1. Absolutely.

A President can be impeached for anything, whatsoever, that the House deems is impeachable. Then, the Senate can remove a President from office if it deems the conduct alleged worthy of removal. There is no "test," and the Constitution gives little guidance.

I will say this, however. In our 233 year history as a republic, no Senate has ever removed a President from office pursuant to Articles of Impeachment from the House. In that sense, Trump's "exoneration" is to be expected. Nothing, ultimately, will change today.
