It actually might be his best option. If he resigns, Pence can pardon him of any federal crimes before he is charged, assuming he’s actually broken any and I am inclined to believe he’s broken a lot. Two things I’ve seen/thought about this. He has a hefty case pending in NY, Presidents cannot pardon state crimes. That still leaves a lot he can be pardoned for, but technically no federal cases Second, who’s to say Pence wants to pardon him? If Pence has any further aspirations in the GOP, he might want to distance himself from Trump ASAP, like others are doing.are pending. ~~I’m not sure you can “preemptively pardon” someone.~~Edit:
That’s basically what they do with everything else. Screw it up then blame it on the Democrats. Republicans could have a majority in all branches of government, cancel Christmas, blame it on Dems, then run for re-election on the single issue bringing back Christmas and you could bet that every single Conservative would give them their vote. Then, they would never actually bring it back, but just use it as an issue to run on, and somehow keep blaming the minority Dems for it, and keep getting elected. Kind of like they do with abortion. The GOP loves that abortion is legal, that single issue has given them SO much power.
