One Sentence Re Why Trump Shouldn't Be Impeached or Forced To Resign Before the End of His Term In Office

Just as Ford pardoned Nixon, Pence will pardon Trump and we will be cheated out of the trial and conviction that has been a long time coming....

The 2020 election cycle must be a clean sweep for Democrats. Then, and only then, will it be possible to bring Trump to the bar of justice without any trepidation or concern for any attempts by Republicans to undo that which must be done....

Pence knows who POTUS is.

Pence worries about burning in hell. 

I would not be so sure of him helping to seal that fate.

Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body levels charges against a government official. It does not mean removal from office; it is only a statement of charges, akin to an indictment in criminal law. 

..

Let indictments of Trump et.al flow like Niagra shedding winter flood waters.  The House doesn't need to conclude its investigations, hearings and vote toward impeachment of Trump to send the matter to the Senate for conviction until it's absolutely clear no way in hell can it happen that Pence or his like can presidentially pardon  Trump before Trump has served time imprisoned or otherwise wholly restrained from tweeting or otherwise  feeding hatefulness with lies.

@Moki; Your quote re impeachment is accurate...

However,  my concern is that the process of impeachment could cause Trump to resign leaving Pence to issue a blanket pardon as Ford did for Nixon...

This is an outcome that is neither desirable or acceptable....

At the showdown at the Not-OK Corral today, VP Pence, the human q-tip, resembled nothing so much as a dime-store mannequin. The best that can be said of him is that he is Chauncey Gardner's dumber brother.

As for impeachment, that's too good for tRump; I favor a public hanging. tRump ought to be in favor of that – he certainly would get the best ratings of his sorry life.

Pence's performance today as Chuck and Nancy dismembered him and his Fawlty Towers hotel owner buddy smacked off, well, the ultimate wuss ever born much less elected. That said, he has pardon written all over that smirk of his.
