While speaking with NBC News, James said she will use every corner of the law to look at any illegal activity committed.
“We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well,” James said.
Specifically, James will investigate any illegal activity associated with the president’s New York real-estate holdings, including the 2016 meeting with a Russian official at Trump Tower and any government subsidies he’s received.
“We want to investigate anyone in his orbit who has, in fact, violated the law,” the Democratic attorney general said.
After James announced her forthcoming investigation, Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen will face the music for lying to Congress and violating campaign laws. Cohen faces four years in prison.
