Kentucky AG Asks FBI To Probe Former Gov’s Pardons

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports:

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is asking the FBI to investigate former Gov. Matt Bevin’s pardons.

“I stand by the outstanding work of Kentucky’s prosecutors and respect the decisions of juries who convict wrongdoers,” Cameron said in a Monday letter delivered to state Rep. Chris Harris and Sen. Morgan McGarvey.

“While Kentucky’s Constitution gives the governor the power to pardon a person convicted of a crime, I believe the pardon power should be used sparingly and only after great deliberation with due concern for public safety,” Cameron wrote.
