7. Newt Gingrich: U.S. should consider clemency for Jonathan Pollard
Leading Republican White House hopeful says he has a study under way comparing Pollard's sentence with comparable people sentenced for comparable deeds.‬


"Leading Republican White House hopeful Newt Gingrich discusses Jonathan Pollard in an Interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN Wednesday. Gingrich says he is leaning towards clemency in the case of Jonathan Pollard, but hasnt all the information needed to make up his mind.

There are secrecy things involved here that I frankly don't - and I want to have access to as a candidate, and I don't think it's necessarily appropriate to have access to it, he said. But I am very cautious about what position I would take on that.

I am prepared to say my bias is towards clemency, and I would like to review it. He's been in a very long time. But we are pretty tough about people spying on the United States.

Gingrich says he has a study under way to compare his sentence with comparable people who have been sentenced for very long sentences for comparable deeds.‬
