Good analysis. I wonder if his businesses will suffer from his presidency?

Trump has so far deflected all scandals thrown his way. If he can maintain GOP support, he ain't going anywhere.

It will be the Mid Terms that will depend on his future. A strong Democrat majority in Congress, after mid terms, will see Trump ousted.

Republicans want to get on with the business of changing laws and setting new ones, they own both chambers of Congress and they own the White House, they would still own it if Trump is removed, with Mike Pence sworn in as the 46th President, if any indictments get levied, Pence may Pardon Trump people.

A sitting President cannot be indicted, they have to be removed, impeached and that is a political process, not a common law court case process. The Senate requires a two thirds vote majority to remove a President from office.

If President Trump starts losing GOP backing, he'll be on dodgy ground. But the Republican Senators have to be careful too, because if they vote to remove a democratically elected President, the public may revolt, Trump still has a very strong support base, so Republicans may lose ground and Democrats regain control in both chambers of Congress. Republicans have won all 5 Congressional Seats that have gone up for grabs since Trumps inauguration. The last Seat in Georgia saw the Democrats throw millions of dollars, record amounts to try grab the Seat but they failed after having spent a fortune trying to win it.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

The American people voted for the change that President Trump offered. If the established system won't embrace that change there will be repercussions. Same applies here in relation to Brexit.

It is wholly wrong to attempt to subvert the will of the people.

They might not. It would be two years from the General Election and they might prefer to keep him in place, run against him and even hope the Republicans tear themselves part deciding if he should have an uncontested primary (assuming he would want to run again - big assumption).

No but the dirt here is being uncovered by Americans. We're pretty ruthless to our politicians and if our press could find something on May they would.

Trump and the Republicans are in the majority in all three branches of government. They have the power to do an awful lot now but as they're finding out with healthcare it's not that easy.

I agree. The decision of the American people should be respected and as their closest ally we should respect their elected President.

Then it is good that they are being measured in what they do.

It wasn't just those 2 there were ATTEMPTED to be hacked. They are just the 2 that were successful. It still depended on what was found.

The RNC was hacked as well, just not released.

The DNC refused to let the FBI examine their servers. Whether the DNC have handed them over now, I don't know; I've been out of the loop for a few weeks.

Quote:
In his testimony in January on the cyber attacks, then-director of the FBI James Comey said the agency never got access to the machines themselves, but obtained access to the forensics from a review of the system performed by CrowdStrike, a third-party cybersecurity firm.

"We got the forensics from the pros that they hired which -- again, best practice is always to get access to the machines themselves, but this my folks tell me was an appropriate substitute," Comey said.

"The DNC coordinated with the FBI and federal intelligence agencies and provided everything they requested, including copies of DNC servers," Watson said. She added that the copy contains the same information as the physical server.

The FBI joined CrowdStrike’s efforts to boot Russia from the server, but then-Homeland Security Department secretary Jeh Johnson complained the DNC rebuffed their offer to help. This was because Russia was already out of their system by then.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump



So, why didn't the DNC give the FBI access to the actual machine? Did they have something to hide, such as screwing over Bernie Sanders? Makes you wonder.
