trump resigns, Pence takes over and then pardons The buffoon. Shades of Ford/Nixon
Even better: Trump resigns thinking Pence pardons him, but Pence doesn't!
Doubtful though that any verdict would be reached before the next election. I wonder if the Justice Department would allow any charges to be made public, much less allow a sitting President to even be charged. Imagine if anything like that happened a few days or weeks out from election day?
