Sailor Jailed for Taking Classified Photos: DOJ Could Have Charged Hillary

A former Navy sailor who spent a year in jail for taking photos of a classified part of a submarine said Friday Hillary Clinton could have been charged with the same crime.

Kristian Saucier spoke with Newsmax TV's JD Hayworth about his case. He was recently released from prison and is now serving three years probation.

"I made a mistake as a young man and I paid the price," Saucier said. "I spent a year, almost a year in prison, I was away from my wife and daughter, who just turned 2, and you know we're losing everything. We lost our car, it got repossessed, our house is in foreclosure right now. So it's an uphill battle, but you know, we're positive for the future."

Saucier noted that Clinton's email case never led to a prosecution, even though prosecutors could have charged her with the same crime he did time for.

"The thing that people should be concerned about is that it's not a prerequisite for the charge that they charged me with, unlawful retention of national defense information, which by the way is exactly what Hillary Clinton did by transmitting emails into an unsecure bathroom server," Saucier said.

"It's exactly the same thing and then deleting them is obstruction of justice. But they said she didn't have intent to cause national harm. Never an issue with my case."

Saucier then argued that the Department of Justice targeted him for taking photos of a classified area of the USS Alexandria, on which he served for several years during an 11-year Naval career, so he could remember it.

"They went after my family and me with the full force of the Justice Department and just came at us," he said. "They bankrupted us with legal fees and I never even went to trial. That was just getting to the point where I could plead guilty and accept responsibility for what I did. And that was their goal and this is what they do to average, hard-working, patriotic Americans like myself and my family."
