“There is little reason to expect a respite in the White House drama.  Ex-FBI Director Comey is set to release his tell-all book and give a TV interview in April.  Trump is trying to hire more lawyers.  There is talk of a Summit with the Russian leader, despite the suspicions of collusion, Facebook is likely to face more scrutiny over its role in Russian election meddling, Mueller is not going away and in fact, will loom larger.  The approaching mid-term elections are likely to heighten fears of erratic behaviour.  If Democrats take control of one or both houses, the focus on the Mueller investigation is likely to increase, raising the odds of impeachment proceedings.”

“Political uncertainty at times appears to have weakened the USD, although it has appeared to shake-off such developments in recent weeks.  We continue to see the approach of mid-term elections heightening risk potentially undermining the USD.”
