If Trump is not removed from office, in all probability he will win again deceptively in 2020 with foreign help – from Russia, Ukraine, China, and / or some other country.

The U.S. House Judiciary Committee announced Tuesday two charges against President Donald Trump in an attempt to impeach him. However, it is highly unlikely that Trump will be removed from office, although a logical outcome of impeachment should be the termination of his job as the President.
The Democratic-controlled House – through Judiciary Committee head Jerry Nadler – has accused Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
It is stated that Trump abused his power to take Ukraine’s help to get his Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden investigated in a closed corruption case. And when Congress started impeachment proceedings against Trump, he obstructed the impeachment inquiry by refusing to provide various documents and also stopped officials from participating in the impeachment hearings.
After his impeachment in the House, the case will go for trial to the U.S. Senate where Democrats do not have sufficient numbers (67/100 needed) to win the case and get Trump removed from office.
Almost all Republicans in the Senate will oppose Trump’s removal because Trump has support of almost 40 million voters who are ready to reelect Trump despite all his misdemeanors. They will vote for only those Republicans who protect Trump in this impeachment case. Obviously, Republicans can’t afford to go against Trump.
If Trump is not removed from office, in all probability he will win again deceptively in 2020 with foreign help – from Russia, Ukraine, China, and / or some other country. Trump has been successfully exploiting the vulnerabilities of American judicial systems.
Despite facing impeachment in the Ukraine case, one of Trump’s accomplices Rudy Giuliani (who is also facing criminal investigation in this case) again went to Ukraine last week to get the Biden case reopened.
If Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced a corruption investigation against Biden, Trump will exploit the announcement throughout the campaign to target Biden.
Moreover, Russia – which allegedly helped Trump win in 2016 – is again expected to surreptitiously interfere in the 2020 presidential election to help Trump win.
In fact, Trump met Tuesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and other representatives of Russia to discuss election meddling, along with other issues.
Just had a very good meeting with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and representatives of Russia. Discussed many items including Trade, Iran, North Korea, INF Treaty, Nuclear Arms Control, and Election Meddling. Look forward to continuing our dialogue in the near future! pic.twitter.com/tHecH9a9ck

“Just had a very good meeting with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and representatives of Russia. Discussed many items including Trade, Iran, North Korea, INF Treaty, Nuclear Arms Control, and Election Meddling. Look forward to continuing our dialogue in the near future!,” Trump tweeted.
If Trump won again with Russian or some other foreign help, Democrats will keep holding investigations after 2020 and won’t be able to do anything against Trump.
This will become an election-victory model for Republicans who will emulate it in all subsequent elections to win deceitfully. Soon, the American voters will lose their relevance.
The 2020 presidential election is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
