10. As I recall they got him for taking bribes & tax for fixing milk prices
when he was Gov of Maryland. He pleaded nolo contendere (not quite a guilty plea but basically the same effect) and resigned.

9. Yes he can be impeached
and a President can not pardon anyone who has been impeached.

16. Well that's not exactly true as stated

What it means is that the Impeachment itself is not reversible by a pardon. It is a strictly legislative act not subject to Executive or Judicial review. And the impeachment itself carries no penalty other than the removal from office.

Any subsequent or additional criminal judgments of the individual impeached could be subject to a pardon.
