Boehner lamented that the administration did not consult Congress before making the final decision to negotiate for Bergdahl's release, despite earlier briefings on the situation.

"There was every expectation that the administration would re-engage with Congress, as it did before, and the only reason it did not is because the administration knew it faced serious and sober bipartisan concern and opposition," he said in the statement.
