48. No one really knows, since we've never removed a president by impeachment before

This is what I see happening: Congress will impeach him on a LOT of crimes. They'll find him guilty on all of them and kick his ass to the curb. (I know a lot of people believe the Republican Senate will protect him, but after all the evidence is laid out no Senator of either party will want to go on record as standing behind an un-American eighthwit that makes Nixon look honest. So, if a bill of impeachment makes it to the Senate he'll be sent home in disgrace - preferably on a Greyhound bus with cardboard taped over the windows.) At that point, Congress has eliminated the possibility of him ever receiving a pardon for his actions.

Trump's biggest worry: he committed a LOT of state-level crimes. Most of them were committed in New York. Pence couldn't pardon those even if he wanted to. The governor of New York really hates him, and any "jury of his peers" convened in New York would be sure to give him a mild punishment... "what do you mean, burning him at the stake is cruel and unusual punishment? We promise to hit him in the head with a three-pound sledgehammer before we light the gasoline so it won't be cruel, and after we do the same thing to the rest of the Trump Organization it won't be unusual either. But just to make you happy, we'll throw him in Sing Sing until five years after he dies."
