Re: Rename the terms?

it was allegedly a misdemeanour

In my experience "misdemeanour" means something like "peccadillo", but it clearly has some technical meaning in the US legal system that I'm unaware of. The "high crimes and misdemeanours" that Trump stands accused of seems to imply that moderate crimes are to be expected of POTUS, but really serious and really trivial stuff is unacceptable.
