Republican House Speaker says Trump shouldn't pardon himself

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani said Trump probably has the power himself if found guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

"I think that there's a constitutional authority for the president to pardon himself", Biggs said.

He then again decried special counsel Robert Mueller's probe as a "never ending Witch Hunt". The document also argues that Trump "could, if he wished, terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon if he so desired".

But he said doing so would have "tough" political ramifications.

President Donald Trump says he wants to know "what is taking so long" with an internal Justice Department probe expected to criticize the Federal Bureau of Investigation and its handling of the case involving Democrat Hillary Clinton's private email server.

The talk of self-pardoning has raised eyebrows amid the roiling debate over the Russian Federation meddling inquiry and the president's cooperation - or lack of it. Trump has issued a series of ever-sharper tweets attacking the Mueller probe as politically motivated and insisting there was "no collusion" between his campaign team and Russian Federation. You wait for someone else to say it, or you die.

"He has no intention of pardoning himself", Giuliani told ABC's "This Week".

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

"Let me just tell you that from - from my perspective - I don't think the president needs any advice on pardoning himself", McConnell said.

'You can't pardon yourself, ' Democratic US Representative Ted Deutch said in response to Trump on Twitter. 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.

Bharara, who was appointed by former president Barack Obama, told CNN that for a president to pardon himself would be "outrageous".

A 20-page January letter from Trump's lawyers to Mueller that leaked to the media over the weekend argued that the White House has answered all of Mueller's questions and requests, and so he can not legally force the president to answer questions.

Giuliani said that a move by Trump to pardon himself would likely trigger blowback that could lead to his impeachment.

"Your office clearly lacks the requisite need to personally interview the president", it said.
