The U.S. dollar extended declines to a near one-year low on foreign exchange markets after reports indicated that Donald Trump's legal team may look at ways to allow the President to pardon himself amid ongoing probes into Russia's election meddling.

The New York Times and the Washington Post reported that Trump's team is "scouring" the personal and professional backgrounds of investigators working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller in an effort to thwart his expanding probe into alleged links between Russia and the President's business empire. The Post cited sources that said Trump has asked his advisers "about his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with the probe."
