    Back in the day, a navy crewman was put in prison and forced to resign for taking pictures of his sub to show his buddy. He is now suing the powers that be that allow those in positions of power to be able to do this without the repercussions he faced.

    He is correct, but finding a Judge in the Swamp to rule his way is another problem altogether.

    I suspect there is more to it then. The crewman likely had an enemy in a position of authority.

    So a guy who pled guilty and accepted a pardon (both admissions of guilt) really thinks he can sue because people in dissimilar circumstances were treated differently?

    I imagine this is a publicity stunt to appeal to Fox news and their gullible supporters like yourself. If his lawyer ever does file such an obviously frivolous lawsuit, it should be dismissed and sanctions imposed under Rule 11.https://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frcp/rule_11

    Accepting a pardon is not an admission of guilt. Any run of the mill 3rd grader knows that much.

    Those third graders must not have read Burdick v. US where the SCOTUS ruled more than a 100 years ago that acceptance of a pardon was an admission of guilt.

    Well then, no chance Hillary will ever be pardoned.

    Thanks for that
