The world’s largest betting exchange was offering near 5-1 odds on US President Trump leaving office this year amidst testimony by former FBI Director James Comey claiming he was asked by Trump to end to his investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's ties to Russia.
All major networks in the US were covering the Comey testimony live Thursday with watch parties throughout Washington DC. The US capital’s famed Union Pub was said to be completely packed. Many bars and pubs throughout the United States were treating the Comey testimony in a similar fashion to a Super Bowl viewing party.
In anticipation of Trump tweeting during the testimony, online gambling site BetOnline had been offering a few tweet prop bets including the OVER/UNDER on whether the US President tweets the following words: “Comey”, “Fake”, “Dishonest” and “Believe Me”.
At the time this was going to press at 11:15 am EST, Trump was yet to tweet.
The testimony was expected to last until approximately 4 pm EST.
