American University professor Allan Lichtman raised a lot of eyebrows when he was the first to predict Trump will win the general election. Now he has a book coming out that will show the final pieces of his Trump story: the President will get impeached, too. POLITICO reports:
Allan Lichtman, a professor at American University, reached meme-status last fall for predicting long before anyone else that Trump would win, using a formula based on the popularity of the party in control of the White House that accurately predicted the eight previous presidential elections. Now Lichtman wants everyone to pay attention to the rest of what came through his crystal ball — that Trump will now be impeached.
Lichtman may have predicted Trump’s win, but he is definitely not a fan. In his book, The Case for Impeachment, he doesn’t hesitate to dive right into the danger Trump poses to America. And according to this expert, there’s no shortage of reasons why:
Lichtman’s list of possible offenses that could get Trump to that point are familiar: charges of treason with Russia, abuse of power and emoluments violations. Lichtman also cites now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, then a senator, who argued that a president could be impeached for offenses committed before he took office. Among those potential offenses, Lichtman lists Trump’s housing violations, charity problems, potential violations of the Cuba embargo and Trump University.
His book isn’t out yet to the general public, but it seems like it’ll be quite the interesting read.
