Democrats have some "good opportunities" in this year's midterm elections to regain control over the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Sunday, and if that happens, Republicans and Trump will face a "real problem," as one of the Democrats' main goals will be to push for the president's impeachment.

"Their goal is to first and foremost stop the president’s agenda," Lewandowski told radio talk show host John Catsimatidis in an interview on "The Cat's Roundtable" on New York's AM 970. "And, I think, their secondary goal is to file articles of impeachment against this president, which are completely unfounded."

Democrats are "exceptionally motivated" to run campaigns against Trump, said Lewandowski, who headed Trump's campaign from 2015 until he was fired just before the 2016 Republican National Convention.

"If you look at the numbers, I think we've got 32 or 33 Republican members of Congress who have already announced they are not seeking reelection," Lewandowski said. "The problem with that is the Democrats only have to take back 24 seats in the House in order to take over, and if that happens, we've got a real problem."

If that happens, they "may have some good opportunities in front of them in the 2018 cycle," he added.

There is already a push for Trump's impeachment, led by Democratic Reps. Steve Cohen of Tennessee and Al Green of Texas, but party leaders are not on board yet with them, notes The Hill. However, 68 Democrats voted in December to launch impeachment proceedings against Trump.

"Electing a president of the United States is the most important act American citizens take in setting the policies of their country. That should not be overturned except for the most egregious and demonstrable facts," House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Maryland, said after the vote. "Do we disagree with [Trump's] policies? We do. But disagreeing with the policies is not enough to overturn an election — a free and fair election — of the American people."
