Gerhardt says if this isn't impeachable, nothing is.

Michael Gerhardt of the University of North Carolina Law School testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that if Congress does not punish President Trump for his actions the power of the Constitution will erode. "I want to stress that if what we're talking about is not impeachable, then nothing is impeachable," Gerhardt said. "... If Congress concludes that they're going to give a pass to the president here … every other president will say, 'OK, then I can do the same thing.' The boundaries will just evaporate, and those boundaries are set up by the Constitution. We may be witnessing, unfortunately, their erosion. And that is a danger to all of us."
