Jonathan Pollard, the former U.S. Navy officer convicted of espionage for Israel, has ended his probation and is expected to move to the Jewish state in the near future. Mr. Pollard was one of the most prolific spies in US history, having shared thousands of classified information with Israel during the Cold War. The Department of Justice’s Parole Board decided on Friday to allow a travel ban for Mr. Pollard after 30 years in prison. According to the New York Times, he is the only American ever to be sentenced to life imprisonment for spying on behalf of an ally. The espionage affair weighed on relations between the US and Israel for decades. The decision to lift its travel restrictions is seen as a parting gift from the Trump administration to the Israelis, which Israel greatly favored during its tenure. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long pushed for the release of Mr Pollard and, after he was granted Israeli citizenship in 1995, tried to bring him to Israel as part of diplomatic negotiations. « The Prime Minister expects to see Jonathan Pollard soon in Israel and, along with all Israelis, wishes him and his wife Esther all the best, » Mr. Netanyahu’s office said in a statement on Saturday evening. Mr. Pollard was a young U.S. Navy civilian intelligence analyst who sold military secrets to the Israelis in exchange for thousands of dollars a month while working at the Pentagon in the 1980s. A year and a half after spying, he was arrested by FBI agents in 1985 while trying to apply for asylum at the Israeli embassy in Washington. The 66-year-old convicted spy was released from federal prison in 2015 after 30 years in prison and parole. A five-year travel ban was imposed on him, as well as probation conditions such as a curfew, restrictions on taking on jobs and a location tag. « We are grateful and pleased that our client is finally free from any restrictions and is now a free man in every way, » said Mr. Pollard’s lawyers. « We look forward to seeing our customer in Israel. « His lawyer, Eliot Lauer, told Channel 12 TV that Pollard was » excited « and determined to move to Israel, but it would be some time as Pollard’s wife was receiving medical treatment for cancer.

Mike Kelly (R-Pa. ) are filing a lawsuit, hoping to block the confirmation of the Pennsylvania election results, alleging that a state bill passed in 2019 allowing universal mail-in voting is unconstitutional.

November 2020The lawsuit quickly met with heavy criticism, including allegations that Kelly (who has just been re-elected) and the other plaintiffs « openly oppose democracy and the rule of law » « But many observers were simply at a loss. For starters, the law was passed over a year ago, which raises questions about why its constitutionality was not brought up between then and now. It was also enforced thanks to a majority GOP legislature with only one Republican member of the State House voting against it, while the GOP Senators unanimously supported it. > In the lawsuit filed in the Commonwealth Court this morning, plaintiffs say Act 77 is « unconstitutional » and « illegally implemented ». « They argue it is an illegal attempt to override postal voting restrictions and would have to go through a constitutional amendment first / 3 >> – Matt Maisel (@Matt_Maisel) 21.

Boris Johnson has been asked to grant asylum to a Pakistani Christian girl who was forced to marry a Muslim man who is accused of kidnapping and raping her at gunpoint. The 14-year-old girl’s family claim she was kidnapped last year by Mohamad Nakash, who used extortion and threats of violence to sign false papers approving marriage. In August, a judge’s order to take her to a women’s refuge was overturned by a higher court, which declared the marriage legal and returned her to Mr. Nakash’s home. The girl then fled and is now hiding. However, her lawyer alleges that staff members of Mr. Nakash, who turned up en masse at the trial, tried to hunt her down. The British charity Aid to Church in Need, which campaigns for persecuted Christians around the world, has now started a petition calling on the government to grant the girl asylum. « This shocking case is an opportunity for Britain to demonstrate its commitment to the Christian welfare that so often feels abandoned by the West, » said spokesman John Pontifex.

There is a growing likelihood that the first round of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine will be launched in just a few weeks. In this case, only high priority groups such as health care workers are expected to have access. In theory, the pool will grow over time, but kids will likely have to wait a while. This is partly because younger people, while by no means invulnerable to COVID-19, are less prone to severe cases, but it also has to do with the fact that the youngest people Pfizer’s candidates received in court cases were between 12 and under 14 years old, Dr. . Moncef Slaoui, the White House vaccine tsar, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday.

President-elect Joe Biden has vowed to « make an unwavering commitment to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, » and U. . S.. . Officials expect he will focus on easing tension between Tehran and Washington once he’s in the Oval Office next year, NBC News reports. However, some experts believe it should hold out for a while before simply withdrawing sanctions and re-joining the 2015 nuclear deal that President Trump ended in 2018, prompting Iran’s decision to re-enrich its uranium. « I think it would be crazy to rejoin the deal without making a little more of it, » David Albright, an expert on Iran’s nuclear program at the Institute for Science and International Security, told NBC News. « Whatever you think of Trump – and I didn’t like it that he left the deal – he has created tremendous leverage on Iran and not using that seems just insane. With that in mind, it’s a gift to Biden. « However, Biden faces a ticking clock as Iran holds its elections in June 2021. President Hassan Rouhani, who is considered to be moderate, was ready to back the 2015 deal with the Obama administration, but his two-time limit has expired and there is no guarantee that his successor will want to do any kind of deal notes NBC News. Even if Biden were to go step-by-step and play hard ball, he would likely have to do so in the early months of his presidency. Read more at NBC News.
