Clinton Library-Pardons
LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- More than a thousand pages covering pardons granted by former president Bill Clinton during his final days in office have been withheld from the public.

Archivists at the Clinton Presidential Library decided to keep the papers out of a larger batch recently released because they covered confidential discussions with advisers.

Included in the more than 2800 documents that have been made public, letters in support of fugitive financier Marc Rich and his partner, both of whom were pardoned by Clinton.

The delays by the library in releasing documents have led to sharp criticism of Clinton and former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

A spokeswoman for the National Archives, which runs the library, now says they may have misinterpreted a 2002 letter from the former president in which he left instructions on which pardon documents should be made public.

The library is expected to release 10,000 pages of Hillary Clinton's schedules as first lady later this month.

2. I agree. I just don't feel comfortable knowing their history with Rich & Foreign Library Sponsors
To move forward with HRC. For all we know, governments could be giving Bill money to peddle influence to HRC. It's only logical. How many no-bid contracts will she award, how many weapons and technologies will she give access to, how many questionable supporters will she pardon? This is a ship of denial waiting to sink, if they don't release that information. It could cause serious harm to the party, that goes beyond the Presidential nomination.
