The professor who predicted President Donald Trump's election now foresees him loosing his seat to Vice President Mike Pence.

Allan Lichtman, Distinguished Professor of History at American University, invented a method of using the popularity of the party that holds the White House to predict the results of the presidential election. He chose Trump, a Republican, over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton months before the election took place, based on former President Barack Obama's final term.

In his new book, "The Case of Impeachment," "he focuses on the 45th President of the United States and his next forecast, that it is not a question of if President Trump will be impeached, but a question of when," HarperCollins spokesperson Shelby Meizlik said in a statement, Time Magazine reported.

Lichtman claims that Trump will be dragged down by questions about his connections to Russia and conflicts of interest from his business ties. He first made the prediction in September to The Washington Post, saying congressional Republicans "don't want Trump as president, because they can't control him."

He added that Trump is "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."

In his upcoming book, Lichtman provides a checklist of ways to avoid impeachments, including fact checking, treating women respectfully, lending support to the Paris Climate agreement and to "add a shrink to the White House physicians."

He also advises the president to "curb the Mussolini act" by ousting adviser Steve Bannon, according to Politico, which received an advance copy.

Lichtman concludes that "an impeachment and trial could benefit the nation," citing the case of President Andrew Johnson.

"Justice will be realized in today's America not through revolution, but by the Constitution's peaceful remedy of impeachment," he says, "but only if the people demand it."
