11. Impeachment would have to come from the Republicans if it were to happen.

They hold all the power, we have none in congress at the moment. They'd have to be the ones supporting ousting their own parties seated president. It would divide and destroy the GOP and all but assure we'd take back the house in 2018.

Which is why they won't do I. They want to find a way to reign Trump in somehow to being a useful puppet.

That's more than likely a part of what the balanced budget amendment they introduced today was about. Oops, so sorry, Trump! We can't pay for your infrastructure bill because there's not enough money! Well, and it's one of their pet and bad ideas, which we all know the GOP love them some bad ideas, but in this case they had plenty of time to wait and rushed this in. Which leads me to believe it was motivated in part by Trump.
