Warrant issued in AIPAC case


(JTA) - An arrest warrant was issued for a Pentagon staffer accused of giving classified information to former American Israel Public Affairs Committee officials.

The U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of West Virginia announced the arrest warrant for Lawrence Franklin on Tuesday on charges of possessing classified documents at his home.
A criminal complaint was filed earlier this month in a Virginia federal court, accusing Franklin of giving classified information to Steve Rosen, AIPAC's former policy director, and to Keith Weissman, a former AIPAC Iran specialist. Franklin is expected to appear in the Virginia court today (Fri.) for a preliminary hearing. The new charges, which were filed separately because of jurisdiction issues, came during AIPAC's annual policy conference in Washington. "
