Incoming NY Attorney General Already Targeting Trump

Incoming New York attorney general Letitia James will use her new office to first and foremost investigate President Donald Trump, his family, and his associates.

“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well,” James recently told NBC News.

In particular, James is ready to investigate the Trump Foundation, Trump's real estate holdings, whether he is violating the emoluments clause through his businesses, his millions of dollars in tax breaks, and the controversial Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian official during the 2016 presidential campaign. 

James will also target individuals Trump hopes to pardon with a bill to change New York's double jeopardy laws. 

"I think within the first 100 days this bill will be passed," she said. "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."

Trump critics are already singing James's praises.

James's predecessor, Eric Schneiderman, was forced to resign last May as attorney general after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment. The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow broke the story, quoting women who said Schneiderman hurled death threats at them and engaged in "nonconsensual physical violence." Two of his supposed victims told Farrow that Schneiderman was so violent they had to seek medical treatment.
