A German newspaper editor called "murder in the White House" an easier way to stop the "Trump catastrophe" as opposed to impeachment in Congress, according to The Daily Caller's translation of a German TV show.
German weekly Die Zeit editor-publisher Josef Joffe's remark came in response to an impeachment question to the TV program's panel.
"There has to be a qualified two-thirds majority of the Senate in order for a removal of office to take place," a female "ARD-Presseclub" panelist responded, per The Daily Caller. "These are politically and legally pretty high hurdles, a lot would have to happen for it.
"We're far away from that."
Joffe offered, according to the translation: "Murder in the White House, for example."
Joffe's pre-inauguration op-ed in The Guardian was titled: "Trump has bared his fangs to Merkel. He will do untold damage to Europe."
"Does this sound like a remake of the 1920s and 1930s?" Joffe wrote. "It does – 100 years later. The first world war ended Globalization 1.0, circa 1850 to 1914. Trump promises to bring down Globalization 2.0, born in the 1970s."
