Incoming New York Attorney General Letitia James has outlined some specific investigations involving President Trump and those in his circle that she plans to pursue once in office.

James told NBC News that she will look into any government subsidies Trump’s received, illegalities involving Trump’s real estate holdings in New York, the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian official and whether his businesses are in violation of the emoluments clause. James will also inherit the state’s lawsuit against the Trump Foundation.

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

During her campaign, James also pledged to pursue a change to New York’s double jeopardy laws, which would allow the state to potentially press charges against individuals pardoned at the federal level. [NBC] — Kathryn Brenzel
