But... as we've discovered over the years.... it's only "illegal" if you don't happen to be a card-carrying commie Democrat.  Otherwise it (anything) is perfectly OK.
Trying to remember how many times any member of Congress called for impeachment of Obammy.

Seven Times the GAO Found the Obama Administration Violated Federal Law
Joel B. Pollak
16 Jan 2020

Democrats and journalists were excited Thursday when the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a legal opinion that the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) had violated the Impoundment Control Act by withholding congressionally appropriated aid to Ukraine last summer.

The non-binding opinion was disputed by the OMB, which released a memo last month arguing that the “programmatic” delay sought to fulfill, not oppose, congressional intent. ...

Though the GAO works for Congress, it is not the finder of fact in impeachment cases. Moreover, it is not even clear that the Impoundment Control Act is constitution.

Nevertheless, if a mere GAO finding is sufficient to justify impeachment, then President Barack Obama ought to have been impeached at least seven times over for each of the following cases in which the GAO found that the Obama administration had violated federal law.  ...
Article at Breitbart goes on to list and explain the seven instances

Looks like he broke the law.

When I was 16 I broke the law by parking too close to a pole.  It cost me $3.50, which is $3.50 more than the fine for the law y'all claim Trump broke and therefore must be Impeached, ASAP.  Crimes are in progress, I've heard.  I guess I can't be a politician now....

Well ok...

The special counsel found that Russia did interfere with the election, but “did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple efforts from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.”

As far as obstruction, the Mueller report laid out facts on both sides but did not reach a conclusion. Barr’s letter said that “the Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’”

But Barr said that he and Rosenstein "have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel's investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense."

The most clear-cut of those violations is the Bergdahl deal, because that came directly from Obama himself, and there isn't any question that it violated the law.  The only response is "well yes, we broke the law, but we thought it was a good move so we did it anyway."  Obama very clearly did not notify Congress as required because he was afraid of the political blowback.  But being afraid that Congress and the American people might (with justification in this case) object to a prisoner exchange is not a valid excuse for ignoring the law.

As long as you aren't Russian it shouldn't be a problem. Just take a little time.

Even Mueller said Trump did nothing wrong.

As far as obstruction, the Mueller report laid out facts on both sides but did not reach a conclusion. Barr’s letter said that “the Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’”
