Betting on Trump’s Impeachment Odds

Trump wave

Political betting Includes an array of events that can be wagered on, including election campaigns, inauguration speeches, state of the union addresses, impeachment odds, and more. Presidential impeachment odds have gained momentum during President Donald Trump’s first term, and you will find the current odds for this to actually happen a little further down this page.

An impeachment is typically a civil suit made by the people, officials, or government against the President for a supposed crime he or she has committed. To be impeached does not necessarily remove the President from office, however, so the trial that takes place during the impeachment process provides bettors with many wagering opportunities and betting lines for various potential outcomes.

Is It Legal To Bet On Presidential Impeachments?

Gambling on political betting odds, such as betting on the 2020 Presidential election, is legal so long as the wager is placed through a licensed and regulated domestic or offshore sportsbook. With US-based sports betting being such a new commodity in America, we have not really found any state-regulated sportsbooks offering these kinds of betting options as of yet.

However, there are several licensed offshore sportsbooks that are offering betting options and odds for President Trump to be impeached. You will see several of these sites listed here, and they meet all the regulatory criteria and credentials to serve legal online political betting options.

For bettors that do find local options, it may still be worth betting at a licensed offshore online sportsbook due to the bonuses and competitive odds offered.  We recommend you shop lines from both options to find the best possible deals.

Are There Always Betting Odds Available For Presidential Impeachments?

No. Odds typically only surface when there is actually a chance that impeachment will take place.  Licensed offshore sportsbooks will normally be the first to provide odds on Presidential impeachment. However, impeachment odds are not exclusively for Presidents, as Vice Presidents and other civil officers of the government can be impeached and put on trial. However, only the highest-ranking politicians will have their impeachment chances reflected on the odds boards.

What Are The Odds Of President Trump Being Impeached?

Several groups and politicians have all called for Trump’s impeachment and have tried to initiate the process in some way or are at least laying the groundwork. In the earlier part of his first term, President Trump’s impeachment seemed unlikely, but with the current Ukraine “scandal,” impeachment odds for Donald Trump seem to be on the upswing.

With Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling for official impeachment proceedings (which come before any actual impeachment vote in the House), oddsmakers have increased the President’s odds of impeachment during his first term. If President Trump were to get impeached before the end of his first term, odds for Mike Pence becoming the next US President would skyrocket.

What Led To The Impeachment Inquiry?

Mueller’s Report

On March 22, the Mueller Report was delivered to Attorney General William Barr to review. He later released a summary stating the investigation “did not find evidence to charge other Americans in conspiring with Russia in 2016.” Barr’s report stated that it did not come to a conclusion about obstruction of justice.

On March 27, 2019, Representative Rashida Tlaib introduced resolution H.Res. 257 which called for a formal impeachment investigation, after H.Res.13 was introduced in January of 2019 Representative Brad Sherman. Earlier in March Jerrold Nadler, House Judiciary Committee Chairman requested documents and an unredacted report from the Special Counsel for a pre-impeachment investigation. However, a DOJ spokesperson called Nadler’s subpoena “premature and unnecessary,” saying the publically released redacted version of the report later released April 18 had “minimal redactions” and that Attorney General Barr has already made arrangements to show Congress the report with even fewer redactions.

Following Mueller’s testimony on July 24, House Democrats did not file official impeachment proceedings.

Ukrainian Scandal

While the Mueller Testimony did not give Democrats immediate cause for an impeachment inquiry, Trump’s most recent scandal has. On August 12, a whistleblower within the White House filed a complaint stemming from a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. According to the complaint, Trump threatened to withhold military aid to Ukraine unless Zelensky investigated Joe and Hunter Biden.

After the complaint was not sent to Congress, Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff subpoenaed Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire on September 13. After news outlets revealed that the complaint regarded Ukraine, Trump admitted that he did discuss the Bidens with Zelensky. As a result, on September 24, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced there would be a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.

In an attempt to prove his innocence, Trump released that phone call’s transcript on September 25 and Maguire gave his testimony to the House Intelligence Committee the next day.

With claims from the whistleblower that the White House is covering up the severity of the President’s actions, Trump has denied all the allegations against himself.

Which Presidents Have Undergone The Impeachment Process?

Two U.S. Presidents have undergone the entire process of being impeached. The first was Andrew Johnson, the 17th President of the United States, and the second was Bill Clinton, the 42nd President. Both were acquitted of their charges and permitted to resume their elected Presidential terms to completion.

A third U.S. President, Richard Nixon, was set to undergo the impeachment process but resigned before proceedings could get fully underway, all due to his role in the 1972-1974 Watergate Scandal.

FAQs

What Qualifies A President To Be Impeached?
According to the U.S. Constitution, any government official, Vice President, and/or the President may undergo the process of being impeached if they are suspected of bribery, treason, or other high crimes and/or misdemeanors.
Who Can Impeach The President?
Technically, the people can initiate the impeachment process. While it is carried out by the legislative body, they too can initiate the process, as well as judges, House members, or even a public petition.
How Long Is The Impeachment Process?
Few impeachments against a President have occurred, but judging by the length of Johnson’s process to Nixon’s and Clinton’s, it seems as technology advances, the ability to undergo and complete an impeachment process becomes faster and less cumbersome. Clinton’s impeachment process lasted 5 months. An impeachment process today could be completed well within 3 months’ time, with betting odds for impeachment even sooner than that.
Can Anyone Stop The Impeachment Process Once It Starts?
Not as long as a majority of the U.S. House of Representatives votes to begin an impeachment process. Unlike typical civil or criminal trials, impeachment trials do not have to meet the same evidence or charging standards. The U.S. Constitution provides the House with the sole Power of Impeachment and Congress can decide what matters in an impeach trial. Unless the individual undergoing the process of being impeached resigns from their position, there is little one can do to stop an impeachment trial.
