"President Donald Trump could face a wave of legal challenges now that he’s lost the 2020 election and will soon lose the presidential immunity he’s enjoyed for the past four years.
Trouble likely awaits him from multiple places: federal- and state-level investigations, criminal and civil inquiries, and matters involving his businesses, political operations, and tenure as president.
Trump could take perhaps the most dramatic step there is to avoid legal peril: He could try to pardon himself, or he could resign during the lame-duck period and order his replacement, Mike Pence, to preemptively pardon him.
There’s some precedent for such a move. President Gerald Ford sparked controversy in 1974 when he preemptively pardoned Richard Nixon, who had recently resigned from the White House in the aftermath of the Watergate scandal.
But such gambits wouldn’t inoculate Trump and his closest allies from fines and even jail time from any state-level challenges where a presidential pardon has no effect."
