Kristian Saucier, a former Navy sailor, who served a year in federal prison for taking photographs on the submarine he worked before receiving a pardon from Donald Trump is planning to sue President Barack Obama and ex-FBI Director James Comey.
Saucier alleges that he was subject to unequal protection as the very officials who dolled out his punishment chose to tread lightly with Hillary Clinton regarding her misuse of classified information.
Fox News reports:
“They interpreted the law in my case to say it was criminal,” Saucier told Fox News, referring to prosecuting authorities in his case, “but they didn’t prosecute Hillary Clinton. Hillary is still walking free. Two guys on my ship did the same thing and weren’t treated as criminals. We want them to correct the wrong.”
Daigle said that a notice about the pending lawsuit was sent to the Department of Justice and others included in it in December. There is usually a six-month period that must lapse before the lawsuit actually is filed.
“We’ll highlight the differences in the way Hillary Clinton was prosecuted and how my client was prosecuted,” Daigle said. “We’re seeking to cast a light on this to show that there’s a two-tier justice system and we want it to be corrected.”
While campaigning, and after taking office, Trump frequently voiced support for Saucier, who in March became the second person he pardoned.
Saucier says Trump’s pardon has empowered him to begin rebuilding his life with his wife and infant daughter.
