Trump can probably pardon himself, but has no plan to: Giuliani

Some across social media find Rudy Giuliani's comments when asked about President Trump's strategies questionable as many feel he shows less support for Trump and more for Democrats by his answers.

"He has no intention of pardoning himself, but he probably does [have the power to]", Giuliani told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week".

"You might want to say he has very broad powers and somebody who wants to question that under Article Two has a big, big burden of showing that there is no innocent explanation for what he did", Giuliani responded.

The question of self-pardon arose after the New York Times published a letter to the counsel from Mr Trump's lawyers. "Pardoning other people is one thing, pardoning yourself is another".

"They have to make a decision without it", Giuliani said on ABC's "This Week," noting that the Trump team has already made available several witnesses and turned over more than a million documents. Writing in a tweet in July 2017, the president asserted his "complete power to pardon" in response to the investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election.

We'll say, "Hey, you've got everything you need".

Rotondo refused the judge's request to work things out directly with his parents, who sat quietly nearby. On Friday, Rotondo stood outside the place he once called home but had some trouble before then.

Rudy Giuliani is supposed to be on cleanup duty, but he keeps making a mess.

"I believe the court is going to be on the President's side on this", Lewandowski added.

President Trump's personal lawyer speaks out on "Hannity" about the Russian Federation investigation and the Trump team's strategy of speaking directly to the American people.

Trump also said he was considering pardoning lifestyle maven Martha Stewart and commuting the prison sentence of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, convicted of corruption charges.

Giuliani said last month that he wanted any interview of Trump to be limited in scope and length, suggesting it to be only 2-1/2 hours and not under oath.

"It could lead to impeachment, if he terminated an investigation of himself", Giuliani said in a separate interview on NBC's "Meet the Press". "I think if the president decided he was going to pardon himself, I think it is nearly self-executing impeachment", Bharara said. Critics accused Trump of subverting the rule of law.
