    Trump has a scandalous history of lawsuits. Furthermore, he seems to lack the qualifications for being an effective POTUS. He's also pretty set in his ways to be undergoing drastic character development any time soon. So, will he eventually face impeachment? Here's what Alan Lichtman, a political scientist who predicted Trump's victory had to say about it:

    Allan Lichtman uses a historically based system of what he calls "keys" to predict election results ahead of time. The keys are explained in-depth in Lichtman's book "Predicting the Next President: The Keys to the White House 2016." In our conversations in September and October, he outlined how President Obama's second term set the Democrats up for a tight race, and his keys tipped the balance in Trump's favor, even if just barely.

    At the end of our September conversation, Lichtman made another call: That if elected, Trump would eventually be impeached by a Republican Congress that would prefer a President Mike Pence -- someone who establishment Republicans know and trust.

    "I'm going to make another prediction," he said. "This one is not based on a system, it's just my gut. They don't want Trump as president, because they can't control him. He's unpredictable. They'd love to have Pence -- an absolutely down the line, conservative, controllable Republican. And I'm quite certain Trump will give someone grounds for impeachment, either by doing something that endangers national security or because it helps his pocketbook."

    I file this question under the category of wishful thinking. I'll be thrilled if we are rid of him in any manner. He's a vile, dirty man and using the legal system as a fix all just emphasized that he doesn't deal with people or problems.... He hires another to do that.

    There are stories about a sex party where he was said to have raped a then 13 year old. Story went away and because of serious threats that were made against the accuser. She was afraid to testify. Who knows which parties are trying to settle her down to proceed. If that was a case where he was found guilty...... Many on this site would need to reopen their eyes because it may strongly suggest that there is a God.

    I have to believe that could be a cancer to bring the evil man down. Even the tea party cannot support a grown man having drug induced sex with a 13 yr old even if he hates all of the right people.

    T.J. I think he will run into problems with his dealings; right now there is already an case about the hotel in Washington. He leased that to the Government for a 10 year lease. Thus he leased it now to himself? We call that conflict of interest, I guess.

    Then on top of that the "status" of the kids as well security clearance and their wheeling and dealing and his influence on that. It will become an huge "wasp" nest for sure. Who is going to investigate all of this as well prosecute if needed????

    He is hiring people that will make it impossible to get any jobs let alone good paying jobs. Trump is well aware of the false jobs promise when he said keep wages low.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Trump winds up being removed from office, but we really should be careful what we wish for because the Vice President elect more scary than Trump.
