Lawmakers are planning hearings to investigate whether President Obama broke the law by not notifying them before making a deal to secure Berghdahl’s release.
There is new video from the Taliban. They say it’s American P.O.W. Bowe Bergdahl being released in exchange for five of their top commanders.
One top Democrat insists President Obama broke the law by not notifying them before the exchange. “There certainly was time to pick up the phone and call,” said Senator Dianne Feinstein, (D) California.
Aides say when lawmakers last discussed a possible deal, Democrats and Republicans thought it was risky.
That was two years ago. “If that’s keeping us in the loop, then you know, this administration is more arrogant than I thought they were,” said Senator Saxby Chambliss, (R) Georgia.
A top White House official has since called key lawmakers to apologize.
