The answer is 'no' unless his base of support collapses and I don't think we're there yet.

Does it mean the possibility of winning the house goes up marginally? Yes, it does. But polls released mid-next week will begin to tell that tale. We're 75 days out from election day.

Even taking the house back, however, doesn't mean that he'd be removed. But he will be investigated. Endlessly. And we'll see the Republican congressional leadership bitch about it as much as the Democratic leadership bitched about the Obama investigations. So turns the wheel.

On the other hand...as a former journalist, I'd love to see them subpeona Trump's tax records and other financials. Even if they're presented in closed session the minute they're in the hands of congressional staffers you can time the leaks with a stopwatch.
