‘I Have The Absolute Right To Pardon Myself’

Trump's team has attempted to discredit the investigation led by Robert Mueller and soften the impact of the special

Rudy Giuliani denied Monday that the disclosure by Donald Trump's attorneys that the President dictated a crucial statement on the infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting - a reversal from past denials - constituted a lie, instead claiming it was a routine mistake. "That's why he's tweeting about it".

Interviewed by NBC's Lester Holt shortly after firing Comey, Trump said this: "I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it".

President Donald Trump asserted Monday that he has the right to pardon himself but suggested that he won't use that power, adding that the special counsel investigation is "unconstitutional".

Mark Osler, a former federal prosecutor who runs a commutations clinic at the University of St. Thomas, said the most controversial legal question is not the pardon itself, but what comes after.

"One of the basic rules is that no man is a judge in his own case", Prof Wright said.

Mueller's proposed interview aims to determine whether Trump had any criminal intent to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation by firing former FBI Director James Comey and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. In the memos, lawyers argued that Trump could not have obstructed justice because the Constitution enables him to "if he wished, terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon". The truth is this country has never been put in a position to have to test such a predicament, and we ought to ask ourselves how we got to this point at all.

The US president is being investigated to establish whether there was collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election.

Trump's lawyers sent the letter as part of a broader argument that the President should not have to sit down with the special counsel. "They're questioning him about the Mueller probe".

Giuliani, who gained worldwide acclaim for his leadership as New York City's mayor during the September 11 attacks, argued that his work for Trump served a broader goal of protecting the office of the presidency.

One of the central questions around possible obstruction is Trump's decision in May 2017 to abruptly fire then-FBI Director James Comey.

Mr. Trump's legal team has long pushed the special counsel to narrow the scope of its interview.

"Listen, there's no way that'll happen", Christie told ABC. "Our recollection keeps changing" and sometimes needs to be corrected.

However he went on to explain that Trump would immediately face impeachment.

Trump's power grab could be checked by a Democratic victory in the midterms, or, should Mueller pursue a subpoena against Trump, by the Supreme Court. Some, including members of Congress who voted to impeach Bill Clinton for obstructing justice, will insist that presidential obstruction of justice is a contradiction in terms. He has already pardoned I Lewis Libby Jr, former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, and former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio.
