Sunday on ‘This Week’: President Trump’s Personal Attorney Rudy Giuliani

Trump Lawyers: A President Cannot Obstruct Justice Report: Giuliani says Trump will fight Russia probe subpoena | New Hampshire
| 04 June, 2018, 10:03

Giuliani said earlier on Sunday that Trump most likely has the power to pardon himself.

Trump's lawyers said, in the letter published by The New York Times, that he also has the power to pardon himself. Finally, the letter says, although Trump may have helped Donald Trump, Jr. lie about the meeting at Trump Tower in which a purported Russian government official was supposed to provide dirt on Hillary Clinton, that was just "a private matter with the New York Times", not an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and therefore not a crime about which he can be questioned. Topics of Mueller's obstruction investigation include the firings of FBI director James Comey and former national security adviser Michael Flynn, as well as Trump's reaction to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation investigation.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a Republican, made clear he did not think Trump or any other president should pardon himself.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie agreed on Sunday, telling "This Week" that there is "no way" Trump will pardon himself. This fact is coupled with a legal protection that makes the president not readily available to be interviewed unless the information can not be obtained by any other means.

Well, you know what's really costing us a lot of money if we want to go through the budget and get rid of expensive things?


Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump. How about you get rid of Scott Pruitt's private security force that he has with him at all times, because that's costing us three and a half million dollars every year.

"A president could not be prosecuted for murder?"

"If he and his lawyers persist with these types of arguments, it will end up being decided in the courts over a subpoena to testify or in Congress where impeachment, if nothing else, must place some limits on abuses of presidential powers", Rocah said. Sanders on Sunday referred questions about the matter to Trump's outside legal team. Previously, the Trump team had denied, unconvincingly, that the president had anything to do with that missive. "I don't think a president should pardon themselves". Key among these is the fact that Trump has the right to offer his opinion on any investigation as part of his role as the top law enforcement official in the United States.

It is dated 29 January and was sent to Mr Mueller by John Dowd, one of Mr Trump's lawyers who has since left the team.

But while in office, Giuliani insisted that the president's constitutional powers are too broad. The memo also hinted that the president could have the power to pardon himself if convicted of wrongdoing. "I'm not billing by the hour, otherwise I could tell you exactly", he joked about the case he has taken on for free. "I think [if] the president decided he was going to pardon himself, I think that's nearly self-executing impeachment", Bharara told CNN's 'State of the Union'.
