Part of the investigation includes whether Trump tried to obstruct justice in the federal probe of Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 USA presidential election.
Laywer Elura Nanos, writing for Law & Crime, said a pardon would be "too much for" Trump's presidency to bear.
"He has no intention of pardoning himself", Giuliani said.
The tweet capped a flurry of missives Trump made on social media on Monday as he marked his 500 days in office by recapping what he said were successes on the economy, job creation and health care.
