Trump should be gone by the summer solstice - Update

That is, I think there’s a considerably better than 50/50 chance that he will be.

Not by impeachment and removal; it won’t have to come to that. The forthcoming public investigations should bring more heat than the heart of a quasar. A while ago a list was published of what Democrats probably have in mind - according to House Republicans. This is just the first four; to quote more here would exceed fair use standards, so you’ll have to click over to Axios to see the remaining 14, and the author's own learned remarks on the matter.
President Trump’s tax returns
Trump family businesses — and whether they comply with the Constitution's emoluments clause, including the Chinese trademark grant to the Trump Organization
Trump's dealings with Russia, including the president's preparation for his meeting with Vladimir Putin
The payment to Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels
Behind all the tough talk and bluster, there is not a more pitiful, cowardly, whimpering, sniveling half-a-man on the face of this planet than “President” Donald J. Trump. (There are unfortunately a good many just about as bad, and they make up a far higher percentage than they do in the general population of right-wing electeds, right-wing media ranters, and so forth. But none worse.) He’ll break.

He will, for want of a better term, abdicate. Flee on a private jet in the middle of the night (after he and his family have stashed much loot in what they hope are untraceable accounts) to who-knows-where. I used to think Russia, but since he still owes Russian banks many millions, perhaps even billions, I now doubt he'd go to where they could get their hands on him effortlessly.

North Korea? Nah. But we'll find out.

Update: More, much more, from Axios.
