lol as usual you miss the point entirely. BTW Huffington Post reads like foxnews.com. For your sake, I hope they are not your only outlet, although it would explain a lot.
1st of all, let's consider context. No one knew that Bergdahl willingly deserted and actively sought out the Taliban, except for the administration, as the entire ordeal was covered up (big surprise). Had everyone been aware of that stingy little fact and we might not even be having this conversation today.
Secondly, within that article I did not find a single instance of a Republican urging the President to break the law.
"But prior to Bergdahl's release, Republican lawmakers were some of the sergeant's biggest advocates, and repeatedly pressed the administration to do something -- in fact, everything within its power -- to get him returned to the United States."
Everything WITHIN his power. Superseding Congress is not within his power.
Look, everyone's happy an American has been released from the Taliban (regardless of his status as a traitor). That is not the issue.
Personally, I hope he's court martialed.
