It is highly unlikely that President Trump will be impeached, infers Jim Newell of The New Republic. While there are multiple potential reasons for him leaving office prematurely, such as allegations of collusion with Russia during the 2016 election, there are currently no avenues towards that happening. Impeachment can only happen if Democrats gain a majority in Congress and take over two thirds of the Senate. The latter is incredibly unlikely to happen. Trump has made his supporters ignore his flaws and the accusations against him. As long as they stick with him, so will the GOP. The only realistic way for Trump to leave is by finishing his term.
The raid of Michael Cohen’s office was a further example of how far south things are going for President Trump, asserts Adam Davidson of The New Yorker. At least two major investigations are being led against the president. Cohen, who was under investigation for months, had many documents and recordings relating to Trump. In particular, he was involved in business dealings with people and companies across the world, from Indonesia to Brazil. Many Trump business partners across the world are currently under legal scrutiny. As evidence piles up, the president reaching the end of his term is becoming increasingly unlikely.
