Impeachment failure: Trump boosted his position

The Republican party positions have significantly boosted. Trump was acquitted of impeachment charge and the Democrats are now struggling to find a strong candidate to run for the upcoming President elections in this November. "Trump is more preferable candidate so far. He recovered significant ground in the upcoming elections. But the year has just begun and it promises to be exciting. We will all witness even more internal party fighting, backroom deals and mutual hostility," RISS expert Ilya Kravchenko said.

Trump's "deal of the century" as a distraction ploy

Trump's "deal of the century" peace plan changes nothing, RISS expert Vladimir Fitin believes. "The U.S. President is just trying to distract people's attention from the impeachment trial. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been indicted on corruption charges in three separate cases. It turns out that both leaders will benefit from the "deal of the century." The peace plan was also unveiled to Netanyahu' political rival Benny Gantz as it is not yet clear which of them will be the next Prime Minister," he said. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas predictably rejected this deal, saying that "Jerusalem is not for sale, all our rights are not for sale and are not for bargain."

Trump impeachment has become dull even for Democrats

Trump impeachment has entered the final stage. RISS expert Ilya Kravchenko believes that hearings taking place in the Senate are most likely to fail. "First of all, the Senate is largely controlled by the Republican party making Trump's ouster unlikely. Secondly, the process was launched too rashly. This has led to the fact that the evidence that Democrats are trying to present cannot convince neither Senators nor journalists," he said. Mass media is starting to talk about impeachment process less. In addition, the trial against Trump revealed a significant polarization of the U.S. society.

Trump’s impeachment threatens the U.S. project "Ukraine"

Trump’s impeachment threatens the successful implementation of the U.S. project "Ukraine", RISS expert Sergey Mikhailov believes. K.Volker, U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations, M.Jovanovich, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, and W.Taylor, American diplomat, who testified in the impeachment inquiry into U.S. President D.Trump, resigned. It is unclear who will now be the leader of the "Ukraine" project," he said.

Trump impeachment inquiry polarizes American society

Trump impeachment inquiry enters protracted but most crucial stage. If Democrats want to move forward with impeaching Trump, they will have to do a tremendous amount of work, RISS expert Ilya Kravchenko believes.

Trump impeachment hearings to have consequences

The US House of Representatives has initiated its first public impeachment hearing into President Donald Trump. According to RISS expert Ilya Kravchenko, these hearings would affect not only the future of Trump's presidency but the future of the presidency itself. The impeachment hearings had revealed a lot of surprising things, he said.
