Will impeachment be weaponized in the future?

We've only had three Presidents impeached in our history, but we could see more in the future because impeachment has become a political weapon.

That's because of the way the impeachment of President Trump came about. National Tea Party co-founder Michael Johns says there could be 'revenge' impeachments

"It certainly sets a precedent for such abuses, and there might be an inclination for reciprocity by other parties," Johns explained.

But he doesn't think Republicans would go this route. Instead, he could see a second impeachment of President Trump once this one fails.

"Impeachment, and proponents of it, initiated calls for impeachment, literally, before the President had even taken office," Johns said.

Houston Congressman Al Green, just last month, said there was no limit on how many times they could impeach Trump.
