I'm glad you brought up future presidents. Any democratic president elected, should have impeachment hearings enacted behind closed doors from Inauguration, until his first term is up, providing he/she can withstand the constant barrage of attacks. yes, precedent has indeed been set here.

Let's say a guy got into office and it turned out he was a homicidal maniac.. and he was leaving behind him a trail of bodies along with a bunch of witnesses all identifying him as the murderer across multiple states.

Then you impeach him. Why is that so difficult to understand?
How would you draw up any articles of impeachment without being allowed to investigate and gather evidence of Presidential wrongdoing?
Eyewitness? To bad, you're not allowed to investigate by interviewing them.
Fingerprints on a weapon? To bad, can't investigate and subpoena prints.
DNA evidence? To bad, can't investigate and subpoena blood or hair samples.
This is about the President's lawyers making a legal argument that a President is immune from investigation.
