Also, it is quite possible that he will face law suits resulting from the numerous lies that he has told and the insurrection that he recently caused.
If he wasn't aware before, he might be now. (The article I posted above points out that Trump may have stopped granting all pardons because he is having a temper tantrum when lawyers explained the risk to him.)
