    When Will Trump Be Impeached, IYO?



    In brief, a POTUS can be impeached by a majority vote in the Senate, and none ever has been. The ones wheo have been threatened with it, Andrew Jackson, John Tyler, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, have all resigned or survived the vote in the House, to charge them.

    So, the key event is the House Judiciary Committee formally takes up an inquiry into whether the POTUS should be impeached.

    Using that as our "event", please answer the poll question and explain your forecast below.

    We should have a real good indication by August how bad things are for Trump.

    There are a whole host of real scenarios after that point; most not good for Trump.

    He won't survive until June 1st this year, IMO. But yes, August 31st is the EXTREME horizon I foresee.

    And then the arrests can begin.........

    I bet on Trump being out of the Presidency by Jan 20 2018 one way or the other.

    I say Trump will die, resign or be impeached before Jan 20, 2018.

    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?
    Thanks from Madeline

    Actually, the House of Representatives can impeach by majority vote. U.S. Const. art. I, 2. The Senate can convict, but only upon a 2/3 vote of the members present. U.S. Const. art. I, 3. 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.

    Yea I don't know either. If Russia went all in to secure him as president, they sure aren't going to let him go down and discover they were indeed behind it. Would create a bit of chaos on the world scene. Russia prefers their leverage over him.

    Depends on the outcome of the Russian investigation. If it can be proven that Trump promised something to Putin, such as I will remove your sanctions if you throw the election...I would hope he will be gone.

    I don't even think that's close to the reason. The GOP establishment won't let it happen. They've been waiting almost five decades to even the score for being the only party with a president who was forced to resign. That's what Clinton was all about. 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.
