A meeting between Obama administration officials and members of the House on Monday did little to tamper Republican criticisms over why Congress was not informed ahead of the prisoner exchange that led to Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release. Republicans in the House said White House officials informed them that as many as many as 90 members of the administration knew of the deal before it happened, yet no members of Congress were informed. Democrats and Republicans alike have said the Bergdahl deal, which resulted in the release of five Taliban detainees, blindsided them.
