 Donna Brazile: Soldiers Talking about Bergdahl’s Desertion a ‘PR Campaign by Republicans’
By Patrick Brennan
June 8, 2014 9:57 AM




Democratic strategist and former Clinton-campaign manager Donna Brazile said this morning that veterans accusing recently returned Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl of desertion are part of a “PR campaign by Republicans.”

After fellow panelist Ana Navarro noted that members of Bergdahl’s unit had consistently expressed concerns about the circumstances of his capture, Brazile said it was an effort to “muddy the waters” surrounding the prisoner deal.

Quickly criticized for the comment by her fellow panelists on CNN, she said that she’d never impugn the testimony of a veteran, but stood by her comments.

“That’s all they do . . . all they do is focus their vitriol, their rage, against this president,” Brazile said. “If the president this morning had scrambled eggs and bacon, they’d say that’s an unhealthy breakfast. If the president had cereal and fruit, they’d say that’s an unhealthy breakfast.”

In the early days after Bergdahl was released, a former Bush administration official, Richard Grenell, reportedly was involved to some extent in helping soldiers who’d served with the sergeant connect with the media.
