Former Trump Organization Executive Barbara Res: Trump Will Resign To "Save Face"


CNN: Former Trump Organization executive, Barbara Res, says she thinks President Donald Trump may resign rather than face possible removal from office by impeachment.

BRIAN STELTER, CNN: And when Kellyanne Conway's husband says he's unfit for office, do you agree with that assessment?

RES: I do, yes. But I thought that when he was running and not for necessarily the mental reasons that they talked about but because he didn't have the experience, you know, lots of different things.

STELTER: So how do you see this ending now? Does it end at the ballot box in a year, does he make it to a second term, does he resign as a result of impeachment? What do you think?

RES: You know, it's funny people ask me that and I'm thinking, you know, it's hard to say my opinion on national T.V. because I could very well be wrong. But let me -- let me tell you what I thought. I mean, I think that he does a lot of things to save face and I could give you examples but we don't have time. But I mean, there are some things that you know he can't control and he's now at the point where he can't control this. He can't do anything about this.

It would be very, very, very bad for him to be impeached. I don't know that he'd be found guilty but I don't think he wants to be impeached. I think -- 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.
