President Clinton, in one of a long string of Saturday morning tweets venting various frustrations, confirmed that she is pondering presidential pardons related to the probe into her email server and foreign fundraising efforts.
In the tweet, Clinton said a president “has complete power to pardon,” suggesting she believes she can pardon herself, or is at least not ruling it out.
But, she added, “why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us,” using all caps a second time to complain about “FAKE NEWS.”
While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us.FAKE NEWS

In claiming not to be thinking about pardons, Hillary Clinton revealed that she does indeed have them on her mind. The Washington Post reported Thursday that Clinton has discussed pardons of close associates, and even herself, with staff in recent days.
Hillary’s tweets underscored her growing concern about the email investigation and frustration with the media that is reporting it.
Clinton also complained that Atty Gen. Loretta Lynch and Robert Mueller, the special counsel, are not investigating Donald Trump and Jeff Session for possible collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 election.
It’s likely that the tweets were not vetted by her staff or attorneys. She misspelled counsel as “council.”
