    What is the rationale besides he's president and the process is too messy to replace the president?
    I believe that this is the issue around which this spate of sexual allegations will lose steam.
    Franken and other lesser mortals can be spared (i.e. removed from office) in order to bring this discomforting issue under control, but not the alpha male.
    This leaves women's position very, very slightly improved (for having had the conversation so public at all); leaves the biological privilege of sexual predation or initiation to the male, where most men and more than a few women are most comfortable; manages to move this conversation off center stage which everyone except the pure radicals wants and leaves the president reestablished as above the law.
    Does anyone else remember when Nixon said: "If the president
    does it, it's legal."
    And my very favorite: does anyone else remember when Nixon said that (I paraphrase) "The country cannot survive the trauma of removing the Vice-president (Agnew) from office"?

    There are more serious issues (from the perspective of his ability to govern) that should force Trump to resign, such as his solicitation, acceptance and payment of bribes.

    Okay. Then how about resigning because he's a liar, a swindler, and an
    obsessive narcissist who is ill-equipped and mentally unfit to do the job.

    Doug Jones is right. Trump should certainly not resign before the 2018 congressional elections.

    What is it about liberals that they don't understand what "alleged" means?

    Any Democrat with a strategic interest in victory should want Trump to be President in November next year.

    True. He should't resign, he should be resigned. With extreme prejudice.

    One question you ultra righters can't answer: Why does Trump hide his tax returns? It leads to questions about what the return will reveal, now we can only guess, payments made by Russians, corporations, whatever, perhaps hiding bribes. Till he releases the returns this \kind of speculation will never cease.

    The problem for Trump lovers is us libs may be right.

    A narcisstic sociopath non-reading president accepting bribes.
