So I had someone say "well the Trump economy is roaring". I'm I the only one who lost their job and seen small business crippled? Honestly I can ignore alot of their support of Trump the but oh I'm not a Trump supporter, oh I'm not a Republican... It seems unreal that I can literally see unemployment, I can see businesses failing, and there is pockets of people who, just like mask, are locked into a lie.

Can you elaborate?
The article goes into it a bit if you extend the visible part of the article.

Bringing a new case against Stone is possible thanks to Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York Legislature for Assembly Bill 6653. Signed into law last October, AB6653 enables New York district attorneys to prosecute what effectively amounts to certain friends and family of any president who pardoned them for federal convictions. Among the people who can be prosecuted are associates with information relevant to a civil or criminal investigation of the president.

Roger Stone Can Be Tried, Again

President Trump may think his former adviser is now in the clear, but his clemency can’t shield Stone from future prosecutions.

A future Justice Department would be well within its rights to open a new investigation into Stone’s activities. Such an investigation wouldn’t be hard: The very facts the jury found sufficient to convict Stone suggest that he may be guilty of other criminal offenses.

The same facts that led to Stone’s conviction suggest possible local charges in Washington, D.C.; New York; and Florida, as each appears to be a place where Stone committed his crimes or caused his crimes to be committed.

Finally, the commutation itself may be null and void if Trump carried it out to protect himself.

Ah yes, this makes more sense. For a second there I thought that NY State had passed a law to explicitly try this particular man again or to try people more than once for the same offenses. The supreme court would've had a field day with either. Thank you.

^ the legal theory of double jeopardy has long been understood that criminal defendants may be prosecuted for the same offenses in both federal and state court

The photoshopped memes with that image are going to be amazing.
