There is little doubt that the president has committed offenses that warrant impeachment. However, what would be the gain? The thinking is that, if impeached, he would never be able to again run for office. Really. Hey folks, if after watching this guy’s antics for the past four years, the majority of Americans would vote to put him back in office, then many of us should be moving to a Greek Island.

Donald Trump is like any other celebrity, he loves the publicity. He doesn’t care if it’s good or bad, just keep me on the front page.

So why feed into his ego with an impeachment trial and take the chance that he could win. I am reminded of Jan Van Eyck’s painting ‘The Last Judgement’ with demons pulling sinners down into hell. In Donald Trump’s case, it won’t be demons but creditors. It’s time to take his name off the front page and let the vultures feast.

Mr. Howard, in case you've forgotten, we’ve already had an impeachment hoax so another is not needed. BTW, Trump will get publicity for the rest of our lives.

It might be a mistake to move forward with impeachment for the purpose of prohibiting Donald Trump from holding another federal office. If he is ineligible to run for president, a Republican candidate could surface in 2024 with an ability to unite dyed-in-the-wool Trump Republicans, other Republicans, and a large share of independents. That candidate could be a more formidable foe than Donald Trump four years from now.
