Speculation surrounding President Donald Trump's motive to pardon Scooter Libby continues, as the special counsel probe could put some of Trump's allies in the hot seat.
But if Trump did pardon Libby to send a political message, former US attorney Preet Bharara that he thought that would be "kind of abusive."
"It's true that the pardon power is something that the President can exercise in any way shape or form pretty much he wants," Bharara said on CNN's "State of the Union." "But it's kind of abusive, I think, if you're using it to send a political message to people who may be in a position to testify against you."
