Could President Trump be impeached or prosecuted for giving secrets to the Russians?

There are allegations that President Trump told the Russians confidential information in a meeting in the White House. The US President and vice-president have the legal authority to declassify whatever secret information they want, so it is generally agreed that if he did pass on the information it would not amount to a crime and therefore Mr Trump could not be prosecuted or impeached for doing it.
