Giuliani: Mueller’s team is trying ‘very hard to frame’ Trump

United States President Donald Trump, under pressure from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election, probably has the power to pardon himself but does not plan to do so, his attorney Rudy Giuliani has said.

In the letter, Democrats from the House Judiciary Committee expressed concerns to McGahn about Trump's pardon decisions thus far, and took issue with the president's claim this week that he has "the absolute right" to pardon himself.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's office is "trying very, very hard to frame" President Donald Trump, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said at a conference Wednesday in Israel.

Trump's comments come after one of his attorneys in the Russian Federation investigation, Rudy Giuliani, said Sunday that Trump "probably does" have the power to pardon himself, but won't. In the memos, lawyers argued that Trump could not have obstructed justice because the Constitution enables him to "if he wished, terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon".

But he said doing so would have "tough" political ramifications.

On Tuesday, the Senate's Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, also discouraged talk of a self-pardon by Trump. You say he didn't. He's not going to pardon himself.

It's the latest salvo from Trump in his bid to discredit the ongoing probe by special counsel Robert Mueller.

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.

Giuliani said there was no choice but to cancel the June 12 summit after Kim insulted the US vice-president and national security and threatened nuclear war.

Rudy Giuliani: "It's not going to happen, so it's a hypothetical point".

"Thankfully, the President has not done anything wrong and wouldn't have any need for a pardon", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.

The Constitution gives the president the "Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment". "Despite that, we play the game because I, unlike the Democrats, have done nothing wrong!" - he initially wrote. "They said the President had nothing to do with that statement by Donald Trump Jr., and didn't draft it, didn't sign off on it and it turns out that is completely untrue". Trump has also said there was no collusion by his campaign. "If presidents had the power to pardon themselves, we'd no longer be a democracy", Schumer said.
