On Monday morning, FBI agents, acting on a referral from Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating the Trump campaign’s possible Russia ties, raided the NY office and hotel room of Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s lawyer. With this move, Mueller is now within striking distance of Trump himself, and most everyone agrees that such a strike is very likely forthcoming. Perhaps a final showdown between Trump and Mueller is now inevitable; perhaps it always was.
By my lights, most everything hinges on the question of whether the Trump campaign actively and knowingly colluded with Russian agents to tip the election in Trump’s favor. If Mueller attempts to pull the trigger on Trump without such evidence, Trump will almost certainly remain in office. Even if Mueller were to find compelling evidence of some other wrongdoing, Republicans in the House would likely refuse to impeach Trump on the grounds that Mueller had acted beyond the scope of his investigation. Such an argument wouldn’t persuade many Democrats, but it wouldn’t have to, with Republicans firmly in control of the House. As for the possibility of a blue wave reshaping congress, the election is still many months away, and it looks increasingly as though this showdown will be over by then. High noon is now.
The stocks on today’s list have done well under Trump and are likely to continue to do well if he remains in office. Remember to treat these ideas as just that, ideas, and do your own research before making any investment decision.
