The court martial of an accused army deserter, who was captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan, has just been delayed until next year. And with that delay, comes more possible complications.

FOX's Eben Brown has more:

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the subject of a highly criticized prisoner-swap between the U.S. and the Taliban, will not be court-martialed on charges of desertion and misbehaving before the enemy until 2017.

The defense claims they've had trouble accessing classified documents and need more time to prepare. But the delay means a new commander in chief will be in-office. Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is already on record believing Bergdahl to have committed treason.

Bergdahl's lawyers say this could prevent the soldier from getting a fair trial.
