President Trump likes to often remind us he is the President of the United States. Although it has never been done, in a recent tweet, he reminded us that he has the “absolute right” to pardon himself. His reference is in response to Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling and whether he obstructed any justice.
“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?” he tweeted. “In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!”
His tweet comes after his attorney, former mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani, mentioned that the president “probably” has the power to do so but doesn’t plan on doing it.
Well, we wish we had that kind of power, too. He may not have any intentions, but Trump may surprise us. Even though he claims he is innocent, do you think this makes him look guilty? 13% of people think it does. On the other hand, 87% of people don’t think so and think he is just taunting Mueller.
