    In re high crimes and misdemeanors:

    Section 4. The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    This is analogous to a minimum sentencing requirement for the named offenses. It in no way limits the acts for which an official may be impeached. On that score, Gerald Ford was precisely correct when he said that an impeachable offense is whatever the House of Representatives says it is.
