New York Attorney General Can Prosecute Trump

Trump tweeted:

AG James responded:

The Presidency Can’t Save Trump From State Prosecution

New York State has been trying to nail the crime wave known as the Trump family for decades. Thanks to the spotlight of the presidency, state investigators now have the resources that they need to build a case against the Trumps. The Trump family’s biggest legal threat won’t come from federal prosecution, although that could occur once Trump leaves office. State charges are what could land under indictment and in prison.

Attorney General James was correct. Trump isn’t above the law, and the presidency can’t protect him from a criminal indictment.
