A veteran Republican strategist on Sunday warned that “a storm is coming” for Donald Trump and that it’s “hard” to believe the special counsel investigation won’t dig up “something” illicit in the president’s long financial history.
Alex Castellans, who worked on the presidential campaigns of George W. Bush, Mitt Romney and Bob Dole, urged the president to waste no time building a strong legal team.
And if Democrats take control of the U.S. House of Representatives in the mid-term elections in 2018, there’s a strong chance Trump will be impeached or forced to reign, Castellanos said on ABC’s This Week .
“It’s hard to believe that someone like Donald Trump, who has been a disrupter all his life, who has flouted his way to business success, that Robert Mueller is not going to dig up something in Trump’s complicated financial history to say look, the president of the United States did this and it was wrong,” Castellanos said. “And it’s hard to believe then that when Republicans lose the House in 2018, maybe by 40 or 50 seats, that House is not going to impeach him.”
Castellanos added: “It’s hard to believe then that when Republicans lose the House in 2018, maybe by 40 or 50 seats, that House is not going to impeach him.”
Castellanos offered Trump urgent advice: “So get good legal help now, because the storm is coming.”
