Trump tweet storm: ‘Only crime so far is leaks against us’
As the probe into his administration’s alleged ties to Russia continues, US President Donald Trump has said that although he has the power to grant pardons, so far, the only crimes which have been committed are the leaks against his government.
The president lashed out at the media in a series of tweets on Saturday.
Earlier, the Washington Post reported that Trump had asked his advisers about his powers to pardon himself as well as his aides and family members in the ongoing Russia investigation, according to White House sources, although one of them said this was more in the context of curiosity over the scope of the investigation’s powers rather than an attempt to avoid prosecution.
