Well this ought to be interesting.
The tweet followed The New York Times’ publication of a confidential letter over the weekend, in which Trump’s lawyers argued to special counsel Robert Mueller that the president’s broad powers mean he could not have obstructed justice.
The 20-page letter also suggested that the president even wields the constitutional ability to exercise the pardon power in matters related to the special counsel’s probe of the links between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The assertion that a U.S. president holds an “absolute” power to pardon himself was endorsed on Sunday by Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and a current member of Trump’s legal team.
In an ABC News interview, Giuliani said Trump “probably does” have the power to pardon himself, though “he has no intention” of doing so.
So I guess the Supreme Court should keep their cell phones charged I guess. Just in case.
