Default clean and convert imported curves

I'm importing construction curves from Illustrator for a building model.

I'm trying to remove all points between the corner points of a curve so that just the corner points remain.

The curve should also be converted to linear degree so that when I move a corner point the curve segments should remain straight and not bend.

I tried the Rebuild tool with the following options changed from their default setting:
Keep: CVs
Degree: Linear

This made the curve linear, but the curve points between the corner points remain and I have to remove them manually.

Using option "Keep: Ends" removes the points between the corners but distorts the shape of the curve!

Is there a way to convert to linear degree and automatically remove the points between the corners without distorting the shape of the curve?

Please see attached image.
