With the US House of Representatives introducing Articles of Impeachment against President Trump for the events at the Capitol last week, many are wondering just what effect his removal would have on the statutory pensions, protections, and other awards given by the United States to its former presidents.

But like seemingly every other question raised this year, the answer is...complex.

It's fair to say that neither the Founders nor any prior Congress saw events playing out exactly as they are...in Virtual Legality.
