Trump will most likely resign to avoid impeachment, says former Trump Organization executive
Barbara Res, a former Trump Organization vice president, said that it is important for Trump to not go down in history as a president who was impeached
President Donald Trump will resign or "make some kind of a deal" before the House of Representatives can follow through on articles of impeachment, according to a former Trump Organization executive.
"He does a lot of things to save face," Barbara Res, a former Trump Organization vice president, which speaking to CNN's Realiable Sources on Sunday said. She made the statement in reference to an impeachment inquiry initiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last month against Trump.
Res added that it is important for Trump to not go down in history as a president who was impeached. She, however, cautioned, saying she "could very well be wrong."
“It would be very, very, very bad for him to be impeached. 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 tells me he’ll leave office, he’ll resign. Or make some kind of a deal, even, depending on what comes out," she said.
An impeachment inquiry was launched against Trump after a whistleblower lodged a formal complaint alleging that the president had set a quid pro quo of millions in military aid with the Ukrainian leader for an investigation into his political rival.
The White House subsequently released a transcript of the call which confirmed that Trump asked the foreign leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, his rival and Democratic frontrunner in the 2020 presidential elections.
The former Trump Organization executive added that she believes Trump is "unfit for office" and does not have enough experience needed for the White House.
Res, before the 2016 election, had spoken out against Trump, calling him a "supreme sexist," and accusing him of mistreating women.
Trump, in response to the impeachment inquiry, accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of treason in a series of furious tweets on Sunday, and claimed that she knew House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's "lies and massive frauds." The president also called for both the lawmakers to be impeached for "High Crimes and Misdemeanors and even Treason."
