I doubt it. The impeachment did not cause any risk of jail time or other such punishment for Trump. Plus, the articles of impeachment do not always directly correspond to criminal code violations.

And even if they did, there are probably still plenty of other charges that Trump could be charged with that weren't related to the impeachment.
