Meeting & Pollard Lawsuit

Dear Mrs. Clinton,

Attached please find a copy of my letter to the editors of the New York Post. It dispels the Post's distortions and clearly explains my motive in reaching out to you:

"...my only goal in seeking a meeting with Mrs. Clinton is to present my husband's legal brief, and to have her speak with our attorneys, Eliot Lauer and Jacques Semmelman of the Park Avenue NY law firm Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle, so that she may act as a facilitator to bring the issue to her husband's attention."

Mrs. Clinton, our attorneys have the documents your husband needs in order to ensure the integrity of his review of the Pollard case. We are sure that once you meet with us, you will feel as strongly as we do that this information needs to be brought to the President's attention.

It is my understanding that this is the critical role that you played for Mr. Bronfman in facilitating the Holocaust Restitution issue, and in making the connection between Mr. Bronfman and your husband. It is my hope that on a humanitarian basis you will assist me in the same manner.

I am troubled to learn from those who have recently asked you about our proposed meeting that they are routinely told that such a meeting is "currently being arranged." Neither I nor my representatives have been contacted at all. I would deeply appreciate your contacting our attorneys to set up such a meeting as soon as possible.


Esther Pollard
(Mrs. Jonathan Pollard)

cc Eliot Lauer
Jacques Semmelman

P.S. Allow me to assure you that the Post's misrepresentation of our reaction to your initial intervention in my husband's case is simply not true. As I have previously written to you, while we are deeply grateful to you and to all those who intervened to prevent my husband's transfer to a violent and hostile environment, we were deeply disturbed by the ensuing publicity. As a prisoner, my husband can ill afford to "disturb the hornets' nest" as long as he still lives there, and that is the effect that such publicity has.
