Kristian Saucier, the former U.S. Navy sailor who served one year in prison for taking photos of classified areas inside a nuclear submarine was just pardoned.
In a nutshell, Saucier only took a classified picture but the former Secretary of State deleted over 33k emails and she never saw the inside of a cell. How fair is that?
Now it’s up to the Navy to better inform their personnel of these limitations! This young man didn’t deserve to have his life ruined because of lack of information on Navy regulations.
To be honest, Saucier should have never been convicted! Trump needs put Chelsea Manning back behind bars and send Hillary Clinton to go prison for all emails deleted I mentioned earlier.

Trump had denounced the government’s handling of Saucier’s case, calling it a political move and saying it contrasted with the velvet-gloved response to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s mismanagement of classified information through a private server.
“The president has pardoned Kristian Saucier, a Navy submariner,” Sanders said in a press briefing Friday afternoon. “Mr. Saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12-months sentence. He has been recognized by his fellow service members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit.”
“While serving, he regularly mentored younger sailors and served as an instructor for new recruits. The sentencing judge found that Mr. Saucier’s offense stands in contrast to his commendable military service. The president is appreciative of Mr. Saucier’s service to the country.”
Saucier was in disbelief when he learned Friday that Trump had granted him a pardon, his wife, Sadie, told Fox News.
I’ll never forget Barack Obama praised the deserter Bo Bergdahl and even brought his parents to the White House while this young man sat in prison. If you are wondering if Trump did the right thing, I want you to know, he absolutely did.
SOUND OFF in the comment section how you feel about this pardon and if you think Trump made the correct choice.
