Lying about having sex is not on the same level as using your office as POTUS to basically extort a foreign government into getting dirt on your political rival.

Stealing a cookie from the neighbor's cookie jar is theft. Forcing a teller to hand over $200K from the bank while pointing a gun at him is theft. Not on the same level.
