3. They do have to be convicted in Fed court first.

Otherwise no double jeopardy.

8. I figured as much...anyone in construction in the NY City area I'm sure came up against ...

them all of the time. This is one of the things I worry about, that RUMP will pardon some of these reprehensible persons who killed and pillaged victims in NYC and the like. I know that the FBI did a number on them (the mob) but I'm am sure quite a few of them stayed out of sight/out of mind and still are operating.

Looking at the list of pardons that RUMP has already issued, this is going to be one of the hot spots that RUMP is going to have serious issues in justifying.

Take care...

9. Citing D'Souza Pardon, NY AG Repeats Call To Change Double Jeopardy Law

NY has a strange double jeopardy law that needs to be changed https://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/citing-dsouza-pardon-ny-ag-repeats-call-to-change-double-jeopardy-law

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood on Thursday repeated her office’s call on lawmakers to change state law in order to ensure individuals pardoned by President Donald Trump could still face legal consequences.

Trump announced earlier Thursday that he would pardon conservative troll Dinesh D’Souza, who in 2014 pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations.

“President Trump’s latest pardon makes crystal clear his willingness to use his pardon power to thwart the cause of justice, rather than advance it,” Underwood wrote. “By pardoning Dinesh D’Souza, President Trump is undermining the rule of law by pardoning a political supporter who is an unapologetic convicted felon.”

At issue is Article 40 of the state’s Criminal Procedure Law, which, aside from certain exceptions, prevents state prosecution of crimes for which an individual has pleaded guilty or faced jury trial in any other jurisdiction, including federal court. Slate’s Jed Shugerman explained the law in more depth last month.

“First it was Sheriff Joe Arpaio,” Underwood wrote. “Then it was Scooter Libby. Now it’s Dinesh D’Souza. We can’t afford to wait to see who will be next. Lawmakers must act now to close New York’s double jeopardy loophole and ensure that anyone who evades federal justice by virtue of a politically expedient pardon can be held accountable if they violate New York law.”

Eric Schniederman, who resigned as New York attorney general earlier this month after the New Yorker published detailed allegations of abuse by him, called for the same change in state law last month.
