'levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere,'

It would definitely not be for the good of the nation. We may never know the full extent of the laws he broke and he's hardly done causing pain and strife for this nation.

I would assume Trump agreed with that, elections have consequences.

exile him.

Strip him of all his possessions and send him off to some Pacific island. That one off Australia with all the snakes is a thought.

Capone was not convicted for murder, theft, prostitution, bootlegging or other similar crimes that he was probably guilty of, he went down over financial crimes. (tax evasion) The fingerprints and smoking gun will be found by accountants.
