I, too, would go the practical route. If it were early in Trump’s second term I’d be all for impeachment. But right now all the positives are on the side of letting him be voted out of office. Moreover, impeachment is a long, cumbersome process that is only going to lead to more trouble, and, if Trump has his way, bloodshed. All the nation’s rabble are spoiling for a bloody, physical fight, no use handing it to them on a silver platter.
