Unlikely that Trump could self pardon (letter to the editor)

26 Juillet 2017

Last week, The Washington Post reported that Trump's legal team had begun exploring possibilities regarding President Trump's powers to pardon those involved in the Russian Federation scandal.

"It's very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President", he said in a second tweet shortly after. The only way Trump can get a pardon is to invoke the twenty-fifth amendment to the United States constitution. They pressed that the "The Constitution specifically bars the president from using the pardon power to prevent his own impeachment and removal".

A private interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee is being discussed by Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort. "I think in a political sphere, I would caution someone to think about pardoning themselves or family members or et cetera", he said.

But U.S. intelligence agencies intercepted communications that showed Kislyak indicated he had "substantive" discussions on matters including Trump's positions on Russia-related issues and prospects for U.S. -Russia relations in a Trump administration. "The President is not going to have to pardon anybody because the Russian thing is a nonsensical thing".

"Clearly the constitution does vest a plenary pardon power within the presidency", attorney Jay Sekulow told ABC's George Stephanopoulos, adding that it was not something the White House is considering now. "There's nothing to pardon from", he said.

"I think it would cause a cataclysm in Washington". The public disclosures helped lead to a special prosecutor, Robert Mueller, taking over the investigation.

But, according to communications director Anthony Scaramucci, Trump has at least been mulling the power.

Mr Trump did not specify who, if anyone, he might consider pardoning.

When asked on CNN's "State of the Union" who the President is considering pardoning, Scaramucci said "nobody".

The president also in his Twitter rant Saturday defended his son, Donald Trump Jr., who has come under scrutiny for his meeting with a Russian lawyer during the election, and returned to a campaign theme on alleged wrongs by Hillary Clinton and her associates. "He says he brought that up, but he doesn't have to be pardoned, there's nobody around him that has to be pardoned". The committee's chairman, Sen.

Trump's son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner is scheduled to testify behind closed doors on Monday before the Senate Intelligence Committee and on Tuesday he will appear before the analogous House committee to answer lawmakers' questions about his Russian contacts during the election campaign.

His assertion comes amid investigations into Russian interference in last year's presidential election. But the Post later reported that Sessions, who served as a top foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, met with Kislyak at least twice previous year.
