120. Do you advocate removing impeachment from the Constitution? Yes.
After the electoral college is abolished and the people directly elect their president then only the people by referendum should remove him or her.

Impeachment presently involves "any official of the United States" but there could be other ways to "remove" malefactors in office.

Involving the partisan Congress in the process is unacceptable. Involving the media and the fringies therein is dangerous.

Inoperative Constitution? Mostly so. I advocate, but with great reluctance, a Second Constitutional Convention.

That's a whole other elephant in the room.
