Trump pardons submariner who took photos of classified sub & used ‘Clinton emails’ defense, 03/10/2018
US president Donald Trump has pardoned a Navy sailor who was sentenced to prison for taking and “mishandling” photos of a classified military vessel. The submariner used Hillary Clinton’s email scandal in his court defense.
Former Machinist’s Mate 1st Class Kristian Saucier took six photos of the USS Alexandria’s engine room with his cellphone at the Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, Connecticut. The vehicle’s propulsion system was deemed “confidential” by authorities.
Trump pardoned the Arlington, VT native on Friday. He had often referenced Saucier’s case during his electoral campaign, comparing it with Hillary Clinton’s illicit use of private email servers and classified information.
Saucier allegedly destroyed evidence, including his laptop computer, a camera and a memory card, after an interview with the FBI in 2012, so the FBI and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) were never able to determine if the photos had been distributed to unauthorized people, according to federal prosecutors.
