Speaker Nancy Pelosi: ‘We Would… Put Pressure On The Chinese To Release The Prisoners’

Nancy Pelosi appeared on “Meet the Press” as a congresswoman, House minority leader and speaker of the House. On May 29, 1994, she discussed President Bill Clinton’s decision to renew China’s favorable trade status instead of using it as leverage to push China to improve on human rights issues, particularly on the issue of political prisoners. Pelosi said that the House would not reverse Clinton’s decision, but added, “We would be putting other sanctions in our legislation to put pressure on the Chinese to release the prisoners.”
