Giuliani Now Says Mueller's Team Trying to Frame Trump

In secret memo to Mueller Trump’s lawyers said presidential powers preclude possibility of obstruction

On Mr Trump's ability to pardon himself, Mr Giuliani said: "The law of the United States is that the president of the United States has unlimited, unreviewable power to pardon people from federal crimes even before they are convicted".

"In the meantime, the never-ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!"

'The appointment of the Special Counsel is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL, ' Trump said in another post. "He's got to have the discipline to put a stop to it, or we're going to have to do everything we can, including some things that I don't think we'd want to talk about right now, to try to, to try to appeal to have it stopped", he said. An attorney for President Donald Trump is playing down the possibility that Trump would try to - if it came to that.

Over the weekend, the New York Times released a 20-page letter from Trump's lawyers to Mueller's team laying out a variety of legal arguments against the probe, including the claim that Trump can not obstruct justice because he is constitutionally empowered to "terminate the inquiry".

"I'm not aware of anything in the text of the Constitution or the original understanding of the Constitution that would preclude the president from using this power", Lee said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Wednesday that President Donald Trump shouldn't pardon himself.

The comments came as Mueller's investigation, which includes possible illegal obstruction of the Russian Federation probe by the president, entered its second year.

Lindsey Graham, the senator from SC who was one of the House managers during the impeachment proceedings against former president Bill Clinton, advised the president and other relevant people not to "obstruct justice", the report added.

He also insisted Trump's lawyers be able to view the "authorization" Mueller was given to conduct his investigation.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani made that point Sunday on ABC News' "This Week".

"It would have been helpful if we got this information earlier", he added.

A California man who pleaded guilty in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation should have a sentencing date set by the end of this month.

But Trump would imperil himself if he agreed to testify because he'd be in danger of contradicting himself in his answers to investigators, Giuliani noted. "I'm very, very disappointed in Comey", Giuliani said.

Under the constitution, a president can be impeached by the House of Representatives and then removed from office by the Senate.

Trump's legal team has long pushed the special counsel to narrow the scope of its interview.
