WASHINGTON, D.C. – Shortly after President Trump pardoned Corn the turkey as part of the annual tradition of presidential turkey pardons, New York Attorney General, Letitia James, reminded Americans that presidential pardons do not apply to state crimes.
“Although Corn may have gotten off Scot-free from egregious federal crimes, this terrible turkey is still accountable to the state of New York,” said James, “Whether it’s bribery, racketeering, money laundering, corruption, sexual assault, sexual harassment, perjury, or obstruction of justice, all foul fowl must still answer to the state of New York for any crimes they have committed. Bad birds that break the law in the Empire State will be brought to justice,” she added.
At press time, Corn was being closely monitored after being deemed a possible flight risk.
