According to bookmakers, Trump's odds of impeachment have surged since the Robert Mueller's indictments have become public.

President Donald Trump’s odds of being impeached have shot up following news of the first indictments in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling, at least according to one leading prediction market. The odds of Trump being ousted prior to the end of his first term rose to 38 percent on Predict It, a real money political prediction market. That represents a five percent increase on where it stood prior to Monday's indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, and a guilty plea by George Papadopoulos.

Bookmakers put Trump's odds at remaining in office until the end of 2019 at just 57%

What’s more, the odds of Trump still being in the White House by the end of 2019 now stand at just 57 percent, representing a six-point drop in the past few days.
