WASHINGTON, D.C. – A cloud of investigation into collusion with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election, whether just or unjust, continues to follow and cover Donald. J. Trump’s presidency.
Trump’s stance has remained firm throughout the investigation. He has maintained if there was collusion during the election, it was not on his campaign’s part, but by the other major political party in the U.S.
Regardless, the investigation ensues.
On Monday morning Trump released a tweet saying he has “the absolute right to pardon” himself but reinstated he has done nothing wrong.
As has been stated by numerous legal scholars, I have the absolute right to PARDON myself, but why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong? In the meantime, the never ending Witch Hunt, led by 13 very Angry and Conflicted Democrats (& others) continues into the mid-terms!

Trumps attorney, former New York City mayor, Rudy Guiliani, said in a TV interview Trump pardoning himself would be unthinkable and said president Trump will not pardon himself because he is innocent.
