Is Trump's goading Pelosi and the House for impeachment part of a larger plan?

What if Trumpís behavior is part of his plan to avoid state and federal charges once he leaves office or is forced out of office?

If forced out of office under the 25th Amendment will Trumpís lawyers, relying on Trumpís removal from the Presidency under the 25th Amendment, claim that his removal provides prima facie evidence that he is incompetent to stand trial on any state or federal charges?

If forced out of office by impeachment (big IF) will the plethora of news articles since his election diagnosing Trumpís mental health be proffered by Trumpís lawyers as prima facie evidence that he is incompetent to stand trial on any state or federal charges?

Under either scenario he gets a pardon, keeps his presidential pension and security detail, and does not have to stand for trial on any state and federal charges. (Yes, his assets are still at risk and his kids are still subject to trial(s), but when has he worried about anyone but himself?)

(If this is posted under wrong forum, sorry, it's not my fault. My only option was GD.)

1. I wouldn't worry.

 

His cabinet and lap dogs in the legislature won't desert him--not enough anyway.
