Trump Jr.'s legal team adds another lawyer

And in at a real estate conference in 2008, Trump Jr. himself said, "Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets".

"He called me from Air Force One", said Scaramucci.

The U.S. intelligence community stated definitively in January that Russian Federation was behind attempts to hack Democratic Party emails and influence the election in Trump's favor.

Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS, a research firm hired by Trump political opponents to investigate the GOP nominee's Russian Federation ties, was also invited to next week's hearing, but declined, according to the statement from Grassley's office.

"He basically said to me, 'Hey you know, this is, maybe they did it, maybe they didn't do it, '" Scaramucci said.

Lawmakers announced a bipartisan deal Saturday to sanction Russian Federation for its meddling in the election. And in specifying that the power applies "for offences against the United States", it means that presidents can not issue pardons for violations of state law.

While some lawyers told Nixon that he might pardon himself, the head of The Office of Legal Counsel, Mary Lawton, wrote the authoritative memo to Nixon: "Under the fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case, the President can not pardon himself". "He says he brought that up, but he doesn't have to be pardoned, there's nobody around him that has to be pardoned". Many of us do/did not realize that the presidential pardoning power "extends to every offence known to the law", other than impeachment, "and may be exercised at any time after its commission, either before legal proceedings are taken, or during their pendency, or after conviction and judgment". Some experts argued the Constitution doesn't allow the president to pardon himself.

A senior member of Trump's personal legal team, Jay Sekulow, made a similar assertion.

But he said that was irrelevant.

Nothing said in the Convention affords the conclusion that the president might pardon himself, an act of grotesque proportions that would subvert the republic.
