'I have the absolute right to pardon myself'

Trump said hopped on a report that put the tab for the investigation led by Robert Mueller that he called the'Russian hoax at $17 million

Rudy Giuliani indicated on Sunday that President Donald Trump's legal team will recommend Trump not do an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Referring to the Mueller investigation as a Witch Hunt, again, Trump said that it is being lead by angry, conflicted Democrats. Doing so, however, would likely immediately get him impeached, Giuliani told ABC News' "This Week".

Giuliani said Sunday it remains an open question whether the president will testify in the investigation.

Mr Giuliani - a former New York City mayor - also said the president had not yet decided whether to sit for an interview with Mr Mueller, but that his legal team were leaning towards advising him not to. "But the Constitution is clear", Warren said.

Diplomacy heats up before Trump-Kim summit
The North Korean side is led by Kim Chang Son, who effectively serves as chief of staff to Kim Jong Un. A top North Korean official boarded a flight in Beijing on Wednesday bound for NY and talks with U.S.

The president, whose tweets have increasingly questioned the legitimacy of the Mueller probe, went on Monday to call Mueller's appointment "totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL!"

But one legal expert questioned whether there was actually a consensus that a commander-in-chief can pardon himself.

President Trump sought to settle the widespread weekend chatter over whether he'd consider pardoning himself if charged in the Russian Federation probe - tweeting Monday that he has the "absolute right" to do so, but wouldn't have to since he's "done nothing wrong".

Preet Bharara, who was sacked by Trump, told CNN's "State of the Union" that a self-pardon would be "outrageous". Giuliani further acknowledged that halting Mueller's investigation would have huge political consequences, and "could lead to impeachment", because it would leave Congress and the courts the only formal check on presidential power. "No one is above the law, and that includes the president of the United States".

White House Announces Tariffs, Trade Restrictions To Be Placed On China
In response, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce said it was "surprised" by the move but at the same time "somewhat expected" it. But in subsequent weeks, negotiations with China focused on narrower concerns, such as the bilateral trade deficit.

The lawyers claimed in the January letter that President Donald Trump did in fact dictate his son's misleading statement to the New York Times in July of past year regarding a campaign-era meeting with Russians promising dirt on Hillary Clinton. "I don't know how you can indict while he's in office".

Harvard law professor Jack Goldsmith told the Times the law is unclear regarding "the intersection between the obstruction statutes and the president exercising his constitutional power to supervise an investigation in the Justice Department". "Despite that, we play the game because I, unlike the Democrats, have done nothing wrong!" he said.

Trump's lawyers don't want him to be interviewed by Mueller, accusing the independent prosecutor, himself a former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, of trying to "trap" the president in a lie.

Mr. Trump's legal team has long pushed the special counsel to narrow the scope of its interview. President Bill Clinton was charged with obstruction in 1998 by the House of Representatives as part of his impeachment trial.

Roseanne Barr Reportedly In ‘Deep Darkness’ Following Show Cancellation & Twitter Scandal
