Jim VandeHei, the co-founder and CEO of media company Axios, said during an MSNBC panel Thursday morning that if Democrats retake the House after the 2018 midterm elections, they will impeach President Trump.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski asked VandeHei about the departure of White House Counsel Don McGahn and claims that McGahn’s departure was linked to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“We had heard it would happen after the Kavanaugh hearings, and the president first denied it; then he went on to confirm it,” VandeHei said.

VandeHei then pointed out that four out of five of McGahn’s deputies have left or are also leaving the White House, calling it a “really big problem inside the White House,” and added that the White House is struggling to fill these positions.

“If Democrats win the House, he’s going to be impeached. They’re going to try to impeach him, and you’re going to need lawyers who understand the impeachment process and put a lot of prior planning into it. If you don’t, you make mistakes,” VandeHei said.
