Talk of Trump firing Mueller and pardoning himself has not gone down well with Republicans, who view it as political dynamite.
"It seems like it would be a completely wrong assumption".
"This understanding of presidential power is radical and absolutist", he said.
NBA finals schedule: When is Cavs vs Warriors Game 3?
James said people should not forget the championship season the Eagles had because of the situation with Trump. Last year, the Warriors trailed by six with 3:09 left before storming back to win 118-113 in Game 3 .
"This is the reason you don't let this president testify in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation", Giuliani told Stephanopoulos.
"And, once again, the president hasn't done anything wrong, and we feel very comfortable in that front", Sanders said.
One of Trump's lawyers on Sunday also spoke of Trump's broad claim to power, saying the president probably could pardon himself but was unlikely to do so.
He continued: "I think that what Rudy has done is a shame and a disgrace as a former US attorney, and as a former justice official, he knows better, and it's an outright lie".
U.S., China End Latest Trade Talks Without Settlement
Mr Trump has threatened to raise tariffs on a total of up to $US150 billion ($198 billion) of Chinese goods. US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the dispute was "on hold" and the tariff hike would be postponed.
The White House has started paperwork to pardon at least 30 people, according to two sources. "Pardoning yourself is another". "He's obviously not going to give up any of his pardon powers, or any future president's pardon powers, but under these circumstances he's not going to do that". "But it is a really interesting constitutional argument: 'Can the president pardon himself?'"
President Donald Trump says he wants to know "what is taking so long" with an internal Justice Department probe expected to criticize the Federal Bureau of Investigation and its handling of the case involving Democrat Hillary Clinton's private email server.
Trump's legal team has also argued that the president shouldn't have to answer any questions, even if Mueller issues a grand jury subpoena, citing Trump's executive authority.
"I don't recommend that this president or any subsequent president avail him or herself of this power". If they did, the presidency would function above and outside the law, counter to the very founding principles of our country - that we don't have a king. A president has never before pardoned himself.
Gaza militants fire rockets towards Israel
More than 115 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli army fire since they began in late March. None of Gaza's militant groups claim responsibility.
So the issue of whether a president can pardon themselves is matter of interpretation because no president has tried to do it.
