"I think the political ramifications would be tough", Giuliani told ABC's This Week. "No matter what it is".
"If he shot James Comey, he'd be impeached the next day". "If four of them are completely innocent and one of them is your assumption that it's a guilty motive, which (Trump) would deny, you can't possibly prosecute him".
"He has no intention of pardoning himself", Giuliani told ABC's "This Week", adding that the Constitution appears to allow it.
Numerous legal issues the president's team raised have little precedent, legal analysts said. In connection with this legal argument, the letter seems to argue several fallback positions, although they are presented in ways I found a bit hard to follow. "It is self-evidently wrong", Eisen said, according to MediaIte. "And in America, no one is above the law, including the president". "A president can under extreme circumstances be indicted, but we're facing extreme circumstances".
Donald Trump's lawyer has claimed the United States president "probably" has the power to pardon himself from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The memo argued that the Constitution gives Trump the power to "terminate [Mueller's] inquiry".
The legal team also points out that the investigation against Flynn proceeded unimpeded and resulted in an indictment, despite Trump's alleged comments. Last week, Trump said that was not the reason, but offered no other explanation.
Both Sekulow and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders claimed, falsely, that Trump had not dictated the statement, but had merely offered his son suggestions.

If Trump were served with a subpoena, legal analysts said they expect he would challenge it, and the dispute would nearly certainly escalate to the Supreme Court.
"In no case can he be subpoenaed or indicted", Giuliani told HuffPost.
The investigation led by Mr Mueller - previously appointed FBI director by former president George W Bush - has already led to criminal charges against Trump campaign aides, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort. "This is pure harassment, engineered by the Democrats".
The lawyers conclude the letter by offering to answer questions from Mueller in written form.
But according to what Giuliani told the Huffington Post on Sunday, it doesn't matter why Trump fired Comey, he can not be indicted for obstruction as long as he occupies the nation's chief executive job.
"Well, of course it would be appropriate to initiate a prosecution", he said. "But I don't think a President should pardon themselves".
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is sensitive to pulling "another Comey" as the Russian Federation probe enters its final months, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said in an interview Sunday. But, Giuliani added: " I'm a lawyer ... Could he self-pardon for "all prior federal crimes", including things like tax evasion, and continue doing so each morning for the rest of his tenure in office?
