A former Trump Organization executive says she thinks President Donald Trump may resign rather than face possible removal from office by impeachment.

"He does a lot of things to save face," Barbara Res, a former Trump Organization vice president, told CNN's Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources Sunday.

"It would be very, very, very bad for him to be impeached," Res said. "I don't know that he'll be found guilty but I don't know that he wants to be impeached. I think that's what this panic is about. And my gut [instinct] is that he'll leave office, he'll resign. Or make some kind of a deal, even, depending on what comes out."

Odd markings, ellipses fuel doubts about the ‘rough transcript’ of Trump’s Ukraine call

  Odd markings, ellipses fuel doubts about the ‘rough transcript’ of Trump’s Ukraine call Current and former U.S. officials studying the document pointed to several elements that, they say, indicate that the document may have been handled in an unusual way. Those include the use of ellipses — punctuation indicating that information has been deleted for clarity or other reasons — that traditionally have not appeared in summaries of presidential calls with foreign leaders, according to the current and former officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the elaborate, non-public process.

" Res said she was hesitant to share her opinion, because "I could very well be wrong." " I think she is definitely WRONG. The reason Trump ran for the presidency was he is deeply concerned about where we were going as a nation. Trump is a very wealth man in his 70s, even in best case scenario

A former Trump Organization executive said Sunday that she believes President Trump will resign or "make some kind of a deal" before the House of But Democrats – led by Schiff – claim Trump withheld essential military funding from Kiev as part of quid pro quo to get dirt on a political opponent.

Res said she was hesitant to share her opinion, because "I could very well be wrong."

But Res has first-hand experience working with Trump. She was the construction engineer on some of his key projects, including Trump Tower, and she is the author of "All Alone on the 68th Floor: How One Woman Changed the Face of Construction," which partly chronicles her time working for the President while he ran his company.

She has been critical of Trump in recent years, including during the 2016 campaign, when she said he wasn't fit for office.

Her comments come as the impeachment inquiry over Trump's interactions with Ukraine's president intensify. House Democrats on Friday subpoenaed the White House as part of the investigation into Trump. And on Sunday, the lawyer for the first intelligence whistleblower to come forward with accusations concerning Trump and Ukraine said he is now representing a second whistleblower regarding the President's actions.

Trump, the TV president, finally meets a media story he can’t control

  Trump, the TV president, finally meets a media story he can’t control Accustomed to manipulating the news, he’s watching now — and so is AmericaDonald Trump’s presidency would have been impossible without his reality-TV fame from NBC’s “The Apprentice.

A former Trump Organization executive said she thinks President Trump would resign before the impeachment inquiry brought on by a whistleblower complaint is complete. Such a move would mirror that of President Richard Nixon, who resigned from office before his own impeachment following the

The inquiry has sent Trump into a tweetstorm in recent days, defending himself and denouncing both Democratic lawmakers and critics within his own party.

Res said she is not surprised by Trump's reaction.

"He was always very quick to react, he never responded to anything, always reacted to it and got very, very angry," Res said. "He had this notion that everything that happened that was bad was directed at him, like they were after him, people were after him."

She said there have, however, been some elements of the Trump campaign and presidency that she wouldn't have expected, saying his behavior has gotten worse than when she worked for him. Res was surprised to see reports that Trump told Russian officials he was unconcerned about the country's interference in the 2016 US presidential election because, she said, "that was a stupid thing to say and I never thought of him as stupid."

Trump demands Schiff resign over account of Ukraine call

  Trump demands Schiff resign over account of Ukraine call Trump demands Schiff resign over account of Ukraine call President Trump on Friday demanded House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) "immediately" resign from Congress for reading what the congressman described as a parody of the president's phone call with Ukraine's leader that is at the center of a whistleblower complaint.In a series of tweets early Friday, Trump accused Schiff of lying to Congress and "fraudulently" reciting a version of the call that made it "sound horrible" and made the president appear "guilty.

Former Trump Organization executive Barbara Res , now a critic of the president , says "I don't think he wants to be impeached. I think that's what this Although wary of making a prediction, she says , "My gut tells me that he'll leave office, he'll resign . Or make some kind of a deal, even, depending on

So no, Trump will never resign . He will stay in office until the US Marshals arrive to “perp” walk him These would be direct results of his Executive Orders because he can’t blame Congress or the At some point, Trump will commit enough impeachable actions that the Democrats will introduce articles

But most of the time, Res said the President is still the Donald Trump she knew while working for him for over a decade.

"This is Trump — I say Trump Squared because he's had, since I knew him, many, many years of fame and fortune and getting richer and now he actually does believe he's a stable genius and he does believe he could shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue, and so far it looks like he can," she said. The president famously said during the 2016 campaign that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue, and his supporters would not abandon him.

As for Trump's fitness for office, Res said she agrees with George Conway, the husband of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, who published a piece in The Atlantic earlier this week saying Trump is unfit for office.

"I thought that when he was running for office," Res said. "And not necessarily for the mental reasons that you talk about but because he didn't have the experience, you know, lots of different things."
