NBC News is reporting that New York Attorney Gen.-elect 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.

NBC reporter writes that 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. That change would allow her 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.
