Wagering On Trump Surges With Comey Revelations

One of the biggest gambles the USA has ever taken was the recent election of Donald Trump as the forty fifth president of the great nation. Many voters were certain they picked the right man for the job who promised a wall on the Mexican border and to drain the swamp of politicians that were not for making America great again.

So far the man has chosen to find fault with just about all the free world and has alienated the rest in a brash and determined manner pushing the limits of political decorum. In a country that has in its past checks and balances to ensure the continued transparency of the democratic process the wagers are on that are dependent on the adherence to the rule of law.

Online gambling operators in the  U.K. have been watching the side show for some time now posting the latest odds on various Donald Trump’s episodes including whether the boss will get fired or resign before his first four year term is completed.

The recent FBI director’s testimony under oath is causing some punters to reach for the sky and put some money down after assessing the potential damage to the Trump administration that Mr.Comey’s  statements may have caused.  Newsweek has reported that the U.K. online betting operator Ladbrokes revealed there was an uptick in wagers after Comey’s testimony. The odds of impeachment  or resignation went from 4/5 to 4/7, translating into a 63.6 percent chance that the President  will not make it to 2020.  

Columnist for The Hill, Brent Budowsky wrote recently, “Appointing former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel was a profound and historic move that will ensure the facts come out. As the Trump presidency enters a summer of scandal and hearings, revelations and leaks and disastrous poll ratings, many Republicans in Congress, who will continue to face contentious town hall meetings, will belatedly run from Trump like Olympic sprinters.”
