Ken Starr, the guy who got Bill Clinton impeached, a day ago on Fox: “What we hear is 'improper.' I've never heard the suggestion 'unlawful.’ I think, again, the president's judgment is being called into question — whether this is wise or not. But, not a crime. Reasonable people could say he should not have done that. Perfectly reasonable conclusion ... but the idea that this was impeachable is, to me, quite extreme. It's extravagant. It's certainly not what the founding generation intended.”

Starr wasn’t interested in defending Donald Trump’s behavior, but he didn’t think it rose to the standard for impeachment, saying about the proceedings, “It's extravagant. It's political.” 

It’s funny seeing Starr defend Trump, given that he pushed for Clinton’s impeachment over a consensual sexual dalliance. But the Republican defense has held steady … that is, until Ambassador Gordon Sondland.

ironies about here. Starr should know the constitution doesn't require specific illegality. It is very vague as to the meaning of "high crimes and misdemeanors".

The only specific crime Starr got Clinton on is perjury. All the other melodrama, the volumes about his sexual behavior, the semen soaked dress, were all sound and furry. And the perjury wouldn't have happened if Starr hadn't backed him into a corner and forced him to give a deposition (which his deputy Brett Kavanaugh now says shouldn't happen--to a Republican, I guess).

Nixon was impeached for "abuse of power" among others, which conducting foreign policy for the sole purpose of one's political campaign should qualify for in spades. Had he just issued a statement that the over-zealous staffers who did the burglary have been sacked it never would have happened. By using the levers of power available to him to cover it up he abused his power.
