Everyone thought American University Professor Allan Lichtman was insane when he predicted that Donald Trump would become the President-Elect. But he was one of the few people who saw it coming. He has predicted every presidential victory since 1984 using his system called, Keys to the Whitehouse.
“I’m going to make another prediction,” said Lichtman to the Washington Post. He believes that Trump will be impeached by his own Republican party. “This [prediction] 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.”
After Trump won, Google searches for “how to impeach a president” increased 5,000%.
How likely is this? Who knows but we do know that we were definitely blindsided by the Trump win.
