Possibility of Trump pardoning himself sparks GOP pushback
New talk of President Trump possibly pardoning himself drew pushback from Republicans on the Sunday show circuit this week.
Both congressional Republicans and the president's attorney Rudy Giuliani urged caution that a self-issued pardon could be politically problematic for Trump.
But Giuliani said the president "probably" has the power to give himself a pardon even though doing so would prove to be difficult.
"I think the political ramifications of that would be tough. Pardoning other people is one thing. Pardoning yourself is another," Giuliani told ABC's "This Week."
"Other presidents have pardoned people in circumstances like this, both in their administration and sometimes the next president, even of a different party will come along and pardon," he continued.
On NBC's "Meet the Press," Giuliani went even further, saying that such a move "would just be unthinkable, and it would lead to probably an immediate impeachment."...................
