I'll believe that that inept clownshow to the south can accomplish anything when I see it.

I voted "somewhat unlikely" with these reasons & caveats:

The GOP currently controls the Presidency, House, Senate, and Supreme Court. So if they stick together behind the guy who gave them that victory, with that advantage, he cannot be successfully brought down.

First caveat: that lasts until 2018 - if the Democrats regain the Senate and/or House decisively, then they will almost certainly use impeachment and every other weapon in the political / legal arsenal.

Second caveat: this assumes that the GOP are loyal to Trump now and will remain so. However, if a certain "Deep State" / NeoCon / hawk faction among them decides they can get rid of Trump, but still get the things they want (less taxes for the rich, no Obamacare, destroy the environment, war against Iran and/or Russia), I can see them Julius Caesar-ing him in favour of Pence. Aside from his personal foibles, he's still enacting policies which they would agree with.

So basically, since nobody in Washington's establishment has any shame, I figure Trump has got until the 2018 elections at least.

He's more likely to be whacked than impeached.

I think that, too.

Trump certainly wasn't the GOP's 'Plan A' lst election, but Trump has gained the party a lot of power and support they didn't have previously. I think the Republicans have a lot to lose if they don't just give him the ball and let him run with it for a while.

He'll be assassinated before he's impeached, mark my words.

By "assassinated" you mean his diet of KFC and no exercise that will eventually punch his ticket then yes that is a very real possibility.

I think it's "somewhat likely." We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Impeached for what, exactly? For all the hearings and investigations there's been no concrete evidence of anything. Impeachment doesn't mean immediate removal from office, it's basically authorization for Congress to have a trial. Clinton was caught red-handed with perjury, was impeached, and survived to finish out his term.

Commentary: Meeting with a Russian is not a crime

After the torrent of claims that Moscow “meddled” in the 2016 presidential election, it is remarkable that when a Russian actually showed up to meet with Trump campaign officials, she did not interfere after all. Rather, Veselnitskaya allegedly spent 20 minutes seeking a softening of U.S. sanctions against Russia. Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, left after 10 minutes. Campaign manager Paul Manafort focused on his email. No one followed up.

It is a fair inference that Manafort and Kushner attended to prevent the meeting from becoming a political embarrassment. They failed.

In today’s white-hot partisan environment, it has escaped notice that it is not a crime to meet a Russian. Obviously, there are circumstances where it would be improper or even illegal for a political campaign official to conspire with a Russian, but the known facts of the June 2016 meeting do not come close. This conclusion should be revisited if it turns out that the campaign provided Veselnitskaya’s plane ticket or had other financial arrangements with her.

For now, two words describe the Trump Tower meeting: brain-dead. But dumb does not equal criminal. Criminalizing all dumb moves in political campaigns would effectively eviscerate the First Amendment.

good thing there's a team of highly respected investigators and lawyers assigned to decide. :)

Translation: Ignore the Putin behind the Iron Curtain.

Wait until the details of the Russian money laundering start coming out. The spin on that will be a masterclass in bullshit. ;)
