Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a radio interview on Monday signaled his support for a bill that allow New York prosecutors to bring cases against those who have received presidential pardons.

The double jeopardy legislation is being considered by state lawmakers this month after meeting with Attorney General Letitia James, who has investigated several aspects of President Donald Trump’s business interests, including an effort in 2014 to purchase the Buffalo Bills.

“I think you’re in a situation now where you have a White House and an administration that is defying the rule of law, disrespecting the Department of Justice,” Cuomo said on WAMC this morning.

“I think there should be a safeguard.”

The bill was initially proposed as President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, would receive a presidential pardon following money laundering and fraud convictions.

Other Trump former campaign and administration figures are facing legal scrutiny as well as part of a widening case surrounding the investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

But an amended version of the bill would only allow prosecutes to seek charges against those who have worked for a sitting president or were part of their family.
