    Senator Daines, Please refrain from sending me any more of your ridiculous form letters spewing party talking points. Not only does it appear that your constituent’s concerns are irrelevant to you, it also seems to indicate that you need a civics lesson. To say no crime has been committed is ignorant at best. First, there has been no trial, only an inquiry. To have made a determination on whether the POTUS has committed a crime is premature. Second, and more importantly, ‘other high crimes and misdemeanors” only requires An abuse of power. Perhaps you could benefit from a simple internet search: “The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct by officials. Offenses by officials also include ordinary crimes, but perhaps with different standards of proof and punishment than for non-officials, on the grounds that more is expected of officials by their oaths of office. Indeed, the offense may not even be a breach of criminal statute. See Harvard Law Review "The majority view is that a president can legally be impeached for 'intentional, evil deeds' that 'drastically subvert the Constitution and involve an unforgivable abuse of the presidency' — even if those deeds didn’t violate any criminal laws."” Please be more thoughtful and intelligent in your replies.
