Skip to comments.Claire McCaskill: Bowe Bergdahl 'rush to judgment' is 'un-American'

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) on Wednesday evening lashed out at un-American rush to judgment over the military record of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, following an all-senators briefing on the prisoner swap that led to the soldiers release.
One of the last senators to leave the two-hour meeting with administration officials, McCaskill said she hopes that eventually all the facts surrounding Bergdahls service are declassified in fairness to the soldier and his family.
Whats unfortunate is that many people have spoken out about this episode without having all the facts, McCaskill said in an interview. Im not going to make a judgment. There are circumstances that are difficult for this soldier and his family
But theres a lot of facts the people dont have right now. And this rush to judgment is frankly un-American. Especially considering that this is somebody who signed up and said: Im willing to die for my country. And was held in captivity for five years.
She added: Im just anxious for all of the facts to get out there. I think a lot of them will be become public.

Didn’t Mckass praise Bergdip immediately? Shouldn’t she have known there were questions about his disposition?
The term Un-American just doesn’t sound right when she says it.
Or “how the hell did they find out the facts so quickly?”
we’ve seen half a dozen of people that were there who said he walked off voluntarily and should go to jail.
Google it, as the State Department says.
Yeah. And The Duke LAX students, and George Zimmerman.
And Sarah Palin and the crosshairs.
What’s the rush to judgment — the facts of his desertion have been known for 5 years.
She’s anxious for all the facts to come out. Please Claire, stop lying to us and to yourself. Democrats have never cared about truth and honesty.
The voters in MO really scraped the bottom of the barrel with this moron. And they keep re-electing her, which is shameful.
Stuff it, Claire.
Ah, shut up, you stupid witch. If not for an idiot candidate, you’d be a footnote, and you remain a footnote.
5 terrorist murderers for 1 alleged deserter are all the facts I need assclown!
WTF kind of swap deal is that, Senator?
5 years of evidence is NOT a “rush” Claire...
But didn’t Claire “rush” to call him a hero?
LOL...Howie Carr said last night the only people defending Bergdahl are “a couple of wacko’s at the Politico”.
HOWIE CARR SHOW: Col Hunt On the Price Of Bergdhal’s Walk On The Wild Side (6-3-14)
I would say the American who got droned to death by the Obama team, which Claire is a part of, would have a different opinion of a “rush to judgement”
THEM: A rush to judgement without the facts is unAmerican.
US: So when will we get the facts?
THEM: Sorry, we can’t release those facts to you.
The fact is the Obama people said they didn’t have time to notify Congress 30 days in advance of the swap because Bergdahl’s health was so poor that it was thought he wouldn’t survive.
Then the Taliban released a video of his release to special forces. And there he was as healthy as could be, standing straight up and walking normally. There was no health condition that couldn’t wait 30 days.
The fact is the administration and their idiot face in Susan Rice lied through their teeth.
Megan Kelly of Fox News just said she will have six of Bergdahl’s platoon-mates on Tomorrow night.
Is that “un-American”? /sarc
Meanwhile, they sit on their hands while real Veterans die waiting to get into VA hospitals.
What is Un-American is a celebrating a traitor who gave the enemy information that lead to the enemy gain a tactical uphand.
Claire the fat one has posited so much stupid S*it verbally this week that I think we need to call the Septic cleaners quickly!
Are we REally being ruled by these Mental Midgets?
The D after her name stands for “dips#it”
Responding to government propaganda, using the available facts, when the propaganda machine keeps spouting BS, is now "rushing to judgment?"
Shove it Claire.
Democrats are unamerican so...shut up Clair.
I'll get you a fair trial and a fine hanging.
I want him shot by firing squad on TV!!
What about these scumbags the marxist in chief released?
These 5 were named by the Taliban as the ones they wanted out of GB.
This is like releasing Hess, Goering, Borrman, Streicher and Jodl instead of trying them at Nuremberg.
How in the Hell did this Popeye Seahag get re-elected?
Sure she is.
Hope this idiot enjoys it's remaining days in DC.
Five years is hardly a rush.
Spoken like a true Damocrat. One stupid statement by Akin and the media lackies and dems are so aggrieved. I’m sure McCaskill has never made a stupid statement — oh wait, she just did. But then there is silence.
If I want to rush to judgement, Ill rush to judgement.
Un American would be releasing the all star terrorist team from Gitmo to kill more Americans.
Sorry darling we ain't buying it.
McCaskill: We can’t tell you the true truth ‘cause it’s a secret but trust us.
I would not call a review of his action a rush to judgement the evidence is plain! Someone straighten this idiot lady what Americanism really is. It’s not getting fellow Service men killed looking for a fool! This traitor needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the UCMJ!
sickening isn't it ?
Neither do the words "served honorably" and "with distinction" when spoken by Rice.
You're joking right Claire? So the White House declares him a HERO in the media and we are just supposed to live with that? His platoon was there when he deserted - inquiring minds want to know did Claire meet with members of his platoon?
She was one of the last to leave the meeting. That means she stuck around so she could be told what to say.
She says he signed up to die for his country. Well, he also “un-signed” when he took off his uniform and walked away.
Same idiots who believed Tim McGirk from jump street are now asking for restraint ? ...........
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) ?
Come on Missouri, you can do better than garbage like this
The poor health line was revealed to be a lie when White Hut insiders said that it was better to get the blowback over this now rather than in 6 months when more shenanigans are going to come into play as we withdraw from Afghanistan.
The annual Bergdahl party was coming up, it quickly shifted from “we remember” to “Celebrate good times, come on!” until it was shut down.
Obama and the father (who was flown into DC) had to know it was coming up.
Another Obama “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” moment.

While they were prepared for some political blowback, Obama administration officials said they felt the outcry would have been fiercer if in six months’ time, as the United States wraps up its mission in Afghanistan, it emerged that Obama had missed an opportunity to secure Bergdahl’s freedom.
Wasn’t about Bergdahl’s deteriorating health at all.
