During a panel discussion on ABC's This Week, GOP consultant Alex Castellanos warned President Donald Trump he needs to lawyer up with better attorneys if he hopes to fend off special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and possible impeachment.


Speaking with host George Stephanopoulos, Democratic consultant Donna Brazile surprisingly had a few nice things to say about Trump before adding that his lawyers are lacking, based upon all the chaos of the past week.

"I'm pleased he expelled those Russian spies and closed the consulate in Seattle," Brazile explained. "And I'm pleased there's money in the omnibus to help state and local government, but he needs good legal advisers -- he cannot keep shooting from the hip."

Conservative consultant Castellanos seconded her opinion with a dire warning for the embattled president.

"It's hard to believe that President Trump, who has flouted his way to business success, that Robert Mueller is not going to dig up something in Trump's complicated financial history," the conservative suggested. "It's hard to believe when Republicans lose the House in 2018, maybe by 30 or 40 seats, that the House is maybe not going to impeach him. It's also hard to believe the U.S. Senate is not going to be scared to death and is not going to take a serious look."

"Trump needs to get a good legal team now because the storm is coming," he cautioned.
