A former U.S. Navy seaman who spent a year in federal prison for photographing a classified area of a nuclear submarine plans to sue former President Barack Obama and fired FBI director James Comey for selectively prosecuting him.
Donald Trump issued a presidential pardon this year to Kristian Saucier, whose lawyer Ronald Daigle told Fox News on Monday that the pending lawsuit will also name the Justice Department as a defendant.
Daigle says former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was given a free pass by avoiding prosecution for mishandling classified information on her infamous private email server.

He was guilty though.
He should be glad he got the pardon. This just sounds like yet more silly partisan US politics to me.
Equal protection under the law extends to criminal prosecutions. If what Hillary did was just "carelessness" and "no reasonable prosecutor" would take on the case, then this sailor should never have been prosecuted.

1. Take pictures of classified areas in a nuclear sub.
2. Get arrested and prosecuted for it.
3. Write a letter to Donald Trump about how you want to sue Obama, because Hillary.
4. Get pardoned.
For a person who constantly accuses those who disagree with him of treason, Trump sure has no problem pardoning people who actually committ treason.
