There are other ways besides an impeachment conviction to hold Trump accountable and to address the underlying problems.

One would be a censure of Trump with real legislative teeth behind it, perhaps in conjunction with section 3 of the 14th Amendment (which would prevent him from running for office again). This would only require the 5-6 Republicans who are willing to convict regarding impeachment to vote to censure Trump in a serious, meaningful way.

This strategy is actually politically possible and I am continually updating it as events evolve in The War After the Election [] and a short six paragraph link at the end of it which explains the very targeted, but critical legislation that could be attached to a censure.
