Congressman Thornberry participates in hearing over Bergdahl release

Posted: Updated:
The investigation into U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl's controversial release was underway Wednesday morning, and Amarillo's own congressman participated in the hearing.

Representative Mac Thornberry, who serves on the Armed Services committee, questioned Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel about the administration's involvement in the release, and concerns about congressional oversight and national security.

Thornberry spoke with NewsChannel 10 after hearing. He expressed that he was not satisfied with the answers provided in the hearing, and hopes more will come of the unanswered questions that still remain.
