You have no respect whatsoever for our Constitution, do you? You aren't even aware that you misquoted and egregiously misinterpreted the impeachment clause in Article II, Section 4, US Constitution. If, as you so foolishly present it, there are no limits "to what a crime is or isn’t" for launching the impeachment process, then the bar will be so low that every future president will be subject to impeachment for nothing more than being ticketed for running a red light. IOW, you have lowered the standards for prosecuting an impeachment of the highest officer in the nation to that of fining a drunk jaywalker.
If these are the rules, jack, then Republicans will not be whining next time a "democrat" becomes POTUS, they will impeach the sucker for farting in a crowded room.
Every president in our history has, to one degree or other, abused his power and obstructed congress. These are the charges brought against our president, they are ill-defined, unsupported with facts, devoid of reason, and would never be admissible in a normal court of law.
Back in 1787, during the Constitutional Convention, one of the most hotly debated issues was the removal of federal government officials through the impeachment process. The removal of a president (and other certain officers) was not a trivial matter. Two Virginians, George Mason and James Madison, had a rather intense debate over what should constitute grounds for removing a president from office.
Treason and Bribery were a given, and Mason proposed adding the idea of "maladministration". Madison immediately pointed out that "maladministration" was so vague that it would threaten the separation of powers. Congress could remove any president it disagreed with on grounds of “maladministration.” This would give Congress complete power over the executive.
Madison proposed replacing the idea of "maladministration" with "high Crimes and Misdemeanors".
In Federalist No. 65, Hamilton explained impeachment. He defined impeachable offenses as “those offences which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.” The impeachment process is political in nature, not criminal. Congress has no power to impose criminal penalties on impeached officials.
Now, read carefully how Madison worded the impeachment clause (Article 1, Section 4, US Constitution): shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or OTHER high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
The word "OTHER" means that any and all high Crimes and Misdemeanors are as serious as Treason and Bribery and must be held to the same high standard.
What the Nazi Pelosi/Dipschitt/Na Na Nadler crime cabal has done, without following the Article V process for amending the Constitution, is they have shamelessly, brazenly, illegally amended Article 1, Section 4, of the US Constitution and lowered the bar to "maladministration" - and in the eyes of leftist progs, the fact that President Trump is still alive is "maladministration".
What we are witnessing today, folks, is a mob of maniacal malcontents and ideological idiots who actually believe that congress has plenary power over the Executive branch and that congress is running the country.
