    If you think I'm wrong then bet me. The loser picks a song they have to dedicate to the winner . The loser has to put up a new thread within one week of either the death, resignation or impeachment or within a week after Jan 20, 2018 which ever comes first.

    Do I have any takers?
    Strategy wise, it's best for the GOP (arguably) if Pence is only POTUS for a few months before November 2020. But that assumes Trump does not burn down the whole GOP between now and then.

    Astounding as the TREASON charges he is under investigation for, his BRIBERY and PUBLIC CORRUPTION charges are done and dusted. A first year law student could send him and his entire crew to prison just on what's already been admitted in public.

    I think the GOP Congress is waking up to how risky he is, and that shit rolls downhill. They will HAVE to impeach him (start the process, anyway) to have a HOPE of being re-elected in November 2018. And nobody wants to be the last rat off the sinking ship.

    And I think GOP governors are likewise scared.

So they could say, see they did it too! There's no way, without an EXCEPTIONAL reason and being forced into it, that they'll go down 0-2 in that department.
    But what if Trump becomes so vile..which he will that they fear losing their seats over him. No one really goes down with the ship anymore these days.

The only two presidents to be impeached were Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, and neither was convicted. For Nixon, a preliminary bill of impeachment was passed by a House committee, but Nixon resigned before it came to a vote, after being told by Republican House and Senate members that he would be convicted. I am not familiar with any such threats to Jackson or Tyler.
    Trump cannot -- literally CANNOT -- tolerate humiliation. He will resign, IMO, on or before the day the House Judicial Committee opens official inquiries.

    What loyalty. This is not Clinton, lying about getting sex. It's not Nixon, lying about trying to fix the election with 5 bumbling Cuban American operatives.

    This is the Nagasaki of all accusations a POTUS could ever face.

    I actually know some dems that fear that more. A united GOP behind a Pres Pence could technically get things passed that they don't like. A Pres Trump and a divided GOP cant get anything done.

    question is what are you going to impeach him for? Trying to bring healthcare cost down thru a new plan and prevent Terrorist from coming into the country. Liberals In Wanderland. Still can't get over the fact Hillary Lost. She was destined to be Queen succeeding King Obama. Trump ruined your "Wet Dream"

    It also assumes he does not burn down the whole country between now and then.

    I don't see him being convicted, possibly impeached, but not convicted. Even if it was found his campaign violated the Logan Act I doubt his fingerprints are on any of that. Plus, legal scholars consider the Logan Act too broad and it would be difficult to prosecute. If they colluded with the Russians to influence the election, again, I'm not sure Trump would have done it personally and they probably would have made sure nothing ties back to him.

    Having said all that, if either or both of those things turned out to be fact, even if his fingerprints aren't found, he's likely to lose what little support he currently has and he'd eventually have a temper tantrum and take his ball and go home. In other words, resign.

    You may see individual Republicans break away, some will even have party approval to do so if it'll help with their constituents, but I don't think the party itself will allow it to happen.

    *without a VERY good reason

    Agree with this.

    Say hello to President Pence.
