Trump: I have the Absolute Right to Grant Myself Pardon. US President Donald Trump can pardon himself if accused in the Russia investigation. Trump himself confirmed that on Twitter. He also denounced the appointment of special prosecutor Robert Mueller.
“I have the absolute right to grant myself amnesty, many legal scholars have made it clear,” was the American president’s message on his Twitter account. “But why should I do that if I have done absolutely nothing wrong?”
“Why would he have to pardon himself if he did not do anything wrong?” Trump’s assistant in the White House, Kellyanne Conway, also responded when a reporter asked her why Trump had begun. ‘You enjoy being involved in hypotheses all the time. That is probably easier than working on North Korea and trade policy. “
Trump also called the appointment of special prosecutor Robert Mueller on Twitter “unconstitutional”. “Nevertheless, we play the game because, unlike the Democrats, I have not done anything wrong.”
Former FBI director Mueller examines whether Trump or his staff worked together with Russia in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election and whether Moscow intervened in the election process.
