Betting odds indicate that Trump will be removed in the first term

Why are the odds for Trump's impeachment increasing?

Donald Trump’s first months in the White House have been entangled in controversy. This is because of an ongoing F.B.I. Investigation that is trying to figure out what his campaign’s ties are with Russia. Not to mention that several executive orders are controversial as well as the repealing of a lot of federal and financial regulations the former president signed during his tenure in office.

If you keep up with our news section, you are aware that we are keeping up with Trump as well as his odds for leaving office in the top bookmakers. Well, his odds for impeachment have increased from almost half to a 10/11 since Monday.

Jessica Bridgea, a spokesperson for Ladbrokes, told Inverse yesterday that there are still people who bet on the president’s political longevity. However, most of them have taken an interest in placing their money where their mouths are. On the other hand, the other side of people is continuing to flood the betting house to place odds on the president’s removal from the Oval Office.

However, we should not forget that the chance of any president’s impeachment depends if the Senate will find the commander in chief guilty of bribery, treason or another high crime and misdemeanor that is stated by the Constitution. Moreover, James Comey, the F.B.I. Director, revealed this Monday that his federal agency is investigating Trump’s ties with Russia.
