President Trump on Friday pardoned a former Navy sailor whose conviction for unauthorized retention of national defense information became a rallying cry for conservatives who felt it showed Hillary Clinton was treated too leniently in the FBI's investigation of how she handled classified material. She said that he had acted as a mentor to younger sailors, and instructed new recruits. The first came a year ago when he issued a pardon for former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. "The sentencing judge found Mr".
"The President is appreciative of Mr. Saucier for his service to the country".
President Trump Has Issued Another Pardon
Saucier had said previously that he had only wanted service mementos. He's served a 12-month prison sentence for the crime.
Saucier was indicted in July 2015 on accusations of taking six cell phone photos of a submarine's classified engine room, a room in which he worked as a mechanic. The FBI ultimately recommended no charges for Clinton or her aides in that case, even though they found classified material had traversed her private server.

Saucier's attorney, Derrick Hogan, argued that the Federal Bureau of Investigation treated Clinton with leniency in comparison to his client, "Democratic Presidential Candidate and former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has come under scrutiny for engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier".
Trump has praised "Fox & Friends" for being named one of the "most influential" shows because he watches it, and has often spoken highly of its coverage of his presidency.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced on Friday that Saucier's pardon had been approved merely a few days after the Justice Department announced they were reconsidering Saucier's request.
Kathleen Saucier said her son first applied for a pardon in the fall of 2016 and was turned down in part because Justice Department rules say an applicant must wait five years before applying.
