Here is the Daily Briefing for Monday, June 4, where we round up the day's biggest headlines for your perusal. Take a look.


Does Trump Have the Right to Pardon Himself?

President Trump is vehemently insisting that he has the right to pardon himself if need be. But he insists that he hasn’t committed any crime, so there is no need to do so. The debate stems from The New York Times which published a January letter over the weekend from the president’s legal team that opened the door to Trump shutting down the obstruction investigation into him or even pardoning himself. In an interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Giuliani said he probably does have the power to issue himself a pardon.
