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.

Trump successfully leveraged the racial resentment of President Obama and the social progress under him to build a rabid Coalition of The Spiteful that have come to revere Trump like he was Jesus. Actually, more than Jesus. They follow his commandments over the teachings of Jesus.
Relying on tv for his decision-making on personnel has gone so well, Trump will now use it to select military leaders. Trump stated, "I need a new general and I've watched this Gomer Pyle guy all of my life, I like the cut of his jib!"
