An American University professor who has an unblemished record of correctly predicting presidential elections since 1984 – including that of Donald Trump – made a more startling forecast Friday: that Trump would be impeached, The Washington Post reports.

Allan Lichtman nailed the Trump victory based on the idea that elections are "primarily a reflection on the performance of the party in power."

"I'm going to make another prediction," Lichtman told the Post.

"This one is not based on a system; it's just my gut."

"They [a Republican Congress] don't want Trump as president, because they can't control him," he said. "He's unpredictable. They'd love to have [Vice President-elect Mike] 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," he added.

The Hill reports Lichtman isn't the first one to predict Trump could be impeached.

University of Utah Law Professor Christopher Lewis Peterson wrote a 23-page article explaining the legal reasons Congress should impeach Trump, the outlet reported.

And documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, in remarks to MSNBC, guessed Trump will either be impeached or resign before his term is up.

No U.S. president has been removed from office by impeachment and conviction. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were successfully impeached, but acquitted by the Senate; Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached.
