View Full Version : Trump pardons sailor

President Trump issued the second pardon of his presidency Friday to former Navy sailor Kristian Saucier, who learned the news while driving a garbage truck, the only job he could find with a felony conviction.
Saucier was sentenced to a year in prison during the 2016 campaign for taking pictures inside a nuclear submarine. Trump invoked his case repeatedly on the campaign trail, saying he was “ruined” for doing “nothing” compared to Hillary Clinton.
Still, Trump allowed Saucier to serve his full prison sentence. He was released (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/sailor-in-case-trump-compared-to-hillary-clintons-released-from-prison/article/2633623) in September and returned to the Vermont home he shares with his wife Sadie and their two-year-old daughter.
Saucier, now 31, was 22 years old when he took the cellphone photos in 2009. He pleaded guilty to one count of unauthorized retention of national defense information and his attorneys unsuccessfully requested the "Clinton deal," meaning little if any punishment.
The six photos found on a cellphone Saucier discarded were deemed “confidential,” the lowest level of classification, even though some depicted the vessel’s nuclear reactor. Clinton, by contrast, sent and received more highly classified information on a private email server. In pleading guilty, Saucier admitted to destroying evidence after being questioned.
Saucier told the Washington Examiner earlier this year that a felony conviction made it hard to find work. He works as a garbage man (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/sailor-cited-by-trump-as-evidence-of-hillary-clinton-double-standard-now-works-as-garbage-man/article/2644729) to support his family. While in prison, the family's cars were repossessed and his home is in foreclosure.
“We’re struggling,” Saucier said in January, describing (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/sailor-cited-by-trump-as-evidence-of-hillary-clinton-double-standard-now-works-as-garbage-man/article/2644729) frequent calls from credit card debt collectors and an electricity bill payment plan. “No one will hire me because I’m a felon ... All the skills I worked so hard for in the military are useless.”
Before the pardon, Saucier had several months left of wearing an ankle monitor.
