    Bowe Bergdahl expected to plead guilty to deserting his post: AP

    Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty soon to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy rather than face trial for leaving his Afghanistan post.

    That's according to two individuals with knowledge of the case.

    They tell The Associated Press that Bergdahl will submit the plea later this month and sentencing will start Oct. 23. The individuals weren't authorized to discuss the case and demanded anonymity.

    The 31-year-old Bergdahl could face up to five years in prison on the desertion charge and a life sentence for misbehavior.

    Bergdahl left his Afghanistan post in 2009 and was held captive by the Taliban for about five years. He was released in 2014 in a prisoner swap for five Taliban detainees, sparking an emotional debate about negotiating with hostage takers.

    "There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, in part, because they are so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved. There is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which that will happen this time. And so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whinin’ and go try to make his case to get votes." -Barack Obama, October 18, 2016

    I would think that 5 years in prison here would be a cake walk compared to 5 years in prison over there. If you believe that he was actually in prison over there.
