Kodak’s Sexual Assault Case Is Part Of State Charges And Not Federal
What didn’t help Kodak get pardoned in this case is that it is a state charge and not federal, like the firearms case was. Courthouse News added that Trump did not speak on this sexual assault case.

He insisted though that prosecutors will move as quickly as they can in progressing further in the case. Kodak still hasn’t spoken on this matter yet.
