Unless the statute of limitation has kicked in. Then they may get away with breaking the law.
I wonder if there would be any sort of precedent about "normally we couldn't prosecute due to statute of limitations, but because Trump was untouchable while president, we will assume the 'clock had stopped' for those 4 years".)

Granted, it might be overturned by the Trump-friendly supreme court.
