1. I am waiting for him to pardon every KKK and white supremacist in

the prisons. The ones who have the most violent and disgusting crimes. I would not put it past him.

2. Sort of

 

He is able to pardon people for federal crimes, but not state crimes. So states could come at people who are pardoned.

There is very serious doubt he could pardon himself, although he could try to claim he did.

In the end, impeachment is a remedy.

And if not impeachment, then voting out the politicians who refused to impeach him.

3. The power of the pardon

is the very most unchecked privilege of the Executive branch. Some of the Founding Fathers were very much against it, foreseeing its application by a tyrant.
