No one thought it could be possible, but Donald Trump will become the next President of the United States. However, before Trump can make it to the White House, he is facing a strong challenge in a federal courtroom.

Trump charges

Over the year and a half that Trump ran his campaign, he dominated the headlines, and often for negative reasons. One story that was highlighted was the Trump University fraud trial that is set to begin on November 28.

Over 5,000 former students are being represented by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who claim that they were scammed by the school out of as much as $35,000 each. Trump faces charges of fraud and racketeering, which legal experts say could give Congress the constitutional right to start impeachment. LawNewz reported on Wednesday that Trump could face impeachment if he is found guilty, while others also push to remove him from office before he even makes it there.

University of Utah law professor Christopher Lewis Peterson wrote a detailed essay on whether or not Trump could be legally removed from office depending on the results of the Trump University Trial. Peterson cited Article II of the U.S. Constitution which gives Congress the right to impeach Trump if he is found guilty of "high crimes and misdemeanors." While it's unlikely that a Republican-controlled Congress would do so, it would be possible and could be used as an "out" for the GOP to remove a president that many in the establishment fought hard against since the start of the election cycle.

Moore's take

One of the loudest critics of a Trump presidency has been liberal filmmaker Michael Moore. While many doubted that a Trump victory would be possible, Moore encouraged liberals and other voters not to take the former host of "The Apprentice" likely, warning them that if they didn't get out and vote, that Trump would make it to the White House.

In a detailed Facebook post expressing his thoughts about the election results, Moore pushed for voters to rise up and demand impeachment.

"We must organize the apparatus that will bring charges against him when he violates his oath and breaks the law," Moore writes, before adding, "Then we must remove him from office."

Moving forward

As Trump meets with President Obama on Thursday to discuss the transitioning period into the office of commander in chief, the billionaire real estate mogul will also prepare to head to a courtroom and defend himself from the charges brought on through the aforementioned lawsuit.

It's unknown at this time what will happen in the case, but it's a bad start for a president-elect to already be facing a potential impeachment.
