Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, Senator Rand Paul weighed in on the topic of President Trump potentially pardoning his family, his aides and even himself under the U.S. Constitution.

“I think, in all likelihood, he does,” Paul said during the interview, adding “I think that some of this hasn’t been adjudicated.”

Paul warned the President against following such a course of action.

“I think in a political sphere, I would caution someone to think about pardoning themselves or family members or et cetera,” said Paul.

The Washington Post reported last week that the President’s legal team is looking into the pardon authority in relation to the ongoing situation with the Russia collusion conspiracy theory.

However, Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow told ABC News that the issue has never even been discussed.

“The issue of pardons is not on the table. There’s nothing to pardon from,” Sekulow said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week”.

“We’re not researching it, I haven’t researched it because it’s not an issue were concerned with or dealing with.” he added.
