If he gave the same info Pollard gave to Israelis, he should be prosecuted.
The Israelis took US nuclear secrets and gave them to the Soviets in exchange for Russians jews.
I am a big friend of Israel, but this unacceptable behavior from a friend.

I have never seen any good claims on Pollard giving intel to the USSR or even his intel being handed over.
CIA and FBI people claim he handed over names of spies, the only problem being that he had no access to this information. A few years later we find out about Aldrich Ames. I'm not suggesting that Pollard should be let go, he shouldn't. I just think he was the fall guy for FBI and CIA counter-intelligence failure and malfeasance.
As for the Israelis who call for Pollard's release, they are either trying to sabotage US-Israeli relations, or they are proof taht not all Jews are intelligent.

I have no problem with prosecution of anyone who passes secrets including Pollard. I think the punishment should be proportional to the offense and the reality is that nobody has been punished the way Pollard was. Do you have any real evidence that the Israelis gave Pollard’s info to the Soviets? I have never seen any.
But also remember that we have given both China and Russia design secrets for nuclear weapons and our NMD designs.
