And Congress won't impeach and convict this guy? WHY?

USA Code definition of treason: "Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."
See: https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?pat ... ion=prelim

Is there an aspect of this that doesn't apply to Trump?

Trump calls for delay to election (see link).
The faster you get rid of him, the better -he's dangerous.
However, whilst I'm not an expert on the US constitution, even if there's no election, I believe his term has to end on time in January ?

To the best of my knowledge, if the election is disputed and remains unresolved by January 20, then the Speaker of the House - that's Nancy Pelosi - will be sworn in as acting president until the dispute is resolved - most likely by the Supreme Court.

Trump is going to stoop to anything to try to remain president. I would greatly enjoy seeing him forcibly escorted from the White House and into the arms of the police waiting to arrest him. And while they're at it, arrest Ivanka and Kushner too. There are certainly plenty of grounds to send all three of them to jail. On visiting days I'm sure Kellyanne Conway and Sean Hannity will be happy to drop by.

His latest is an attempt to make the next round of stimulus payments higher than $1200. The amount is unspecified, but in my opinion he is actually trying to take advantage of the situation by using taxpayer money to, in part, essentially buy votes for himself.

None of Trump's attempts surprise me. I wish the Republicans would wise up enough to at least nominate someone else. Trump will only be the Republican nominee if the Republican convention votes him in as the nominee. If they are still going to support this incompetent madman, they might as well nominate Putin.

3 months and 2 days until the election . . .

I'm going to ask a question that may be very difficult, perhaps impossible, to answer. What is the single worst thing Trump has done - so far - as president?
