All eyes on Trump for landmark address to CongressDonald Trump will have a chance to breathe new momentum into his month-old presidency in an address to Congress Tuesday night, but he will need to strike the right tone — far from his score-settling tweets at foes of all stripes.

Bergdahl’s defense team plans to make the request on Monday at the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals in Virginia, Attorney Eugene Fidell said in a telephone interview.
