I’ll Save you the Trouble of Wondering. It’ll Never Happen

Senators mull censuring Trump as an alternative to impeachment trial | Fox News

[Senator Tim] Kaine [(D-VA)] told reporters on Wednesday that censure could be an alternative to holding a trial that would divert precious Senate time from confirming President Biden’s Cabinet nominees and passing coronavirus pandemic vaccination funding and relief aid.

The problem is that this won’t appease the Democrats rabid base. And appeasing them is the only reason for the trial.  A failed trial will keep the base happy with the Democrats and angry at Republicans. A censure will make the base mad at the Democrats too.

So, don’t hold your breath. This has as much chance of success as I do of being the starting QB in a Super Bowl.
