Rejoice, Crooks! Use The “Hillary Defense”

Nobody really knows why Saucier was taking those pictures, but the fact that they contained photos of the submarine's propulsion system, which is a carefully guarded Naval engineering secret, his “crime” is being taken quite seriously. On the other hand, Hillary's mishandling of classified documents endangered an entire country.

Clinton, the lawyers say, had around 115 classified documents on her bathroom server, several of which were marked “top secret,” and faced no official repercussions for her reckless behavior. Saucier, they argue, should face a similar fate —or at least probation: “It will be unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid.”

Unfortunately for Saucier, his case differs from the Democratic nominee’s in a few key ways. First, Clinton claims that she wasn’t aware that her emails contained classified documents, and says she didn’t realize they were left unprotected.

The cases for an against this particular defense are interesting, but they all lead to the same conclusion, whether those debating them agree or not. To say that Saucier knew he wasn't supposed to take pictures because he was trained is the same as saying that Hillary knew how to handle classified information because she was trained and took the classes needed to handle it. And to say that Saucier isn't a presidential candidate shows exactly how corrupt American politics is. Obviously there will be different opinions on this, but the truth is exceedingly clear.
