7. Great points

It does not permanently remove the President from office. Every 30 days or so the elected President (Trump) can petition Congress to continue his powers as President.

It is like The Walking Dead version of impeachment. Two-thirds of both Houses of Congress would have to continue to sustain it.

An interesting question would be a brain dead or a President in a coma without a Living Will. I don't think that the President could be removed in that case unless the Court declares something like a power of attorney (or perhaps spouse) who then offers a resignation letter on behalf of the person.
