If it were to happen I think the next POTUS would just cut Bush loose with a Presidential pardon anyway.



Zogby Poll: Americans Support Impeaching Bush for Wiretapping

The poll found that 52% agreed with the statement:

"If President Bush wiretapped American citizens without the approval of a judge, do you agree or disagree that Congress should consider holding him accountable through impeachment."

43% disagreed, and 6% said they didn't know or declined to answer. The poll has a +/- 2.9% margin of error.

Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.


U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 4, Clause 7.

Since impeachment does not impose criminal penalties nor guilt under the law, it is not subject to presidential pardon. Only if Bush were, after removal from office, indicted in a criminal court and convicted of a crime, would a pardon become possible.
