Impeachment is a necessary tool to prevent a corrupt autocrat who wields power over the country, from taking even worse actions in the future, whether it's Trump or a future president. If there are no boundaries now, there may not be any left in the future when they're even more desperately needed.
Wearing Ivanka's bra, Trump frantically ran through the White House screaming "Traitor!" at a painting of Abraham Lincoln and yelled "You stole my fries!" at a painting of William Howard Taft.

This looks more like the last stage of a coup. Consolidating power in himself by stacking the courts as his puppets, discrediting belief in the truth by attacking the press as fake and rigging elections with voter suppression. Spreading propaganda and lies while facilitating Russian-aided disinformation on social media. Trying to shut down the postal service which means shutting down voting by mail. Lastly, raising a fascist, well armed militia to stand against his political enemies. The threat to our democracy couldn't be more urgent.
No one ever believed that these dishonorable Senate Republicans would allow a fair trial. And they were right.
