'I have the absolute right to pardon myself'

"It was a mistake, I swear to God, it was a mistake", Giulianisaid on CNN Monday night, after The New York Times reported that, in a leaked 20-page letter to Russian Federation probe special counsel Robert Mueller, the president's legal team explained that Trump dictated the statement, contrary to what Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow previously claimed.

US President Donald Trump tweeted that he can not be indicted or subpoenaed and has the power to pardon himself.

"The appointment of the Special Counsel is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL!"

"Even if it's right legally", Noah said Monday on "The Daily Show", that "doesn't sound like a democracy to me".

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".

Mr Giuliani told ABC it was an "open question" whether Mr Trump would sit for an interview with Mr Mueller, but the President's lawyers were leaning against having him testify.

In the memo, sent to Mueller's office in January, the President's legal team said that the President can not, by definition, illegally obstruct any part of the Russian Federation probe because the Constitution gives him the power to end it in the first place.

Talk of a potential pardon comes after The New York Times published a 20-page letter to Mueller by Trump attorney Jay Sekulow and then-Trump lawyer John Dowd.

She replied: "Why would he need to pardon himself if he's done nothing wrong?"

"He could, if he wished, terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon if he so desired", the lawyers added.

Anything Trump writes on Twitter is instantly sent to more than 50 million accounts.

"Trump is making some incredibly expansive claims of executive power, as though there are no separation of powers limits on his authority". Though some scholars may differ and our court system has not ruled on this matter, subjecting our nation to this constitutional debate would strike at the foundation of one of the powers of the presidency.

Former mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani says President Trump could probably pardon himself, but he won't.

Mr Giuliani said "when you're interfering with the president, you're interfering with the country" and suggested the Mueller investigation already was affecting the president's important work, including a planned 12 June summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Trump claimed that he has accomplished more than any other presidents in the first 500 days in office.

"It seems unlikely in my mind that you could pardon yourself", said Republican Sen. After a year of investigations, Mueller hasn't produced proof of any such collusion and appears to have shifted toward a search for evidence that Trump impeded the investigation. But critics have accused the department of granting Mueller too broad a mandate. But in the only court challenge to that so far, a judge supported Mueller's mandate.
