The family and lawyers supporting former Navy sailor Kristian Saucier were hoping President Trump would be receptive to the “Hillary Clinton defense.”
Saucier was convicted and imprisoned for keeping never-distributed personal photos of classified sections of an attack submarine on his cellphone. He argued that Mrs. Clinton, while secretary of state, did much worse. She mishandled pages of secret material on her personal computer system and got off scot-free.
“I think it’s very unfair in light of what’s happened with other people,” the president told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in January.
Mr. Trump referred to the Saucier case on the campaign trail as a way of highlighting Mrs. Clinton’s scolding reprieve by FBI Director James B. Comey.
With high hopes, Jeffrey Addicott, Saucier’s pro-bono attorney at the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, filed a clemency request with the Department of Justice’s office of the pardon attorney.
