Trump Tweets He Could Pardon Himself, But Hints He Won’t
(Undated) — President Trump seems to buy his attorneys’ argument that he can pardon himself, but in a tweet this morning, he hints that he wouldn’t. Trump tweeted, “As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?” He went on to say, “In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!” A number of legal scholars who aren’t working on Trump’s Russia investigation team have written and said in interviews that Congress or the courts will decide the question of how unlimited a president’s power is.
