We should be sceptical about whether Donald Trump would really be impeached, as it would take a lot of nerve for Republicans to vote for it.

That's according to academic Simon Radford, who made the comments after Trump claimed he is the greatest victim of a witch hunt in US history.

Radford, who specialises in US politics, told Julia Hartley-Brewer a lot of Republicans are admitting that it is time for a special prosecutor to look into the Trump-Russia allegations, and it proves there are grounds for an inquiry.

However, he believes they would be unlikely to vote for impeachment because it would affect their political future

Radford also added that leaks against the President will continue and Trump has declared war on both the FBI and CIA, which won't do him any good.
