Back in September, I wrote about Allan Lichtman, a professor at American University, and how he has chosen correctly, every President elected since 1984 using a 13 point system he devised. He said any candidate who loses on six of the thirteen keys will not win the election. Hillary Clinton lost on six.
He was right.
The professor also made another prediction and this one is not based on any system. He says the Republicans will impeach Donald Trump:
At the end of our September conversation, Lichtman made another call: that if elected, Trump would eventually be impeached by a Republican Congress that would prefer a President Mike Pence — someone whom establishment Republicans know and trust.
“I’m going to make another prediction,” he said. “This one is not based on a system; it’s just my gut. They don’t want Trump as president, because they can’t control him. He’s unpredictable. They’d love to have Pence — an absolutely down-the-line, conservative, controllable Republican. And I’m quite certain Trump will give someone grounds for impeachment, either by doing something that endangers national security or because it helps his pocketbook.”
Here is a video with more:
He’s not the first to already be talking impeachment about Trump. That said, even I don’t think Trump is going to have come this far only to do something that rises to the level of impeachment. But I’ve been wrong about Trump. Lichtman was right.
Time will tell.
