Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed a measure Wednesday permitting New York state to press charges against those who have received presidential pardons.

The measure was passed to prevent President Trump’s ex-aides who are facing prison time or potential sentencing from receiving pardons and avoiding criminal punishment, NBC News reported. The network added that the legislation was a direct response to the president’s consideration of giving his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, a pardon.

The article goes on to state the following:

Manafort is serving in a federal prison after being convicted on bank fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy charges. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has also indicted him on state mortgage fraud charges.

Cuomo tweeted Wednesday morning, “#BREAKING: I just signed legislation closing New York’s double jeopardy loophole, authorizing the state to prosecute individuals pardoned by a president. No one is above the law and New York will not turn a blind eye to criminality, no matter who seeks to protect them.”
