In 2009, U.S Sailor Kristian Saucier’s life took a turn for the worse after he took nine photos of the inside of the USS Alexandria.
He was arrested and convicted of being in possession of “unauthorized retention of national defense information,” which is a felony in 2016.
But, President Donald Trump pardoned him and ended the nightmare that plagued him for so long.
President Donald Trump is keeping his promises to not only make America great again, but to right the many wrongs that occurred under the presidency of Barack Obama and his Administration. Among the mistakes was the arrest of U.S. Sailor Kristian Saucier, for taking photos of the inside of the USS Alexandria.
According to our source, Daily Vine, at the time of the arrest, Saucier was enjoying a stellar career in the Navy and was looking forward to serve for more years. Now he is free, and he is speaking out about the circumstances surrounding his prosecution and the double standard to which he was held to.
“The president has pardoned Kristian Saucier, a Navy submariner. Mr. Saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12-month sentence. He has been recognized by his fellow service-members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit. The president is appreciative of Mr. Saucier’s service to the country,” Sarah Sanders said at a press conference.
“That was the press secretary yesterday,” Fox News reporter Pete Hegseth said. “Well, former Navy machinist joins us now for an exclusive interview. Sir, thank you very much for joining. What it must have felt like today… to wake up as a free man. You were a felon yesterday. Today you’re free. How are you feeling?” he asked.
“Pretty good,” Saucier said. “We’re very grateful to the president for following through with his promise to help our family out. He is an amazing man, and this is just one of the many great things that he’s done in his term. You know, I got to speak with him briefly yesterday and what an amazing guy. Just to be able to take time out of his busy schedule to speak with me and to turn my family’s life around and give us our lives back.”
“This case could have been handled at a much lower level within the military, as it should have been because I was active duty at the time and I would have taken my punishment the same way — like a man. I made a mistake when I was a young kid, it was a misguided attempt to have some mementos, and it should have never reached the level like it did. And I believe President Trump saw that and he spoke about my case.”
“It was a clear attempt by the Department of Justice… under Obama to use me as a scapegoat to take the heat off Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information,” Saucier added.
