Barclays: Impeachment Wouldn’t Crash Markets

The Hill reports:

President Trump’s removal from office, either by impeachment or electoral means, would not endanger America’s economy or trend of economic growth, financial analysts at Barclays said Thursday.

In a post on LinkedIn published Wednesday, the firm’s head of investment strategy in London wrote that economic growth has “little” to do with actions taken by or affecting the White House, thereby insulating markets from potential instability.

“We doubt that capital markets would collapse if President Trump’s administration was endangered, either electorally or indeed legally,” William Hobbs wrote in the post.
