8. I don't even know where to start.

The only thing that matters, as to Trump's ability to pardon, is whether the crimes are state or federal.

Yes, there are certainly activities that could be covered by both federal and state statutes. But that wasn't the question posed. The question was whether "the case" could just be handed over to the state to avoid Trump being able to pardon him. It does't work that way.

If the activities took place in New York, Connecticut would have no jurisdiction. But again, not the point.

The only thing that matters as to whether Trump can pardon him is whether the activities constituted state v. federal crimes (regardless of where they happened).
