Trump congratulates former sailor after pardon: Go ‘have the life you deserve!

President Trump on Saturday congratulated a former Navy sailor he pardoned a day earlier, telling him to “go out and have the life you deserve.””Congratulations to Kristian Saucier, a man who has served proudly in the Navy, on your newly found Freedom,” Trump tweeted. “Now you can go out and have the life you deserve!”

Trump issued a pardon on Friday for Saucier, who had recently been released from prison. He served 12 months for mishandling classified information by taking pictures onboard a nuclear submarine.

When Saucier was on trial in 2016, his lawyers invoked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was also accused of mishandling classified information. Trump has frequently compared the two cases as evidence of inequality within the Department of Justice.

The FBI declined to charge Clinton in 2016 after an investigation into her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of State.

Then-FBI Director James Comey said at the time that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information, but that her actions did not rise to the level of criminal conduct.
