hi everyone,
im having a lot of trouble trying to translate the following:

they [the Directory] wanted to remove Napoleon from the possibility of seizing power.

'il a voulu d'importer??? Napoleon de la possibilité de s'emparer du pouvoir'

i have a feeling this is terribly wrong. Please help!!

thanks everyone.

    I suppose the context is sending N. to St Helena?
    Le Directoire voulait retirer à N. toute possibilité de (re)prendre le pouvoir
    ou
    Le Directoire voulait envoyer N. suffisamment loin pour lui retirer toute possibilité de (re)prendre le pouvoir :)
