profiting from corruption

Call me naive, but in this year of Late Capitalism 2017, with so many ways to embrace and profit from legal corruption, it really amazes me that people go to all this trouble to attain messy, dangerous, international racketeering and treason levels of corruption.

Ok I have a serious question: if an investigation does happen and does find that Russia somehow messed with the election and Trump gets removed, would Pence also have to be removed because he profited from the same corruption/Russian infiltration or would he become president??
