According to Rudy Giuliani, there is nothing in the U.S. constitution - which gives the sitting president the power to issue pardons - to suggest that Mr Trump could not excuse himself if he wanted to.
United States President Donald Trump, under pressure from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 USA election, probably has the power to pardon himself but does not plan to do so, his attorney Rudy Giuliani has said.
Responding to Giuliani's comments, former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara told CNN's Dana Bash that "If the President decided he was going to pardon himself, that's nearly self-executing impeachment".
And Renato Mariotti, another former federal prosecutor, retorted, "If this sounds like tyranny to you, that's because it is".
Trump Aide: Canada Trade Row a "family Quarrel", Trudeau Overreacting
Chrystia Freeland made the comments to CNN's Dana Bash on " State of the Union " Sunday after a week of heightened trade tensions. He further said that the retaliatory tariffs would only be applied to United States goods and would come into effect from July 1.
Republican Reps. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Will Hurd (R-TX) on Sunday warned President Donald Trump against pardoning himself. If this sounds like tyranny to you, that's because it is. Dowd has since left Trump's legal team, replaced by Giuliani. Trump's assertion that he can simply waive-away investigations into misconduct because he is anxious that the investigation might end badly for his friends or family members is toxic to that entire scheme.
"It remains our position that the President's actions here, by virtue of his position as the chief law enforcement officer, could neither constitutionally nor legally constitute obstruction because that would amount to him obstructing himself", Mr Trump's lawyers wrote.
'They will take it to court, and I believe the court's going to be on the president's side on this, ' Lewandowski said.
Giuliani also claimed that Trump had the authority to end the investigation into him in comments that come hot on the heels of the publication of a 20-page document sent to Mueller from Trump's legal team earlier this year.

Both Sekulow and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders claimed, falsely, that Trump had not dictated the statement, but had merely offered his son suggestions. It begins with Trump's on-camera statement to Lester Holt that "when I chose to just do it" and fire Comey, "I said to myself. you know this Russian Federation thing with Trump is a made-up story". They have to make a decision without him.
While saying on Sunday that Trump wanted to sit down with Mueller, Giuliani added, "It's beginning to get resolved in favor of not doing it".
"It could lead to impeachment", Giuliani said, referring to the idea of Trump pardoning himself. "I think even thinking about trying to fire [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller is a bad move politically".
