Kirsters Baish| President Donald Trump pardoned former Navy sailor Kristian Saucier who lost his career and went to prison after taking photos aboard a nuclear power submarine to show his family. Saucier was vocally grateful to President Trump for the pardon, but went on to make some serious allegations against former President Barack Obama.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders explained that Trump pardoned the former sailor because of his otherwise commendable record.
Hegseth questioned Saucier about how he felt after he found out about being pardoned. It was reported that he answered, “Pretty good. 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.”
