Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), initially a strong critic of the prisoner swap that involved freeing five Guantanamo Bay detainees, on Tuesday said that it’s time to stop harping on Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s release.
“I think we need to put an end to all of this now. I think enough is enough. I think the Senate has had a hearing and the House has had a hearing,” she told reporters after the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the prisoner swap, according to The Hill. “Everybody has heard what they need to hear.”
After the White House announced the release of Bergdahl, Feinstein charged that the administration broke the law by failing to consult Congress before agreeing to free Guantanamo detainees.
“I strongly believe that we should have been consulted, that the law should have been followed. And I very much regret that that was not the case,” she told reporters last week.
