Most folks would agree you don't keep trying someone over and over for the same thing until you get the verdict you want.

If they were to arrest all the submariners that have taken pictures of classified spaces while onboard, we wouldn't even have enough personnel to operate our submarines. It's ridiculous they arrested him for these photos. Revoking clearance would've been acceptable since we all know the consequences, but espionage charges are way over the top. Hillary should serve a year as well, just so we're treating everyone fairly and not continue operating under a 2-tier justice system.
I disagree he knew photography is not allowed. He knowingly violated the rules because like you he expected very little to no consequences. He deserved what he got it was stupid. When I was in the military I had to deal with classified material and you know the rules.
Now for Hillary she was treated differently but it has nothing to do with him. This isn't a case of one person got away with it so everyone can. Should she have been prosecuted probably does this guy have a law suit no he doesnt.

Metaphorically speaking. How many investigations have there been? Is every one of them invalid because they didn't result in any sanctions at all? We need to investigate her one more time? Or two? Or three? Until we get the results we want or she's died of old age?
Let me ask this.
What exactly do you think she did with that server that should result in an indictment and prosecution?
Honest and simple.
Only don't drag in benghazi, or Seth Rich or any of that #. What about this server has you tied up in knots?

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.
To be fair she didn't have bad intentions.

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.

Except what he did wasn’t treason. Treason is providing aid to the enemy. Did he attempt to give or sell the pictures to another government? No. He was just someone who thought the rules didn’t apply to him. That being said, I’ve been next to nuke subs in Norfolk and the MP’s don’t # around. It doesn’t matter if you’re civilian or military. The rules apply to everyone per the GIANT SIGNS with GIANT LETTERING that tell you that taking pictures in that area is a federal crime.
