13. that isn't true.. it's NOT what the constitution says...

The constitution says a pardon can't protect someone from impeachment. It has nothing to do with limiting any powers of the potus until he is convicted.

They aren't related.

Here's what it says:

Article II, Section 2 provides:

[The President] ... shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.

That means if someone, like a federal judge, is being impeached on the basis of a crime, a pardon for that crime does not impact impeachment.

The potus still has their full powers until conviction.
