Impeached President Trump (IPT) wants to rule for life. Can Bolton stop him?

Impeached President Donald J. Trump dodged a constitutional legal bullet today when his senatorial enablers voted to excuse him for his criminal behavior, tossing aside articles of impeachment on abuse of power (48-52) and obstruction of Congress (47-53).
