Ari & I: July 2, 2001

Russell Mokhiber

Mokhiber: Ari, on the death penalty, two questions.

The District Attorney in Houston will decide within the month whether to seek the death penalty against Andrea Yates -- she's the mother who drowned her five kids. Has the President expressed an opinion on whether this woman should be put to death for that crime?

Ari Fleischer: No, Russell, I have not heard him do so and he doesn't engage in that type of speculation. That's not the job of the President.
