In March, President Donald Trump pardoned former U.S. Navy sailor Kristian Saucier, who served a one-year prison stint for taking six pictures of “classified areas inside a nuclear submarine,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

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.
After his pardon, 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.
Kristian Saucier is suing Barack Obama and Jim Comey for jailing him but allowing Crooked Hillary to walk.
The Daily Mail reported:
A former U.S. Navy seaman who spent a year in federal prison for photographing a classified area of a nuclear submarine plans to sue former President Barack Obama and fired FBI director James Comey for selectively prosecuting him.
Donald Trump issued a presidential pardon this year to Kristian Saucier, whose lawyer Ronald Daigle told Fox News on Monday that the pending lawsuit will also name the Justice Department as a defendant.
Daigle says former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was given a free pass by avoiding prosecution for mishandling classified information on her infamous private email server.
Saucier, 31, believes Comey and Obama should be held responsible for treating him unequally.
‘They interpreted the law in my case to say it was criminal,’ he told Fox, ‘but they didn’t prosecute Hillary Clinton. Hillary is still walking free.’
