The White House on Monday said President Trump is not above the law, despite his assertion he has the power to pardon himself to avoid punishment in the Russia probe.
“Certainly, no one is above the law,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at her daily press briefing.
The spokesperson reiterated the president’s belief he would not need to use a pardon on himself because he did not commit a crime.
“Thankfully, the president hasn’t done anything wrong and wouldn’t have any need for a pardon,” she said.
