Scholar Allan Lichtman is known as the ‘Prediction Professor.’ He has correctly predicted the outcome of all US Presidential Elections for 30 years in a row. He rose to international fame in 2016 when he foretold early on that Donald Trump, at that time in a crowded field of 9 Republican candidates still, would win the overall election against Ms Hillary Clinton, at that moment still battling off Mr Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination.
He has now made a new prediction for 2019, claiming that it is highly likely that US President Donald “Trump will be impeached.”
Mr Lichtman’s reasoning has changed (he earlier foresaw Mr Trump easily taking on a crowded field of Democrats for the 2020 Presidential election before) as the new Democratic-run House convenes on January 3 next year, and he claims that “impeaching Trump moves from theory to reality.”
"If Mueller comes up with some devastating findings, the Democratic base will demand impeachment," said Professor Lichtman. "I think Trump is in grave peril from the Mueller probe."
The prediction specialist claims that the latest findings of the Mueller investigation show that more indictments will soon follow.
"I can't believe Mueller has been working all this time just to say: Sorry, nothing to see here."

"I think there are going to be some very serious findings from Mueller directly tying the Trump campaign to the Russians."
Mr Lichtman furthermore pointed to the telling remark that Florida Senator Marco Rubio dropped when the White House administration hinted that it would try and pardon former campaign manager Paul Manafort. At the time, Mr Rubio, who ran against Trump during the Republican primaries in 2016 said doing so would be a ‘terrible mistake,’ and made it understand that the Republican party would then be forced to act.
Mr Licthman: "The way in which Trump could be impeached and removed would be if Republicans think he is going to drag them down with him."
"They don't have any personal loyalty to Trump. They are worried about antagonizing his base and losing Republican primaries. But if they think he is going to be a political liability, they may be willing to abandon him."
Lastly, Mr Licthman noted, the reasoning for the Republicans to support Mr Trump’s impeachment would be similar to the fall of former Republican President Nixon’s fall from grace back in the 1970s.
"Republicans supported Richard Nixon until the evidence became so overwhelming that he was a tremendous liability to them," said Lichtman.
"I am not saying he won't survive, but I am saying it's unlikely."
Lastly, he added, "let's not forget: if Trump is removed, they don't get Nancy Pelosi as president; they get Mike Pence, someone whom most Republicans in Congress vastly prefer to Trump."
