Playing politics or upholding The Constitution?

I choose upholding The Constitution.

This is why I favor Impeachment.

1. Impeachment is an inherently political act.

One side will always consider it "playing politics".

From a 2017 Vox article re: Trump impeachment:

"There is no nonpartisan, apolitical mechanism to evaluate abuses of power and remove a president from office."

2. What other mechanism is available...

 

...to hold a lawless President accountable?

Are we going to just have to suffer 4 to 8 years of damage?
