Veteran Who Was Prosecuted Cites Hillary As Reason For Sentence Reduction

Hillary Clinton’s criminal case, or lack-thereof, is inspiring new court filings…

According to The Hill:

“A Navy sailor who has pleaded guilty to espionage charges for photographing classified areas of a nuclear submarine is citing Hillary Clinton ’s email setup in an effort to avoid jail time.

Lawyers for 29-year-old Kristian Saucier told a federal court in Connecticut on Friday that the Justice Department’s decision not to press charges against Clinton, despite the existence of classified material on more than 100 messages on her server, was one of several cases that should compel a reduced sentence.

“Most recently, Democratic Presidential Candidate and former Secretary of State Hilary [sic] Clinton … has come under scrutiny for engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier,” his legal team claimed.
The FBI has criticized Clinton’s private setup, attorney Derrick Hogan noted, “however, the FBI recently recommended Mrs. Clinton not be brought up on any charges as she lacked ‘intent.’”

Saucier pleaded guilty to possessing just six sensitive photographs, Hogan added, “far less than Clinton’s 110 emails.”

“Further, Mr. Saucier pled guilty to [a legal prohibition] which does not require intent. “Wherefore, it will be unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid.”
