21. That clause means the President can't cancel an impeachment...

If Congress for example were impeaching a Federal Judge the President couldn't cancel the impeachment
process by issuing the judge a pardon.

What some people have a question about is whether a President could pardon themself - the Nixon administration
even got the DOJ to issue an opinion on the matter - the opinion was no he can't, you can read it here: https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/files/olc/opinions/1974/08/31/op-olc-supp-v001-p0370_0.pdf .
