President Trump has reportedly asked his lawyers about the possibility of pardons for himself, his family and his inner circle as the investigation into his relationship with Russia deepens.
Trump’s legal team, which has experienced a shake up, has been speaking among themselves about the president’s power to pardon, according to The Washington Post (paywall).
The potential pardons are reportedly just an option and not seriously being considered at the moment.
“This is not in the context of, ‘I can’t wait to pardon myself,’ ” a close adviser told the paper.
Hmm, how did this guy become President?
