As you know, military courts are not the same as our judiciary system of a Judge and jury of your peers, especially if you're being charged with
violating military law (the UCMJ).
Normally if something gets all the way to an actual court martial (instead of Non-Judicial, in the Navy we called that Captain's Mast), the evidence
against you is going to be pretty damming.
However, pressure from above can be brought to bear on a military court....as has been suggested in this thread.
My brain says that logically he should be formally charge (at a minimum) of violating articles 86 and 85 of the UCMJ (Unauthorized Absence and
Desertion), and that he will be found guilty quite easily of at least article 86. Other charges might be harder to prove.
BUT.....my gut says that this man will most likely never face a court martial (as has been suggested...."unfit" to stand one), or, he'll be found
"not guilty" by reasons classified by the panel (as ordered by the chain of command above).
There will not be any transparency on this. There wasn't any in the deal being made.
Not to mention that this administration has yet to live up to the promises made of being the "most transparent" one yet......
Someone wanted this to make the WH look good......only it blew up in their faces.
Should have found an actual "hero" to rescue.....and not someone that deserted their post. Would have been easier to sell to the public.
