As the current political situation unwinds there are things to watch for:

  1. Now that the GOP mega-donors have their tax cut, do Republicans become more open to impeaching Trump? He is a huge liability for the 2018 mid-terms and impeachment might improve their odds as a way of distancing themselves from him.
  2. As impeachment for Trump looks more and more likely, look for WikiLeaks to start dumping compromising information on Trump. If Putin can’t have a compromised politician in the White House then he can at least maximize the chaos. Also, WikiLeaks will point to such a dump of information and try to claim that they are unbiased.
  3. Once impeachment proceedings start, look for Russia to make further inroads into Ukraine.
