The Government Accountability Office claims Obama and the Defense department broke some laws.
This was suspected.
Now apparently confirmed.
But what difference at this point does it make ?
Feds: Obama Broke Law with Bergdahl Swap
President Obama violated a “clear and unambiguous” law when he released five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl,
the Government Accountability Office reported Thursday.
“[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because it did not notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of
the transfer,” the GAO report said. “In addition, because DOD used appropriated funds to carry out the transfer when no money was available for
that purpose, DOD violated the Antideficiency Act. The Antideficiency Act prohibits federal agencies from incurring obligations exceeding an amount
available in an appropriation.”
