135. "Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it."
Looking forward, not back, a la Ford's pardon of Nixon and the Iran Contra excuse for a holding to account has helped a lot of ordinary Americans to lose their lives in wars of aggression. Setting that standard for accountability (lack thereof) has led to our current national emergency.

We are in extremis, and ordinary Americans are suffering at every level. But sweeping yet another era of crimes against the Constitution under the rug will not do. It will not accomplish what you desire. It will lead to some future Clever American, et al. to have to live through yet another nightmare like the one we are currently enduring.

I don't claim to have an answer. But impeachment would get the crimes of this administration on the public record, whether or not the Senate has the balls to take action -- which action would involve many members of Congress and which is the reason "that sick web" will likely be consigned to some dark place.

Nancy Pelosi asserted she was going to move on, do something that actually helps ordinary Americans, in lieu of impeachment. We see what she has done. A nod to minimum wage, while continuing to fund an illegal occupation, making her complicit with Bushco.

A wound must be cleaned before healing can occur. The Constitutional remedy for a rogue President and members of his administration is impeachment!
