If Donald Trump is charged with and convicted of a serious crime, which is allowed under the Constitution after the impeachment trial is concluded one way or another, how about banishment, a legal punishment?

England used it often (it was known as “transportation”), and Napoleon was banished/exiled twice. The devil is in the details, of course, but the idea may have merit.
