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”.
