So however Trump is removed from office - by 25th or by impeachment - or resignation

Pence can pardon him.

I don't want to see him pardoned.

1. its not a given Pence would.

especially if the senate convict. Pence will have enough political cover to not pardon.

4. If he is impeached (indicted) and convicted by the Senate,

and then they vote to prevent him from ever holding any office in the future, I don't think Pence's pardon could reverse that last vote.

6. True enough

I'd say the odds are highest of a pardon in the resignation scenario and that the odds of no pardon are still higher than the odds of conviction happening were at the time of the first impeachment.

If there is a pardon...well, not hitting Trump for his federal crimes would be infuriating, but it means that the state crimes are what hits Trump, which is probably better for letting Democrats focus on the needs of the country without distraction. So it would at least have a silver lining.

I want the scholars of DU to prove me wrong.
