President Trump Has Issued Another Pardon

Trump Pardons Former Navy Sailor In Case He Compared To Clinton's Emails

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. He was released but was still under house arrest until Trump issued the pardon.

"[Saucier] He has been recognized by his fellow service members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit".

Kristian Saucier, 31, of Vermont is the second person to be pardoned in the Trump administration; past year, the president controversially pardoned former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of criminal contempt of court for ignoring a judge's order to stop detaining people because he merely suspected them of being undocumented immigrants.

North Carolina holds off Duke to advance to ACC title game
The Cavaliers have been that this season, going 17-1 in the ACC and sweeping their three games in the conference tournament. It's a one-and-done format that often isn't fair and has proven to not be the best evaluator of how good or bad a coach is.

Saucier's attorney, Ronald Daigle Jr., said his client was "ecstatic".

"It was a clear attempt by the Department of Justice under President Obama to use me as a scapegoat to take the heat off of Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information", he added. "Saucier's offense stands in contrast to his commendable military service", she said. Saucier claimed his prosecution was driven by sensitivity about classified information amid the scandal involving Clinton's emails.

In July 2015, Saucier was charged with taking photos of classified spaces, instruments, and equipment inside the USS Alexandria on at least three occasions in 2009. He denied sharing the photos with any unauthorized recipient. Folks do you know what it tells you?

After Trump won election, Daigle discussed the case at Trump Tower with Michael Flynn, the president's former national security adviser, who encouraged a formal pardon request. Trump said in New Hampshire just four days before he was elected.
