True or False; President Trump fears losing the election because there will be no one to pardon him when he faces the NYSD charges?

I think that Trump probably is afraid of losing the legal shield which comes with being president. The Mueller report essentially all but said that he had committed obstruction of justice and an open letter signed by IIRC a couple hundred former US Attorneys said that if anyone else had done what Trump did they'd be up on obstruction charges. There's other criminal acts which Trump may be implicated in as well, such as the hush money payments he made to a porn star with whom he'd had an affair. That already resulted in a criminal conviction for his lawyer, Michael Cohen. Trump may have escaped charges because he's the president.
If Trump loses the election he could end up charged with crimes.

True. He's afraid of losing power like all dictators are. It wouldn't be long before he's brought up on criminal charges; he won't be able to hide behind the office of President.

TRUE. He knows he's going to slide on impeachment charges. But the Democrats see their job as being to get the truth out there, to the voters, who will ultimately decide Trump's real fate.
Trump's election was a fluke, based on tiny majorities in three purple states. He's alienated at least as many independents and moderates as voted in those states. He's polling well behind ALL of the leading Democratic candidates, and something like 50% of American voters have said they'd never vote for him under any circumstances. Face it, the guy is in serious trouble.

Nope. He is afraid of losing since once he is no longer a sitting President he can be tried for fraud by NY state. And then only Andrew Cuomo could pardon him.
