Trump previously said he believed the one year sentence being served by Saucier was harsh.
In an interview with ‘Varney and Co.’ last year, the former sailor blasted the double standard surrounding his case relative to Hillary Clinton mishandling classified information.
On Saturday morning, Kristian Saucier spoke with Fox & Friends in an exclusive interview about the moment he found out he was pardoned.
The ex-Navy Sailor also unleashed on Crooked Hillary and Obama’s corrupt DOJ.
Saucier said a prosecutor and a couple of FBI agents destroyed his life for no reason.
“It was a clear attempt by the Department of Justice under President Obama to use me as a scapegoat to take the heat off of Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information,” Saucier said.
Saucier ended the interview by expressing his gratitude to President Trump followed through with his promise and setting him free.
Saturday morning, President Trump congratulated Saucier on his newly found freedom.
Trump tweeted: Congratulations to Kristian Saucier, a man who has served proudly in the Navy, on your newly found Freedom. Now you can go out and have the life you deserve!
