I’m not sure that anything the President signed at this point would be worth much. She’s in so much trouble that a pardon from her isn’t going to be worth the paper it was written on.

IRL, the power to pardon is absolute. Conceivably, a president could be prosecuted if they, oh, let's say sold a pardon to a group of terrorists for a campaign contribution to his wife, but that wouldn't undo the pardon.

So, if she got it in before she resigned it would hold and if she then was found guilty of the crimes she committed, the pardon would hold? Thanks for answering, just something I’m not familiar with and love learning.
