Nope. The end of the Trump presidency will probably occur Jan 20, 2021. Congressional Repulbicans are much more partisan than they were in Nixon's day. There is very little that Trump could do that would get the 1/3 or so of the Senate Republicans votes needed to remove him from office. And without a credible threat of removal it is unlikely the Trump will vacate the office willingly. The best we can hope for is a massive blue wave this November that effectively neuters his adminstration and mires it in scandal investigations.

In the end there might be enough evidence against him to lock him up after he leaves office, but there is a good chance that his successor might prefer leniency as a move toward healing the divide rather than exacerbating the partisan wrangling that would result from further prosecution.
