4. Sen. Kaine is the one who floated this, not a Republican

 

But it's a stupid idea and can't be done - and no one should want it to be done.

3. A censure CANNOT keep a president from holding future office

 

The Constitution gives Congress ONE and only one way to stop a president from holding future office and that's through disqualification pursuant to impeachment.

Kaine is in outerspace on this one.
