Assuming he lasts that long, President Donald Trump is in danger of being impeached after the 2018 midterms if the Democrats take control on Congress, Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt warned on Tuesday.
With the White House reeling from two indictments handed down by special counsel Robert Mueller — and another aide pleading guilty to lying to the FBI — the Fox political analyst said that the Democrats see an opening to take Trump down if the GOP suffers huge losses in the next election.
Speaking with host Harris Faulkner, Stirewalt painted a portrait of a president under siege.
“There is real danger for the president lurking out there,” Stirewalt cautioned the Fox News host. “Republicans — if they lose control of Congress — there is a very strong chance that Donald Trump will be impeached.”
“You think so?” a startled Fualkner asked.
“These are politicians,” the editor observer explained.“When Republicans impeached Bill Clinton I’m sure there were other things that the American people wished that they would have focused on, but they focused on satisfying a bloodthirsty base.”
He then speculated, “I’m sure there would be many calls among Democrats to do the same. And that is the real danger for Trump.”

Seth Meyers: You know Trump isn’t the chief law enforcement officer because he couldn’t pass the physical
"Late Night" host Seth Meyers warned that the United States is sliding into authoritarianism under President Donald Trump.
Sounding the alarm Wednesday evening, Meyers cited reports that Trump was making lists of disloyal people, purging them from their jobs, hiring unqualified cronies in top posts, and claiming he has the right to interfere in criminal cases.
While speaking to the press last week, Trump even announced that he's allowed to be involved in all criminal cases because he's the chief law enforcement officer of the United States. It's actually a title used for the attorney general.
Conservative columnist nails the infectious diseases the Trump White House is suffering from
On Wednesday, conservative columnist Max Boot revealed the "diseases" at the heart of President Donald Trump's administration that are weakening their capacity to respond to the very real disease threat from coronavirus.
Simply put: Fevered nationalism, hatred of the civil service, and a pathological desire to erase the legacy of President Barack Obama.
"Covid-19 has already infected more than 80,000 people in 37 countries, causing more than 2,600 deaths, and experts doubt it will slow in the spring," wrote Boot. "That a virus that started in China could have a bad impact on the United States should be no surprise: Diseases don’t respect borders any more than terrorists or trade flows do. Transnational threats require transnational solutions. To cite but one example, many of the medicines and medical supplies that Americans need, including N95 face masks, come from China."
Trump’s health secretary learned Pence was taking over coronavirus outbreak moments before press conference
President Donald Trump apparently left Secretary Alex Azar out of the loop on Vice President Mike Pence taking over the coronavirus response.
According to the Washington Post, Azar was "blindsided" by the decision, according to five people familiar with the incident. Azar learned about it moments before the press conference this afternoon.
Pence said that he would run a task force at the Department of Health and Human Services, which Azar is in charge of.
