    US presidents signing laws whilst being impeached

    If a president signed a law into being whilst under impeachment does it become null and void if found guilty of said impeachment? Or does that law stand regardless?

    It would still stand, as the laws were written by Congress. Executive Orders would likely stand as well, unless they were connected to the reason for being impeached. Then there would be reason to pressure the next president to undo them.

    What I would really like is once he is out, bring out all the evidence that he is Putin's lackey and convict him of treason. Then use that as reason to recall every single political appointment he has made, every judiciary appointment, including the supreme court!
