I'd suggest extending the workplace analogy even further, as if the president was a corporate CEO and the Senate was the company's board. So my standard would be:
Has this president (CEO) acted deliberately to place his own advancement and/or enrichment ahead of the that of the country (corporation)?
I think any board answering yes to that question would fire the CEO in a heartbeat. Should the Senate have a higher standard?
I'm not expecting any surprises.
