Impeachment odds: Record bets online that Trump won’t last until year-end

"At its peak on Wednesday, the price of a ‘yes’ contract on the impeachment question reached a record 33 cents, implying a 33 percent probability that Trump would be impeached, as compared to only 7 percent last week. The odds are currently at 21-10 that Trump is impeached in 2017."

NOTE: the people who wrote the article do not understand the distinction between "impeached" and "removed from office." Note this sentence: "Online wagering sites are taking bets on whether Donald Trump, mired in controversies over the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, will serve out a full term as the 45th US president or will be impeached before year-end." As most of you know (or should know), there is no hard "or" in those alternatives. He could be impeached before the year's end AND serve his full term. Bill Clinton did exactly that.
