A military judge at Fort Bragg in North Carolina was set to hear the case Monday before it was rescheduled.
U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's sentencing hearing has been postponed.
A military judge at Fort Bragg in North Carolina was set to hear the case Monday. Some news outlets reported a lawyer's family emergency pushed it back until Wednesday.
But other outlets, including NBC, said the delay came after Bergdahl's attorneys filed a motion to dismiss the case, following what President Donald Trump publicly said about their client.
"He's a traitor, a no-good traitor who should have been executed," Trump said.
Trump told reporters at a news conference last week he couldn't say anything more about Bergdahl's case but added this:
"I think people have heard my comments in the past," Trump said.
The Taliban captured Bergdahl after he walked off base in Afghanistan in June 2009. He was freed in May 2014 when then-President Barack Obama negotiated his release in exchange for five Guantanamo Bay detainees.
Earlier this month, Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. The desertion charge carries a potential five-year sentence, while the misbehavior charge is punishable by life in prison.
