What criminal code, or federal statute did the democrats cite in their articles of impeachment?

Update:

MAX- Impeachment isn't a political issue. The constitution clearly states it requires a high CRIME, or misdemeanor.

Update 2:

SALLY- Perhaps the part of the constitution that states a president can be impeached for high CRIMES is why people confuse impeachment with a crime......But it is nice to see you acknowledge President Trump has committed no crime.

Update 3:

James- The constitution requires a  high CRIME for impeachment not a "civil violation". Without a crime i would say it is democrats violating the impeachment clause.

    None. They don't have to because impeachment is no a criminal case. It is a political issue.

    I don't understand why so many people confuse impeachment with crime. There are many crimes - like jaywalking, defacing a mailbox - that are not impeachable. And there are many impeachable offenses - like abuse of power, obstruction of justice - that are not necessarily crimes. They are two different things. So how can we take YOU seriously when you don't even have the facts?

    None, this isn't a matter of whether or not a crime was committed. They are trying to impeach him on civil grounds, which is a) using bribery to get a foreign nation to meddle in the 2020 election b) obstruction of congress by blocking witnesses from testifying.

    Neither are criminal grounds/matters, both are violations of the constitution however.... might want to educate yourself better before commenting next time.

    None since none are required!

    You're ignoring there were no federal laws at the time Congress was granted the power of impeachment!
