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.

Why shouldn't Pollard be let go by now? I suggest he not be pardoned, but that his sentence be commuted to time served (which is now more than twenty years, much longer than sentences in other cases involving espionage on behalf of allies.). There would be no national security risk involved in letting him live out his sad life as a free man.
