‘"Under our Constitution, the president 'shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,'" Amash wrote Saturday. "While 'high Crimes and Misdemeanors' is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates the public trust." […] Amash wrote that impeachment does not require "probable cause" has been committed, but rather "simply requires a finding that an official has engaged in careless, abusive, corrupt or otherwise dishonorable conduct."’ Justin Amash, Michigan congressman, becomes first GOP lawmaker to call for impeachment Correct. Indeed, ‘misdemeanors’ refers to bad acts or bad conduct on the part of a president; a president can be removed from office via the impeachment process absent alleged criminal wrongdoing. Impeachment is a political – not legal – process. The findings of the Mueller investigation, along with Trump’s conduct before and during the investigation, clearly document careless, abusive, and dishonorable conduct on the part of Trump – such as his unwarranted attacks on the judiciary.
