Professor who tweeted Trump 'must hang' goes on leave for semester

  Professor who tweeted Trump 'must hang' goes on leave for semester Once again, someone learned the hard way that tweets have consequences. A history professor at California State University Fresno who sent an inflammatory tweet about President Trump agreed with the school to take "a voluntary leave of absence" for the rest of the spring semester, effective immediately, the university announced Tuesday. Professor Lars Maischak, 47, sent a tweet on Feb. 18 saying, "To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better." The tweet didn't attract much attention until the far right Breitbart News site posted a story about it on April 8, sparking outrage nationwide. It's been a bumpy road for Maischak ever since. The story touched a nerve with conservatives who have long criticized college faculty for being too left-wing, elitist and out of touch. The Breitbart article said the tweet, along with others from Maischak's account, demonstrates "why universities across the country are now viewed with disdain by average, salt-of-the-earth Americans." The tweet drew the attention of the FBI, the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security and federal investigators contacted Maischak and Fresno State President Joseph Castro, according to the Fresno Bee. Maischak issued a written apology, published by the Bee, and he deleted his Twitter account.

The political historian who predicted President Trump would win the 2016 election says Trump personally reached out to congratulate him on his accurate prediction.

American University professor Allan Lichtman details the communication with Trump in his new book "The Case for Impeachment," Politico reported.

Lichtman wrote that shortly after the election, he got a letter from Trump that read: "Professor - Congrats - good call."

The professor drew attention during the campaign for predicting that Trump would win the 2016 election, based on a formula he created.

But he has come to a conclusion about who is most likely to win — Republican nominee Donald Trump . Professor Allan Lichtman, who wrote the book " Predicting the Next President: The Keys to the White House," uses a series of true/false statements to determine his predictions .

Just days after the election however, Lichtman shared a new prediction: that Trump would be impeached.

His new book elaborates on his predictions and suggests several possible ways Trump could be impeached, including treason charges over possible ties to Russia, abuse of power or offenses from before Trump's inauguration such as housing violations.

To date, no president has been removed from office after being impeached and convicted. Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were successfully impeached but acquitted by the Senate, and Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached.
