When ABC'sGeorge Stephanopoulos asked Giuliani whether Trump could pardon himself, the former prosecutor - who was not on Trump's legal team when the letter was written - laughed and then said probably so.
"He's not, but he probably does. If the president were to pardon himself, he'll get impeached". It would be an open question.

"Pardoning other people is one thing". Indeed, he could "terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon" himself at any time "if he so desired".
