The Professor Who Predicted Trump’s Win Also Says He Will Be Impeached


The Washington Post published a follow-up piece about Lichtman’s predictions, explaining that at the end of their September conversation, Lichtman said that he’s “quite certain Trump will give someone grounds for impeachment”:

“I’m going to make another prediction. This one is not based on a system; it’s just my gut. [Republicans] 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.”
