NY AG: President Trump Cannot Avoid Justice Even If He Pardons Himself

“It’s important to understand he is pardoned from federal crimes. But he is not pardoned from state crimes,” New York state’s attorney general Letitia James said on “The View.”

“Last year, I introduced a bill in the state legislature which would close the pardon loophole, so that individuals such as the President of the United States would not evade justice. It’s important we have this check on presidential powers. … the state legislature, I’m so happy they passed that bill and it is now the law in the state of New York. President Trump cannot avoid justice in the great state of New York.”

AG James went on to state that she believes that President Trump would step down in order to allow Vice President Mike Pence to pardon him.

“I suspect that he will pardon his family members, his children, his son-in-law, and individuals in his administration as well as some of his close associates. And then I suspect, at some point in time, he will step down and allow the vice president to pardon him.”

“Last year, I introduced a bill in the state legislature which would close the pardon loophole, so that individuals such as the President of the United States would not evade justice. It’s important we have this check on presidential powers,” continued AG James. “I’m so happy [the state legislature,] passed that bill and it is now the law in the state of New York. President Trump cannot avoid justice in the great state of New York.”
