Though we were all devastated by Boots the 鈥減sychic鈥 Goat鈥檚 errant election prediction (who can we trust if we can鈥檛 trust a psychic goat?!), where he failed, another found vindication. Sort of. Professor Allan Lichtman, AKA 鈥淧rediction Professor,鈥 has accurately called every presidential election since 1984. Um, wow. That鈥檚 why people are listening to what he has to say about Donald Trump. Not only did Lichtman correctly predict the president-elect鈥檚 win, he鈥檚 also saying the Trump will sooner or later be impeached.

impeach Trump

鈥淢y prediction is, based on my gut, that there鈥檚 a very good chance that Donald Trump could face impeachment,鈥 said the political historian who teaches at the American University in Washington (and a dude who has never been wrong when it comes to political predictions), while chatting with CNN.

So why does Lichtman feel this way? Well, among other issues, Donald Trump has always 鈥減layed fast and loose with the law,鈥 and this tactic obviously won鈥檛 work well while leading the country. 鈥淗e has run an illegal charity in New York state. He has made an illegal campaign contribution through that charity. He has used the charity to settle personal business debts. He faces a RICO lawsuit.鈥 And that鈥檚 just the beginning. Lichtman keeps the list going and, yowza.

He also added that it鈥檚 not just the Democrats that may be aiming for impeachment. Trump鈥檚 own party might be out to get him booted, with Lichtman explaining, 鈥淭he Republicans are nervous about Donald Trump. He is a loose cannon. Nobody knows what he really believes or really where he stands. He can鈥檛 be controlled.鈥

No doubt this is going to be a bumpy (controversy-ridden) road ahead.
