Letitia James, the incoming New York attorney general told reporters she intends to use her mandate to turn President Trump – and his family’s – lives into a living hell.
Besides preparing to sue the administration, her office will ruthlessly investigate New York real estate deals, the oft-cited Trump Tower meeting, accusations of cronyism, and the Trump Foundation.
NBC News reports:
“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.
“We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” said James, who was endorsed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
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.”
The progressive lighting rod has appointed former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to her transition team to identify cuthroat prosecutors eager to make a name for themselves in Trump-related investigations.
Given the president’s longstanding ties to New York state, James is poised to become the most recognizable, and powerful, state attorney general in the country.
