There has been speculation that Trump would step down early so that Pence could pardon him. It should be noted, though, that such a pardon would apply only to federal crimes. It would not affect his legal jeopardy for crimes against the State of New York.

As for the possibility of Biden issuing a pardon, I believe he has already pledged not to interfere with prosecution.
