Donald Trump’s impeachment is allegedly going to happen before he will complete his first term as the president of the United States of America, predicts online bookmakers.
Ever since Donald Trump became the 45th POTUS, legal experts and political writers started predicting the ways and the reasons for his removal. The news of Trump’s impeachment or removal from his office has escalated ever since he fired FBI Director James Comey in the middle of a federal investigation.
British betting company Ladbrokes has cut down the price of a Donald Trump impeachment to odds-on 4-5 from 11-10. These new odds equate to a 55.6 percent probability that the Senate will remove Trump from office.
“Political punters are wondering how many more scandals can Trump overcome,” Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said in a statement. “And despite the short price on offer, money has poured in for the president to be impeached, leaving us with little option but to cut the odds.”
Before everyone started talking about Trump’s alleged collusion with the Russian government and even before he fired Comey, his impeachment or resignation odds before the end of his first term were 11-10. Additionally, 2-1 were the odds indicating that Americans will not re-elect him in 2020.
Ladbrokes’ PR Manager Alex Donohue was quoted by Politico as follows.
“From a betting perspective, Donald Trump’s presidency has triggered a massive boom for these kinds of markets. With Donald Trump, everything he does, it can be turned into speculation, and that can be turned into gambling.”
What Are Democrats Thinking?
Earlier this week, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) said he is moving forward with the process for impeaching Donald Trump. The congressman said he is currently working with constitutional lawyers to draft articles of impeachment against former billionaire businessman.
After multiple media reports claimed that Trump had put pressure on the former FBI Director James Comey to stop their investigation into National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Al Green made the call to his colleagues in the House and started preparing for Trump’s impeachment.
During his conversation with C-SPAN, Al Green said he is not going to change his mind just because he is receiving death threats and that he is moving forward with a plan to draft articles of Donald Trump’s impeachment.
“This is about my position. This is about what I believe. And this is where I stand. I will not be moved. The President must be impeached.”
Trump’s Impeachment Will Happen In Second Term?
The American documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has predicted about Donald Trump’s presidency. The famous filmmaker earlier predicted that Trump will win the 2016 presidential election. Now, he stated that Trump’s impeachment is likely going to happen during his second term in the office.
During the recently held Tribeca Film Festival, when he was asked about predicting Trump’s duration in the office, the director had this to say.
“I would say sometime in the middle of his second term. I think the equation is simple. It’s the American equation. Dumb down the population and make them ignorant and stupid. Ignorance leads to fear, fear leads to hate. Trump knew that part of the equation really well. And hate leads to violence.”
Prior to this, Michael Moore predicted that Trump’s way of running a country will surely get everyone killed. In an essay published on his Facebook account, Michael Moore gave an insight into an apocalyptic future, which is allegedly going to happen because of Donald Trump.
“He will suspend constitutional rights. He will round up anyone he deems a threat. He will declare war, and his Republican Congress will back him,” he wrote back at that time.
