The mother of a Navy sailor set to serve one year in prison for mishandling classified information is speaking out against Democrats Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.
Kathleen Saucier, mother of Kristian Saucier, took umbrage with Kaine’s debate claim that it was “absolutely false” that anyone else that “handled classified information the way Hillary Clinton did (would) be court martialed.”
Not so, Kathleen said, citing her son’s case as evidence and pointing out the obvious double standard.
Via Fox News Insider:
“I feel strongly that [Pence] was trying to be silenced by both Senator Kaine and the moderator that basically asked them to go on to something else,” she said.
After his sentence, Saucier will serve six months of home confinement with monitoring followed by three years of federal probation.
Ms. Saucier said her son has accepted responsibility for what he did, acknowledging that speaking out will not change her son’s situation. But she added that Americans should consider whether a “double standard” is at play.
“We as Americans, as patriots of the United States of America, need to stand up against this double standard. Whether it’s Hillary Clinton or other people in this administration. It needs to stop because our rights will continue to be taken away. That’s why I’m speaking out,” she said, asking for prayers for her son.
Petty Officer First Class Kristian Saucier allegedly used a cellphone camera to take photos in the classified engine room of the nuclear submarine where he worked as a mechanic, the USS Alexandria, then destroyed a laptop, camera, and memory card after learning he was under investigation.
Saucier even tried using the ‘Hillary defense‘ to get out of his charges, despite the classified information in his case being far less sensitive than what the former Secretary of State left wide open on her bathroom server.
