The Associated Press has just released an article which bounces off of the USA Today article on non-disclosure of documents in the Clinton Presidential Library (discussed here). The AP reports that the library released 2,830 pages of documents this week on pardons President Bill Clinton considered for Marc Rich and others during his last months in office but withheld another 1,114 pages. The documents, again, were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by USA Today when the library first began accepting such requests. The AP says the documents "show intense lobbying by celebrities, politicians and foreign leaders." Among them, former heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe, who sought a pardon for kidnapping his first wife and their children. See complete story here.
