I honestly have no idea what it would take for mainstream Republicans to stop enabling Donald.
The Mueller investigation could find concrete evidence that Donald personally colluded with Russian authorities to tip the election and Donald would still have plenty of supporters on Capitol Hill who are willing to protect him from being removed from office. Most Republicans care about one thing - being in power.
Maybe they will jump ship if Democrats retake Congress, but that's a long shot because the Senate map is abysmal for Democrats in 2018 and the House is so gerrymandered that Republicans will almost certainly retain control.
Now, a lot can happen between now and 2020, but I just don't see Republicans jumping ship. Even the ones that have sharply criticized Donald still vote with him 99.9% of the time. They are also showing zero willingness to investigate his business practices or emoluments from foreign governments and businessmen.
The most likely scenario I see is absolutely nothing happening. I don't see enough Republicans jumping ship and moving to reign in Donald. I don't see, even if Democrats retake Congress in 2018, impeachment proceedings being successful because it's extremely difficult to actually remove a President from office. I don't see any other scenario than Donald serving out his full four year term and I can definitely see him being reelected because our outdated voting system continues to allow the minority to overrule the will of the majority.
