19. Every "an impeached president loses XXX power" argument encourages "strategic" impeachments

You're correct that we have to eliminate this level of corruption, but the tool you're proposing will simply become a further tool of corruption.

Remember, the corruption that has enabled everything is the structural corruption of the Republican Party. Leave that intact and "an impeached president loses XXX power" becomes a tool to strip non-corrupt presidents of their abilities. Without their corrupt lockstep and propaganda, Trump would have been removed from office, possibly years ago (assuming he had squeaked out a victory in 2016 in the first place).
