U.S. Secret Service -- Letter 12/30/97

December 30, 1997
3801 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20008-4530

Phillip C. Leadroot, S.A.
U.S. Secret Service
Washington, DC 20036

Dear Mr. Leadroot:

This will alert the U.S. Secret Service to two additional persons who might have information of use or interest to the Secret Service or other federal law enforcement agencies.

JoAnna Pak

(home address as of October 25, 1991)

7807 Jacobs Drive
Greenbelt, MD 20770

tel. no. (301) 474-6858

JoAnna Pak was employed at Akin Gump as a secretary in the attorney recruiting department from March 19, 1990 to November 26, 1991. JoAnna Pak was terminated for gross misconduct (misrepresentation on overtime sheets). I was terminated about one month earlier, on October 29, 1991.

JoAnna Pak worked directly under Nina Eisenstein, director of attorney recruiting, and therefore would have been privy to matters relating to attorney hiring, specifically matters relating to Dennis M. Race, Esq., the firm's hiring partner.

Nina Eisenstein (director of attorney recruiting) was married to an Akin Gump partner, David Eisenstat, Esq., whose office was, as of 1991, located nearly adjacent to that of Malcolm Lassman, Esq., on the fourth floor.

Clarence T. Pollard, Esq.

(business address as of 1995)

650 California Street
San Francisco, CA

Clarence T. Pollard is an attorney, admitted to practice in Illinois. He earned a bachelor's degree at Yale University and a law degree at Indiana University in 1991. He was born in 1957.

Mr. Pollard was employed in the computer applications department in the Washington, D.C. office of Hogan & Hartson from about January 1987 to June 1987. He was referred to supervisor Sheryl Ferguson for employment by a fellow employee, Matthew Allender (whose employment ended on 9/25/87).

Mr. Pollard worked on the so-called "housing phase" of the Milwaukee Public Schools litigation, directly under supervising attorney Elliott Mincberg, Esq. (and possibly Steven J. Routh, Esq., 637-6472).

(Incidentally, Steven J. Routh, Esq. is a former law clerk of the Hon. John M. Ferren of the D.C. Court of Appeals, a member of the appellate panel that decided a prior appeal of my case, in 1995).

Mr. Pollard may have information concerning the goings-on at Hogan, specifically about me, that may be of interest to law enforcement.

I vaguely recall that sometime in 1987 Mr. Pollard was either a guest at a White House function or spoke at the White House; that would have been during the administration of President Ronald Reagan.

Certainly if Mr. Pollard can recall my showing any unusual curiosity about President Reagan, or issues relating to White House security, or means of gaining access to the White House, etc., -- this would be a matter of interest to the Secret Service.

Mr. Pollard will recall me, Daniel D. Cutler, Craig W. Dye, Matthew Allender, Cindy Rodda, and supervisors Sheryl Ferguson and Miriam T. Chilton, as well as Laura Mayo, who was employed as the department's secretary, and data base administrator Esperanza Rebollar. I vaguely recall that Elliott Mincberg, Esq. prepared a letter of recommendation for Mr. Pollard.

I can also recall that on one occasion in about June 1987 Mr. Pollard defined the word "propinquity" while riding on an elevator with Miriam T. Chilton. This recollection tells me that Mr. Pollard's employment extended to at least early June 1987, since Miriam Chilton began her tenure on about May 28, 1987. (Miriam T. Chilton succeeded interim supervisor Freddie Rios, now employed at the firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom).
