"This is about the Constitution of the United States and it's important for the president to know, and Putin to know, that voters in America should decide who our president is, not Putin and Russia."
"It is essential that we bring this impeachment to stop the president from trying to rig...Not from trying. He tried....from rigging the next election."
"Here we go again, another Con Job by the Do Nothing Democrats. All of this work was supposed to be done by the House, not the Senate!"
There is good and bad news there for risk appetite, although the impeachment will ake the most attention and weigh on equities and potentially support the yen and CHF.
