What Will House Republicans Do If Trump Pardons Himself?

Washington (News Service) – A couple of days before the former American President Milhous Nixon resigned in 1974 the Justice Department told 37th president that he was unable to pardon himself. Three days back the ongoing U.S. President wrote a tweet that he knew better.

As it packs the power to challenge the president, Congress might be the ultimate balustrade if Donald Trump did not reprieve himself- said the U.S Constitution that the president that the authority has the complete power to pardon “except in cases of impeachment”.

Post the tweet of the U.S president Donald Trump, where the challenges would begin. While a simple question was put before the question: If the president pardoned himself, would they back impeachment?

The answer did not pack too many positive vibes. However, one of the Republicans said that he would brace upon impeachment if the president pardoned himself.

“I don’t wanna talk about hypotheticals,”- said Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas). The house of Conaway controls the House of Intelligence Committee’s Investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with the government of Russia however at the verdict it would affirm that it would not.

Newt Gingrich the former House speaker said that the response from Congress would have a “devasting” effect if the U.S President pardoned himself.

“If a president was dumb enough to pardon himself, that would be such an arrogant statement of power that the House would probably impeach him in a week and the Senate would convict him,”

On Thursday the president’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that the president was not intending to pardon himself.

“I guarantee it’s not going to happen,” Giuliani said. “I give you my word and the president’s word.”- said Rudy Guilini.

It is more likely that the special counsel that has previously formally accused a wide range of campaign associated would accuse Trump.
