Trump pardons Navy sailor who took photos inside sub

Kristian Saucier, the Navy sailor pardoned by President TrumpDonald John TrumpAccuser says Trump should be afraid of the truth Woman behind pro-Trump Facebook page denies being influenced by Russians Shulkin says he has White House approval to root out "subversion" at VA MORE on Friday, had appeared on "Fox and Friends" earlier in the week to argue for his pardon. She said that he had acted as a mentor to younger sailors, and instructed new recruits. "The sentencing judge found Mr".

Saucier was sentenced in August 2016 to a year in prison, and his case soon attracted the attention of Trump, who compared it with the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. The President is grateful to Mr. Saucier's service to the country. Saucier, a resident of Arlington, Vermont, was subsequently arrested in May 2015.

Saucier had said previously that he had only wanted service mementos. He was brought up on felony charges of unlawful retention of national defense information and obstruction of justice, according to Politico. Trump said that Saucier's case showed that Clinton had been treated with undue leniency when Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey recommended that she should not face criminal charges for her handling of the information.

Saucier's attorney, Ronald Daigle Jr., said his client was "ecstatic". Saucier claimed his prosecution was driven by sensitivity about classified information amid the scandal involving Clinton's emails.

Kathleen Saucier, Saucier's mother, said in an interview Friday that she and other supporters had waged an aggressive public campaign for the pardon, and she thought that effort - coupled with a more sympathetic new administration - helped her son.

Saucier was sentenced in 2016.

President Trump used a similar argument to make his case for why Hillary Clinton needed to be sent to prison.
