Trump to Possibly Pardon Himself


WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Trump’s lawyers are asserting broad constitutional powers in their effort to avoid a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller.

On Sunday, Rudy Giuliani was asked if the president has the authority to pardon himself.

“He probably does,” Giuliani said. “He has no intention of pardoning himself, but he probably… doesn’t say he can’t…”

The possibility of a self- pardon was raised in a memo Trump’s attorneys sent Mueller in January.

It was published on Saturday by the New York Times.

However, Democrats in Congress say if this happens they’ll call for impeachment.
