Congressman Ryan Zinke (R-MT) will be the lead guest on Bill O’Reilly’s O’Reilly Factor tonight discussing the Bowe Bergdahl situation and global terrorism, according to his spokesperson Heather Swift.

Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-Mont.), a former Navy SEAL Team Six commander, has launched a political action committee in the hopes of getting more GOP veterans elected to Congress.


“It wasn’t too long ago, back in the 1970’s, that military veterans made up more than three-fourths of the membership of Congress,” Zinke states on SEAL PAC’s website. “Sadly, the number of veterans in Congress has declined to less than 20 percent in both chambers.”

We need to protect our allies.”

In case you missed it, here’s what Zinke had to say in response to the latest land grab threatened by President Obama:
