Mike Rogers: The White House hasn't briefed Congress on a potential Bergdahl swap since 2011

“I don’t know what he means by consulted Congress for some time,” Rogers said in response Obama’s comments. “In 2011, they did come up and present a plan that included a prisoner transfer that was, in a bipartisan way, pushed back. We hadn’t heard anything since on any details of any prisoner exchange.”

He said that administration officials met with the relevant national security committees in 2011 to discuss the potential freeing of some U.S. prisoners as an act of “goodwill,” which the lawmakers resoundingly rejected. He said that the only thing Congress had seen since 2011 concerning Bergdahl was a proof of life video released in December 2013.
