5. I suppose not explicitly forbidden

 

The Constitution doesn't explicitly forbid the president pardoning himself. However, IMHO, it strongly implies the president cannot pardon himself because it makes an explicit exception to pardons in cases of impeachment (meaning the president can't save himself).
