Now, describe under the rule of law what charges should be delivered to the Senate to impeach Trump?

Charges under "the rule of law"? You think this is a criminal proceeding?
Trump abused his office. He asked a foreign government to investigate his political opponent, while delaying aid to said foreign government. Look up "high crimes and misdemeanors".
The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct by officials, such as dishonesty, negligence, perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of public funds or assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty, unbecoming conduct, refusal to obey a lawful order, chronic intoxication, including such offenses as tax evasion.
The word "High" refers to the office and not the offense. Indeed the offense may not even be a breach of criminal statute.
Now, Republicans may think that abusing your elected position for personal gain is expected (see Elaine Chao and Mitch McConnell), but the founding fathers did not think so. That is why impeachment exists. You may tolerate corruption in your elected officials, but Democrats don't. Corruption always works its way into any system with power and money, but at least Democrats fight it instead of excusing and defending it.
