If There Is Impeachment, the Senate Trial Will Be Fast and Trump Will Win

The odds of an impeachment of President Trump by the House of Representatives fluctuate daily. There is a large group of House Democrats who firmly want impeachment and are ready to begin the hearings tomorrow. There is another large group of moderate Democrats, many newly elected, who want to keep away from impeachment and instead focus on legislation involving matters voters care about such as health care, immigration and infrastructure.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to balance these competing factions by favoring investigations but discouraging actual impeachment proceedings. She knows that’s a political loser for the Democrats. But by playing with fire, Pelosi may get burned with an actual impeachment process whether she likes it or not.

One thing that’s not in doubt is the ultimate outcome of a trial in the Senate. Impeachment is just an accusation; it does not remove the president from office. Removal requires a conviction in the Senate.

As this article explains, the Senate is firmly under Republican control. If impeachment occurs, you can expect the trial in the Senate to be relatively brief and lead to Trump’s acquittal.

This is exactly what happened to Bill Clinton in 1998–1999. After his Senate trial was over, Clinton was more popular than ever. The same thing will happen with Trump.

A House impeachment followed by a Senate acquittal will more or less solidify Trump’s chances of winning reelection in 2020. It should be an interesting next six months in Congress.

This will definitely add to volatility and uncertainty in markets. Investors should stay focused on the conclusion of this article: Trump will prevail.

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
