Asked by a reporter Wednesday if President Donald Trump has the power to pardon himself, House Speaker Paul Ryan answers, 'Obviously the answer is he shouldn't, and no one is above the law'. "And he has no need to do it, he's done nothing wrong".
He raised eyebrows on Monday when he stated his belief that he had the "absolute right" to pardon himself, but said he wouldn't do so because he had "done nothing wrong".
"This morning, the president tweeted that he "has the absolute right to pardon himself" and that "the appointment of the special counsel is totally unconstitutional".
He made it clear Trump's legal team would combat any effort to force the president to testify in front of a grand jury.
In a letter to Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating the Russian Federation meddling, the president's lawyers argued in January that Trump "could, if he wished, terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon if he so desired". No court has ruled on the issue, and the Justice Department opinion from 1974 said the president can not pardon himself. "The president has not done anything wrong", she said. "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", Giuliani told ABC news.
The pardon for Johnson could come as early as Tuesday, and the paperwork was being finalized Tuesday morning, according to a person familiar with the discussions.

Trump's lawyers have been negotiating with Mueller since the end of 2017 over terms of an interview.
"That's what I mean by begging for it", Giuliani said.
Mueller's team is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, as well as whether Trump tried to obstruct the FBI's investigation of his campaign, including when he fired former FBI Director James Comey. "He should not pardon himself and there's no evidence at all that the Federal Bureau of Investigation put a spy in the Trump campaign".
Trump's team has requested a briefing about the informant, but Giuliani said Sunday that the president would not order the Justice Department to comply because it would negatively affect public opinion.
"President Trump didn't take that".
"For every one of these things he did, we can write out five reasons why he did it", Giuliani said.
"It seems like it would be a completely wrong assumption".
Trump has taken an aggressive stance on his presidential powers in the probe, which he calls an unconstitutional "witch hunt".
Bharara, who was appointed by former president Barack Obama, told CNN that for a president to pardon himself would be "outrageous".
"Comey worked for me in the US Attorney's office, and Mueller worked under me in the Justice Department". And they're going around starting all these new investigations.
"President Trump, you went 0 for 2 on the Constitution this morning", Schumer said on the Senate floor on Monday afternoon.
