(CNN) – The U.S. Army is denying reports of a decision to charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion.

He's the soldier who disappeared from a base in Afghanistan before he was captured by the Taliban.

Bergdahl returned safely to the U.S. this past summer after he was traded for five Taliban prisoners in a controversial swap.

In an interview that aired Monday night on Fox News, a former military officer said he's been told by sources that Bergdahl's lawyer has been provided a list of the charges.

The Army released a statement to CNN saying the report was untrue.
