The defense argues that the chain of events surrounding Bergdahl's prosecution shows "impermissible meddling" by McCain and says either the charges should be thrown out or Bergdahl should face no punishment if convicted.In December, Gen. Robert B. Abrams sent Bergdahl's case to a general court-martial, rejecting the hearing officer's recommendation.The judge overseeing Bergdahl's case decided Monday that Abrams must testify this week after hearing arguments on a separate motion.The judge, Army Col. Jeffery Nance, said he wants to question Abrams about approximately 100 letters Abrams put in a "burn bag" to be incinerated. The destruction of the letters is one of several reasons the defense says Abrams should be disqualified from the case.
