    Let's get really weird and assume:

    Trump has new evidence submitted and he resigns before impeachment. Pence is now President

    Biden wins the Democratic nomination and defeats Pence in the popular vote and Electoral College by barely squeaking by.

    The House of Representative flips to Republican control and McCarthy is named Speaker of the House.

    The Senate remains in Republican hands with McConnell in charge.

    Now, wouldn't Biden be subject to impeachment in the House on day one of his administration for his actions in Ukraine, claiming that if the prosecutor was not removed, they would not get the billion dollar loan guarantee?

    The evidence is on tape and the Senate would be forced to remove him in a trial that could last one day. The Democrat VP would then become President.

    Sound plausible?

    The House could impeach Biden for any reasons they wanted, here are a few Articles of impeachment, that would tag Joe as "forever impeached":
    1. He's a gaff machine
    2. He has a crack-head son
    3. He has no idea where he is half the time
    4. He's a democrat
    5. He has never been right on foreign policy, not once
    6. He withheld $1b from Ukraine for 6 hours during their hot war with Russia
    7. He like to fondle kids, in a creepy way

    Republicans have the ability to investigate Biden right now.

    They aren’t. Doesn’t that strike you as odd?

    There's lot of wild leaps in your post. Foremost among them is the assumption that Trump would resign under any circumstances because there is no possible crime or wrongdoing that the republicans would not close ranks and defend him to the hilt.

    I think every president going forward will be impeached because of the bar democrats set.

    Exactly, whenever the House is controlled by one party, and the president is from the other party, there will be spite impeachments just for political advantage.

    It is practically impossible to impeach the president as long as they do everything through the proper established channels. Trump tried to conduct foreign policy at cross purposes to established policy and in spite of the state department.

    Impeachment will now be at the top of the list for every new president when the opposite party controls the house.
