YIKES: Incoming New York AG promises ‘sweeping’ investigations of Trump, his business deals and his family

Try it you will like it

Meet New York Attorney General-elect Letitia James, who we’ll be hearing A LOT more from in the coming months as she just promised to investigate basically everyone and everything involving Donald Trump, including his family:

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.”
