-soaked characters,” a “violation of federal law.”

Turley articulates that the supposed capture of Bergdahl was a fraud from the beginning.

“From the earliest accounts, the evidence against Bergdahl seemed to refute suggestions that he was a captive,” Turley wrote. “Bergdahl stated that he had lagged behind a patrol and was captured, but there was no evidence of such a capture.”

Furthermore, Turley points out that Bergdahl has been accused of educating the enemy terrorists in bomb-making skills, including how to turn a cell phone into a remote control device for a roadside bomb.

In addition to reminding readers that several soldiers gave their lives trying to find Sgt. Bergdahl, perhaps the most damning charge from the liberal professor is that Obama’s unilateral ordering of the release of the five leading terrorists known as the “Taliban Dream Team,” without informing Congress until after the fact, is illegal.

“…the decision of the White House to avoid informing Congress, as required under federal law, clearly reflected a discomfort of the administration over the merits of such a trade with terrorists,” Turley penned.

Just another case of Obama unconstitutionally “going it alone,” even when the Constitution and rule of law says otherwise. The Obama Regime has a lot of explaining to do, justifying the release of Bergdahl, a man several of his former platoon members have referred to as a “traitor,” in exchange for returning five Islamic terrorist leaders back to the battle field to fight against Americans.

It’s predicted by this writer that Turley will soon be writing similar opinions about Obama’s “go it alone” deal with Iran, a deal he also knows would not be approved by Congress, perhaps even with many members of his own party.
