Bowe Bergdahl's lawyer calls interview with army investigator "informal, but businesslike"

On Wednesday, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl met with the Army general leading the investigation into the sergeant's disappearance five years ago.

Bergdahl was held captive by the Taliban for nearly five years before being released into U.S. custody in May.

Bergdahl's attorney Eugene Fidell was at the meeting. He spoke with CNN's Nick Valencia, and described the atmosphere as both informal and businesslike.

Valencia notes Bergdahl's lawyer would not comment on any potential communication between the Army soldier and his parents, a relationship that has long been under scrutiny.

For Burnett's full conversation with Valencia, including further insight into Bergdahl's interview with the army investigator, watch the above video.
