The Mueller Report came out on Thursday. My reading of the highlights is that there are sufficient grounds to start an impeachment or indictment process. Under the doctrine of innocent until proven guilty, being impeached or indicted does not mean the President is guilty: it is j’accuse by the courts or Congress.
But the threat of such actions now, or indictment only if the President is not re-elected, leaves many unanswered questions of how the President will respond during the rest of his first term.
Should Presidential candidates commit to pardon the President for any and all federal crimes if he were to agree to leave office shortly?
