Trump’s team denies president plans to pardon himself

U.S. President Donald

He continued: "I think that what Rudy has done is a shame and a disgrace as a former US attorney, and as a former justice official, he knows better, and it's an outright lie".

Trump and his administration have been focused on discrediting a special counsel probe into Russian Federation and the Trump campaign that is being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

President Trump's lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani said Wednesday that the legal team of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is "trying very, very hard to frame" the president.

"I mean, we're leaning toward not", Mr Giuliani told ABC.

'The basic argument on the side that says he can do it is, look at the Constitution and it doesn't say he can't.

One of Trump's lawyers on Sunday also spoke of Trump's broad claim to power, saying the president probably could pardon himself but was unlikely to do so. I think the presidential power-there's nothing that limits the presidential power of pardon from a federal crime, not a state crime. The president expressed dismay that, when still a candidate, he wasn't told that authorities were probing Paul Manafort, who was hired as Trump's campaign chairman.

"The constitution gave the president the right to pardon himself", Giuliani said Sunday, adding that Trump would not need to because "he didn't do anything wrong". "Why is it always that somebody. you think that Jay Sekulow lied? When he says the President is not contemplating something, I have no faith in that whatsoever", he said.

Trump's team and allies have waged a public relations campaign against Mueller and the Justice Department to discredit the investigation and soften the impact of the special counsel's potential findings.

"We had Repeal & Replace done (and the saving to our country of one trillion dollars) except for one person, but it is getting done anyway. There's no wiggle room here", Bharara said.

"They have revealed no evidence that President Trump has done anything wrong", he added. "He's innocent. He hasn't done anything wrong", Giuliani said.

"Even if it's right legally", Noah said Monday on "The Daily Show", that "doesn't sound like a democracy to me". Todd asked him to clarify whether he was making the case "that [Trump] didn't obstruct or that a president can not obstruct justice". I think in Mueller's case, it's more that he's not taking control of these people that work for him.

He echoed the argument his lawyers made in a January memo to the United States special counsel leading the investigation.

"I don't believe that would be a legal question", McCarthy said.

'The answer is we don't know.

"Pardoning himself would be unthinkable and probably lead to immediate impeachment", he said.
