Trump's lawyers argued in a letter to the special counsel that the president could not have obstructed the probe given the powers granted to him by the Constitution, the New York Timesreported on Saturday.
He stressed, though, that Trump had done nothing wrong.
Trump's team not only argues that he can pardon himself but also argues that he has unlimited power to investigate his enemies and end investigations into his friends.
Trump's lawyers and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders previously denied the president had dictated the statement and only offered suggestions.
Giuliani said. "That's another really interesting Constitutional argument...can the president pardon himself?" he mused.
"As only one of two people left who could become President, why wouldn't the Federal Bureau of Investigation or Department of "Justice" have told me that they were secretly investigating Paul Manafort (on charges that were 10 years old and had been previously dropped) during my campaign?" They also asserted that "he could, if he wished, terminate the inquiry, or even exercise his power to pardon if he so desired". That is because, they say, obstruction of justice "would amount to him obstructing himself" as the nation's chief law enforcement officer.
The 20-page letter was a response to repeated requests by Mueller's office asking to interview Trump.
Giuliani continued: "I think the political ramifications of that would be tough". I don't know where the President would go forward pardoning himself. The New York Times published the January 29 letter this weekend.
