It continues to go on because the present administration is busy removing from power as many people as possible whose job it is to operate the governmental mechanisms intended to remove such people from office before they do irreparable damage to the country's principles of government, in favor of people who will not seek to do so. That itself has mechanisms in place to prevent such actions, but those are almost impossible to invoke without the assent of a Congress in which both houses are currently controlled by the party under whose name the sitting president appeared on the ballot.

It's going to have to wait until the stench from the present administration's activities becomes so foul that representatives and senators who continue to block such actions in the name of party unity decide that their own political careers are threatened unless they act. Until then. the president is sitting, and cannot be removed from office other than by those mechanisms (or another mechanism which has occasionally been used in our history, but which I would never wish upon anyone). He may be a political walking dead person, but too much of the country apparently doesn't mind being ruled by a zombie, as long as he keeps them entertained and doesn't threaten them.

Hmmmmm... I wonder whether anyone is thinking of starting to circulate recall petitions against the congresspeople who are enabling obstruction of these mechanisms, on the grounds that they are failing to perform their duty to the nation by not holding members of the executive branch accountable for actions which are immediately damaging to the republic? Even a few of those might light enough of a fire to cause some action.
