And I would also reject your premise that Maddy clarified anything other than her (assuming Maddy is a her) subjective take. I'd imagine if you polled all attorneys, my guess is that millions, if not a majority, would state that Trump has committed impeachable offenses.
Well, those are the incendiary words we keep hearing from the proponents of impeachment, but, curiously, nobody seems to ever articulate exactly what those "impeachable offenses" are. First it was "collusion" with Russia (a term that has no legal meaning), then obstruction of justice (though I never once heard an even remotely viable legal argument there). Those allegations all proved to be baseless--in fact, fraudulent. Then we had an entirely new allegation about collusion with the Ukraine--an allegation that was revealed to have no merit at all with respect to Trump, but that did manage to crack wide open an ongoing criminal enterprise centered in the Ukraine involving many of the most rabid proponents of impeachment. (Wanna take the other side of my bet that the infamous computer server turns up there?) And then we got the anonymous whistleblower's allegations, whatever they were, which once again were thoroughly debunked, in part by a phony transcript later revealed to have literally been made up by a ranking member of the "D" team. I have no idea what new "offenses" are presently being discussed in the secret meetings of the democrat members of Congress, but if they had something, I'm quite sure we would know about it.
The vague, nonspecific allegations of "impeachable offenses" leveled against Trump have been a moving target from the beginning. As far as I can tell, it's never been anything more than specious rhetoric. The dems have, at every juncture, simply thrown linguini against the wall and hoped something--anything--would stick.
I honestly have no idea what particular "offense" you think is impeachable, but after three years of concerted investigation (to the exclusion of virtually all other Congressional business, and after employing every legal and illegal tactic imaginable), the dems still have nothing that can even be voted upon. If you know something they don't, let's hear it.
