From NBC News:
New York Attorney Gen.-elect Letitia James says she plans to launch sweeping investigations into President Donald Trump, his family and “anyone” in his circle who may have violated the law once she settles into her new job next month.
“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well,” James, a Democrat, told NBC News in her first extensive interview since she was elected last month.
James outlined some of the probes she intends to pursue with regard to the president, his businesses and his family members.
Her first order of business, however, will be to pass a bill to change New York’s double jeopardy laws so that she can pursue state charges even if President Trump pardons someone for their federal crimes:
James campaigned on passing a bill to change New York’s double jeopardy laws with an eye on possible pardons coming out of the White House. James told NBC News she wants to be able to pursue state charges against anyone the president were to pardon over federal charges or convictions and whose alleged crimes took place in the state. Under current New York law, she might not be unable to do that.
“I think within the first 100 days this bill will be passed,” she said, adding, “It is a priority because I have concerns with respect to the possibility that this administration might pardon some individuals who might face some criminal charges, but I do not want them to be immune from state charges.”
(UPDATE) She shows no interest in investigating her “best friend” Al Sharpton, who, besides dodging IRS liens amounting to millions of dollars and still-outstanding libel/slander judgment from the Tawana Brawley circus under the claim that he’s broke, just had his self-owned charity “National Action Network” pay him $500,000 + for his life story. Quelle surprise. (It’s probably time to resurrect that riddle from the past: “What’s five inches wide, 9 inches long, and dangles in front of a black a**hole?” Answer: Al Sharpton’s necktie.
