"While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us".

"Look, I have not had a conversation with the President or any member of his team regarding his desire to pardon anybody", Lewandowski said on MSNBC.

"FAKE NEWS", Trump tweeted on Saturday. "There is nothing to pardon", Sekulow said.

"The issue of pardons is not on the table".

It is hard to know how extensive Trump's pardoning powers are, because never before has there been discussion of a President pardoning himself and family members who work with him in the White House.

According to the Post report, Mr. Trump has inquired about the authority he has as president to pardon aides, relatives or even himself.

Democrats did not escape Trump's twitter rantings as he turned his attention for a moment to the ongoing investigation into Russian Federation meddling in the presidential election. Donald Trump Jr. and former campaign Chairman Paul Manafort are discussing undergoing a private interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee. Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican, and top Democrat, Sen.

After the failure of the Republicans' second attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Trump said that GOP lawmakers should repeal the reform even if they have no alternative plan to replace it, but the White House insisted that Trump preferred to have both things accomplished at the same time.

Trump's popular tweet has been liked more than 57,000 times - and has been retweeted almost 16,000 times in two hours.

Mr. Trump's eldest son has become a focus of the investigation after it was revealed that he, Mr. Kushner and Mr. Manafort met with Russian representatives at Trump Tower in June 2016.

The tweet blaming Republicans for his woes has gained President Trump more likes on Twitter than his previous tweet about the "Russian Witch Hunt", which only received approximately 38,000 likes compared to the almost 60,000 likes that the tweet blaming Republicans received.
