Bergdahl's defense team argued that their client could not get a fair shake from the court because Trump, during a Rose Garden appearance on October 16, at first said he couldn't talk about the case and then added: "But I think people have heard my comments in the past".
Bergdahl pleaded guilty last Monday to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, after he walked off the post in Afghanistan in 2009.
Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance, the military judge overseeing Bergdahl's case, had ruled in February that Trump's statements as a candidate (and, therefore, a private citizen) didn't rise to the level of undue command influence.
He faces up to life in prison for his charges.
HM chief Sallahuddin's son arrested by NIA
The 2011 terror funding case seems to be finding its ground now after NIA nabbed four accused in 2011 and filed a charge sheet. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has Syed Shahid Yusuf in custody, the son of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin.
The judge said when he denied the motion to dismiss in February he believed the public would see Trump's earlier statements as campaign rhetoric. Trump said he couldn't comment on Bergdahl, but added: "I think people have heard my comments in the past".
While campaigning, Trump repeatedly called Bergdahl a "dirty, rotten traitor" who deserved to be executed by firing squad or thrown out of a plane without a parachute.
It's unclear if prosecutors and the defense reached some sort of agreement ahead of sentencing about Bergdahl's fate.
He said the military has an open-door policy for service members to voice concerns about chains of command, so Bergdahl had no reason to desert. He said that when they recite, the whole military is approaching for you, they are telling the truth. He called the prosecutor's argument about the latest statement "a strained interpretation".

He was traded for five Taliban officials freed from Guantanamo Bay. Now, the disgraced military officer awaits his sentencing.
"I don't have any doubt whatsoever that I can be fair and impartial in the sentencing in this matter", Nance said. Investigators said Bergdahl suffered from schizotypal personality disorder when he left his post.
The judge will hear testimonies from soldiers who were injured as they searched for Bergdahl after he went missing.
"Because if I am willing to risk leaving the wire at a defense point, in the middle of a war zone, that we have been attacked at, that we have been blown up at, on multiple occasions, if this guy is willing to risk doing that, and then shows up again at the FOB, [the general] is going to want to know why and he is going to want to listen to this guy", Bergdahl told now-Lt.
