(THREAD) A Look at What Happens if Pence is Indicted or Resigns Prior to Trump.

Right now many Americans are worried about the possibility of Trump resigning right before his term is up, and Mike Pence pardoning him of federal crimes.
Nobody seems to mention what happens if Pence was to resign prior to Trump getting impeached & convicted or reigns himself.

Lets pretend that Pence is implicated in the Mueller probe, either criminally or to a point where it's clear he should not be President or Vice President.
If Pence resigns, or is forced out of office via other means, Trump's hope of a pardon is GONE.

Yes he could try to nominate a new VP who would pardon him, but according to the 25th Amendment, the nominee would have to be confirmed by both the House and the Senate.
Democrats will control the House meaning that unless they get an assurance that a pardon won't be provided, they likely will NOT confirm any VP nominee.
This would mean that if Trump is impeached/convicted or resigns, after Pence was to eave office, the Democrat Speaker of the House would likely become President.
