The President of the United States Donald trump wrote in Twitterthat he has every right to pardon himself, but sees no reason to do it.

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? In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!

«As noted by many lawyers, I have full right to pardon himself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong? At the same time, a never ending witch hunt, which is 13 very angry and conflicted Democrats (and others), continues in the middle term.»

Review of trump followed after the publication in the New York Times a 20-page letter from the lawyers of the President, intended the special Prosecutor , Robert Mueller. His defense argued that the President could not prevent the Russian investigation, since the U.S. Constitution gives him the right «to terminate the investigation, or even use his powers to pardon himself, if he so wishes».

Then a statement to this effect was made and his attorney Rudolph Giuliani, noting that trump «probably has» the right to pardon himself, but would not do it. And during the show on Sunday on NBC ‘s Meet the Press , human rights defender added that it would be something «unthinkable» if trump really did. He suggested that such a move could result in immediate impeachment.

In today’s tweet trump also noted that in the middle of his term, the so-called witch hunt (investigation of communication staff of the President with the Russian government) is still ongoing. And this is despite the fact that the appointment of Mueller was «absolutely unconstitutional».

The appointment of the Special Counsel is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Despite that, we play the game because I, unlike the Democrats, have done nothing wrong!

Earlier the American mass media there was information that the investigation of Russian intervention is coming to its end, as Muller has already sent lawyers to the President a list of 44 questions that spectacular to ask personally Trump. Questioning the President supposedly should be the last stage in the case, but his lawyers are trying to do everything that the White house had to talk with Muller.
