In fact, abuse of power was a serious concern. But lawyers can argue all day about what the framers intended. However, that isn't necessary. https://constitutionus.com/ If the Constitution read "shall be removed from Office ONLY on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors... Or impeachment shall be limited to high crimes... or some variation of that, then it would clearly be limiting. But it specifically is not limiting. It only states that they must be removed for high crimes and misdemeanors. On that there is no option. It specifically does not set crimes as the minimum standard. It sets crimes, bribery and such as an absolute, irrefutable standard. For all the bs out there, this is unavoidably, logically obvious if you just read what it says. The trump white house is lying. And any lawyer arguing that the Constitution limits impeachment to ....high crimes and misdemeanors, is lying. The Constitution clearly, unavoidably, specifically does not limit impeachment only to crimes.
