Trump will be impeached?…Eventually

Last February, I wrote an article stating that Trump would be impeached before the end of 2017.  In retrospect, it seems I was more hopeful then realistic. One reason impeachment did not occur in 2017 and may not occur in 2018 is that the Republicans have control over the House, and the Republicans will not support impeachment no matter what the facts may be.  But don’t panic, unless there is a dramatic shift in the polls and in Mr. Trump’s behavior, the Democrats should take control of the House in November.  There also is a reasonable possibility of taking the Senate, as well.  The shift of just two seats in the Senate will transfer control from the Republicans to the Democrats.
