5. I'm not sure it is as simple as this..much has been debated about

would a presidential pardon be considered obstruction of justice..not saying this is THE final word..just an opening for debate - beyond my pay grade...and then, there is the person losing their 5th amendment protection....

If a president were to issue pardons in order to block an investigation for a wrongful purpose—like a president protecting himself because he believed that someone who was pardoned would disclose incriminating evidence against that president—that would constitute obstruction of justice.
