George Mason University law professor J.W. Verret, a former member of President Donald Trump’s transition team, said on Monday that he has no doubt Trump will be impeached again.

CNN co-anchor Jim Sciutto asked Verret if he believes the president will seek further assistance from foreign governments in the 2020 election now that he has been acquitted by the Senate for attempting to shake down Ukraine.

Verret said yes, and he believes Trump will also face another impeachment.

“I think there’s no question but that he will attempt to do it,” the former Trump transition official said. “It’s shameful to see what happened to Lt. Col. Vindman. I’m not sorry to see Sondland go, he didn’t acquit himself well. He participated in a violation of law. It took two or three times to come forward to Congress. The Vindman firing isn’t acceptable. The only thing to prevent Trump to collude with a foreign power for a third time looks like front-runners, probably Russia doesn’t have any dirt on them. Maybe they can hack the servers. It’s worrisome.”

“He will be impeached again, I don’t know for what, and it will be legitimate,” Verret continued. “It could be for things personal having to do with his company.”
