DOJ takes new look at ex-Navy sailor's request for presidential pardon

DOJ takes new look at ex-Navy sailor's request for presidential pardon | 02 March 2018 | The Department of Justice is taking a new look at a former U.S. Navy sailor's request for a pardon following his release from jail for taking photos of classified areas inside a nuclear submarine, his attorney said. The letter, from the DOJ Office of the Pardon Attorney, comes less than a year after the former sailor, Kristian Saucier, received a letter rejecting his pardon request on the grounds that it did not meet several criteria, including waiting five years. The letter last year came as a disappointment to Saucier, who served one year in jail, and his supporters, given that President Donald Trump -- during his campaign and after he took office -- had drawn attention to the handling of his case, describing it as overzealous and politically motivated.
