Professor Who First Predicted Trump’s Victory Just Predicted His Impeachment As Well

After his stunning defeat of Hillary Clinton in November, President-elect Trump took the time out of his transition planning to write a letter to American University Professor, Allan Lichtman, congratulating him for being the first to predict the outcome of the election even when polls declared Hillary a ‘yuge’ favorite: “Professor – Congrats – good call.”

That said, Trump may not be so enthusiastic about Lichtman’s next big prediction which he spells out in a new, soon-to-be-released book entitled “The Case for Impeachment.” Within the new book, Lichtman, who is not a Trump fan despite his prediction, “explains how Trump threatens the institutions and traditions that have made America safe and free for 230 years.”

Unfortunately, unlike his novel approach to predicting presidential elections, Lichtman’s “Case for Impeachment” seems to be a disappointing regurgitation of tired mainstream media narratives including treason with Russia (an argument Trump has pretty much rendered obsolete over the past week or so) and emoluments violations. Per Politico:

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.

Imagine, Lichtman writes, if Trump gets Congress to lift sanctions against Russia by lying about some promise made by Vladimir Putin, or shakes the economy by lying about Bureau of Labor Statistics employment numbers.

It’s all part of a brief — designed to be damning — tour through Trump’s history. It includes section headings like “Trump Towers Become Vacant Lots” and “Lying His Way to the Presidency.” It eventually leads Lichtman to the conclusion that Trump might serve himself up for impeachment: “Trump’s disregard for lying in sworn testimony, examined in the context of the Bill Clinton precedent, shows how Trump’s opponents could set an impeachment trap for him through a civil lawsuit.”

Of course, Hillary and Obama were not guilty of any of the alleged offenses listed above…certainly Hillary couldn’t be accused of having “charity problems.”

    Ummm…Hummm, did this idiot just say ‘the institutions and traditions that made us safe for over two hundred years’??? NO damned wonder he/it is a university professor, the MF is dumb as a phucking stump. How the hell have we been free and safe with the morons that we have had in control of this nation’s destiny? We have not seen a president since George Washington that was not “owned” by someone until Donald Trump. If we are fortunate enough that God will continue to look down on us, maybe, just maybe he (Trump) can save this republic. Hopefully, down the line, President Trump will see fit to have this idiot and all such as him/it removed from the educational system and require educators to take an oath of allegiance to America when they begin to teach in any grade from K-16.

    On the other hand…Mr. Lick-man, thanks for the observation that Donald Trump would, in fact, overrun that sow Clinton that America would have one last chance to clean up the swamp called District of Criminals.

    May the prayers of the people of America have a positive effect on the next four years of this Presidency

    Lick-man … is a classic example of a “bad Jew.” The kind that give Gods chosen people a bad name. He’s nothing but a libtard butthead, that is using his 15 minutes of fame to make $$ on a book that does what all “bad Jews” do … bad mouth any strong white Christian power figure … because they have an “inferiority complex.” Just think … your sons and daughters go into student loan debt to be brainwashed by zeros like this. 🙂

    We need an enlarged 15 state version of The Confederate States Of America to REALLY fix things.
