If these charges sound a bit vague and ad hominem, that's no problem. In fact, Hylton notes, impeachment has always been an essentially political tool. There are virtually no limits on what may be considered an impeachable offense, as long as a majority of the House of Representatives and two-thirds of the Senate can agree on it.
