The Article II clause gave readers some guidance by giving two specific examples of impeachable misconduct: “Treason” and “Bribery”. Both were “high” offenses indeed.
”Treason” – defined elsewhere in the Constitution – meant waging war against America or betraying her to an enemy power. “Bribery” – secretly bending laws to favor the rich and powerful – involved official misconduct of a highly malignant sort, threatening the very soul of a democratic republic committed to equality under law. In the case of a president who did not take bribes but gave them – in effect paying men to vote for him – the bribery would undermine the very legitimacy of the election that brought him to office.
