The former Navy sailor pardoned by President Donald Trump after serving a year in federal prison for taking photos of classified sections of his submarine filed a lawsuit on Monday against Obama administration officials. The ex-sailor is alleging that he was subject to unequal protection of the law and cites Comey and Obama’s willingness to not prosecute Hillary Clinton.
Barack Obama and former FBI director James Comey let Hillary off the hook before the election, while Kristian Saucier served hard time. Saucier says that that action was “unfair” and “unequal” compared to the corruption and criminal activity of Hillary Clinton. Saucier told Fox News he was scapegoated by Obama officials who found themselves under fire for not aggressively responding to Clinton’s handling of classified information through her private email servers.
According to Fox News, Saucier’s federal lawsuit alleges that the United States government was “overzealous” in prosecuting him for “mishandling classified information” while going easy on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for more serious violations of the same law. Saucier’s lawsuit names as defendants former President Barack Obama, former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who led the inquiry into Clinton’s email account.
“I could have just taken the pardon by President Trump and gone on with my life,” Saucier said to Fox News, adding that he feels an obligation to get to the truth of what he sees as a double standard that let Clinton get off scot-free. “The U.S. Constitution clearly states that all citizens are born with inalienable rights to be free from persecution by the government,” Saucier said. “My conviction and subsequent sentence for a minor military infraction compared to the treatment of politically connected individuals is a glaring example of a violation of the rights of all Americans to have equal protection under the law.”
The former Navy sailor is acting as his own attorney after the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court New York barred his lawyer, Ronald Daigle, from practicing for one year. The court’s move came just as Daigle was helping Saucier prepare to file the lawsuit, prompting the navy sailor to accuse New York officials of trying to hinder his court fight against Obama, Comey, and others. –Fox News
Saucier said that he realizes he had erred in taking the photos of the submarine, which he said he wanted to show only to his family so that they could see where he worked. He has also lashed out at Obama officials, saying that his prosecution was politically motivated, prompted by sensitivity about classified information amid the scandal involving Clinton’s emails.
Good for him. I am waiting. LOCK HER UP!!!
“BURN THE WITCH” HAS A MUCH BETTER SOUND AND MEANING !
I like that! and do it publicly. Several other traitors to the USA need to be tied to stakes in that same fire burning to death as they scream. Their sounds of agony would be pleasing.
the guy is gonna die of a heart attack/car accident or mugging real soon, but we all love him for what he’s doing.
Good for him, I am glad something worked out.
Off the subject did you see the Navy Seal harassment thing
Q. Do you think the military should issue Sex Robots ????
The only danger I see is someone hacking in and turning a Sex Robot into a Terminator boy that would sure leave the military
( LIMP )………………
I think mankind is on the way out ?
Get in line. Very soon it will be We The People prosecuting that witch.
I love this guy.
BUT, he will get a bullet, in the back of his head, behind his ear….which is the signature assassination sign of the ELITE.
It is how they kill those who won’t do their bidding………. Lincoln, Kennedy and all the Clinton killings……………….

WHO THE HELL IS IN CHARGE ONLY THE SHADOW KNOWS !
Trump grants pardons to Oregon ranchers Dwight and Steve Hammonds:
Pardoned he may be, by Trump, but I don’t have much love for this guy, whatever he winds up doing. He very well knew the security regulations and he violated them anyway. He is free and able to move about the country, but he played a part in injuring the country he allegedly served. What will this case and pardoning have on current and future sailors who are warned about the security regulations?
Get a grip man! He made a very minor mistake. I’m all for him and his lawsuit. Put Crooked Hillary in prison! She and her husband are as crooked as the day is long. EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAW!
So disappointed Trump failed to “lock her up”
good luck to him….I hope he wins his lawsuit
Hahahahahahahahahaha. Wait, let me catch my breath. Ok.
Hahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahaha. Good luck with the lawsuit, convict.
Even if true, prosecutorial discretion is a well-established principle. Want to bet he sets up a gofundme to get money “to help his case?” Just another attention and money whore.
You know your case is weak when the only person you can get to represent you is a crook:
Not a lawyer, but I think this will get thrown out of court pretty quickly.
What is his standing?
I think it is irrelevant what happened to him in a legal sense.
And certainly, not least of all, suing a Federal Official about the conduct of their job, especially on actions that they DID NOT take is likely not even questionable.
Even actions that they did take where their “professional” judgment is involved is likely not going to fly.
Whatever they did or didn’t do, if the action/inaction was not a clear violation of some Federal Statute I don’t see much future in the case.
Similarly, if the President exercises a Constitutional power (like hiring and firing non-Civil Service employees of the Executive Branch) it matters ZERO about his motive and he cannot be guilty of Obstruction of Justice.
I reckoned that was true before the Liberal Alan Dershowitz recently allowed that was the case (IHO)
There are many people being locked up while others as guilty or even more guilty are not. A prime example is the young white man who drove wildly in Charlottesville in order to escape the attack he was under.
Heather Hyer died of a heart attack. She was not struck by the vehicle. The excitement of the events taking place probably caused her very sick heart to fail her. So then why is only one person being held responsible? Obviously, the reason is purely political. It isn’t fair.
Waste of sailors time,waste of courts time. Government will move for summary judgment and it will be granted. Move on,sailor.
Well, good luck with that; this “house a cards” would implode like John Goodman’s stomach should anyone, or any entity take the real criminals to task!
