Trump pardons Kristian Saucier, former sailor jailed for submarine pictures



By: Steven Nelson
Mar 9, 2018

President Trump issued the second pardon of his presidency Friday to former Navy sailor Kristian Saucier, who learned the news while driving a garbage truck, the only job he could find with a felony conviction.

Saucier was sentenced to a year in prison during the 2016 campaign for taking pictures inside a nuclear submarine. Trump invoked his case repeatedly on the campaign trail, saying he was “ruined” for doing “nothing” compared to Hillary Clinton.

Still, Trump allowed Saucier to serve his full prison sentence. He was released in September and returned to the Vermont home he shares with his wife Sadie and their two-year-old daughter.

Saucier, now 31, was 22 years old when he took the cellphone photos in 2009. He pleaded guilty to one count of unauthorized retention of national defense information and his attorneys unsuccessfully requested the "Clinton deal," meaning little if any punishment.

Saucier told the Washington Examiner earlier this year that a felony conviction made it hard to find work. He found employment as a garbage man to support his family. While in prison, the family's cars were repossessed and his home is in foreclosure.

We’re struggling,” Saucier said in January, describing frequent calls from credit card debt collectors and an electricity bill payment plan. “No one will hire me because I’m a felon ... All the skills I worked so hard for in the military are useless.”

Before the pardon, Saucier had several months left of wearing an ankle monitor.

"When Kris gets home from work, when he gets to the door, I'm going to be a little emotional," Sadie Saucier told the Washington Examiner. "I can't believe it happened, I don't think it's set in yet."

Sadie Saucier said she notified her husband of the pardon via text message as he drove his garbage truck through a mountainous area with poor reception.

It sounds like professional courtesy.

Saucier had secret security clearance and took photos inside restricted areas of a US military nuclear sub, including shots of the reactor and power train, controls, etc.

Mistake #1.

Then he threw away the camera with the photos still intact. It was found in a local dump, and investigators found the illicit photos and traced them to Saucier.

Mistake #2.

After the FBI interviewed Saucier, he destroyed more evidence, including a laptop and a cell phone.

Mistake #3.

In summation, Saucier was S.T.U.P.I.D.

Which must be why Trump pardoned him:

Professional Courtesy

So you are an equal opportunity supporter of corruption and illegality. Though, I assume you are making some stupid joke or point.
