    Actually not.

    There are ample grounds for impeachment.

    Again, a president can be impeached absent alleged criminal wrongdoing; he can be impeached and removed from office because he is incompetent, because of misconduct, or because he violated his oath of office – all misdemeanors in accordance with Article II, Section 4.

    In Trump’s case he could be impeached for compromising the integrity of the presidency as a result of his numerous violations of the Emoluments Clause.

    Trump could be impeached because of his unwarranted attacks on the judiciary.

    Trump could be impeached for dereliction of his constitutional responsibility by failing to timely appoint officers of the Nation’s Federal agencies.

    Trump could be impeached for violating his oath of office by providing intelligence to an adversary nation.

    Trump can be impeached because of the reckless, irresponsible tweeting, because of his incessant lying, and because of his continued efforts to propagate ridiculous conspiracy theories proven time and again to be completely false and without merit.

    Take your pick – all of the above or just one would be sufficient.

    Trump could be impeach for abuse of power for having two scoupes of ice cream when everyone else only could have one.

    Oh Trump could be impeached for having bad hair.

    Certainly I would love to see Trump out of office. But at this moment we don't have any evidence of either high crimes or misdeamenors.
    The House could impeach him for any reason that they want to- but the only 'legitimate reasons' are high crimes or misdeamors.
