Hillary Concerned About "Due Process Issues"
NY Times, JTA and others - September 14, 2000
U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said she is
concerned about the use of secret evidence in the case of
Jonathan Pollard, the former U.S. naval analyst serving a life sentence
in a U.S. prison for spying for Israel.
In a televised debate, her Republican opponent, Rep. Rick Lazio,
sidestepped the question of whether he believed Pollard should be
pardoned and criticized President Clinton for not yet making a decision
whether to grant Pollard clemency.
The New York Times (09/14/00) quotes Mrs. Clinton as saying, "The
question for me is around the due process issues concerning the way that
he (Pollard) was sentenced."
