Lichtman, who correctly predicted Donald Trump's election, now predicts Trump's impeachment based on his campaign's relationship with Russia, conflicts of interest, and other "high crimes and misdemeanors." Lichtman's analysis of the impeached President Andrew Johnson and the disgraced President Richard Nixon demonstrate impeachment is not as far-fetched as it seems. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
