Republicans in Congress should (but won’t) use the 14th amendment to prevent Trump from being president again

This column is naive. Near the end it states:

 “Congress, led by Republicans willing to break with their party’s extremists, should bring the Jan. 6 tragedy to a close…”

Does anyone really think Republicans would do this? Look what happened to Kinzinger and Cheney. The gutless Republicans in Congress are not going to go against their Trump cult base. Sure, using the 14th amendment to prevent Trump from running is a good idea but it’s not going to be done by Congress once Republicans take over the House. The base doesn’t think Trump led an insurrection – they think he won.

Criminal prosecution of Trump is the only option. It won’t divide the country more than it is already.
