Allan Lichtman is a political historian and Distinguished Professor of History at American University. Lichtman predicts that an impeachment investigation will be launched and lays out the factors that, he believes, will lead to Trump’s removal from office.

From Robert Mueller’s Russia inquiry, to President Trump’s foreign policy moves and conflicts of interest– not to mention his Twitter account – Lichtman warns that Trump’s rogue presidency is approaching a critical mass of violations that could trigger his impeachment – but only if the American people demand it. 

Lichtman’s new book, “The Case for Impeachment,” contains new material assessing how Trump’s first year in office has strengthened the case for his impeachment, and explaining exactly how he could be removed from office. 

Year one of the Trump administration is wrapping up.
