"I think you'll see a movement to impeach the president if Democrats retake the House, sure," Beychok, the president of American Bridge 21st Century, told Hill.TV's Buck Sexton and Krystal Ball on "Rising." 
 
However, Beychok said impeachment would not be a major talking point for Democratic candidates in local races. 
 
"I think obviously this is going to be something that people talk about. I don't think in the next 75 days that this will be an issue that you see Democrats crying in local races, talking about as a message," he continued. 
 
Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen told a judge on Tuesday that he violated campaign finance laws "in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office," an indirect reference to the president.

"Impeachment has to spring from something else," Pelosi said. "If and when the information emerges about that, we’ll see." 
 
"It’s not a priority on the agenda going forward unless something else comes forward," she added.
