In 1974 Richard Nixon resigned from his position as President of the United States rather than face certain impeachment. A former Trump Organization executive thinks Donald Trump may make the same move. And she's not the only one after he made certain comments to other Republicans in a closed-door meeting.
There are currently enough enough members of the House suggesting they will vote to impeach Trump for him to be impeached, though no formal vote has been taken.
While impeachment has been on the table since the Democrats won control of the House back in November, they've held several investigations but just couldn't ever find enough support for impeachment within House Democrats or the American public.
The latest scandal, though, may be one more than the public and lawmakers are willing to take. A whistleblower filed a complaint of a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. A transcript of the call has been released that backs up the complaint that Trump leveraged U.S. aid to Ukraine, asking Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Barbara Res, a former Trump Organization executive, was a construction engineer on some of his key projects, with one of them being Trump Tower. She wrote, "All Alone on the 68th Floor: How One Woman Changed the Face of Construction," a tome about her many years working for Trump.
"He does a lot of things to save face," she said as a guest on CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday.
"It would be very, very, very bad for him to be impeached," she continued. "I don't know that he'll be found guilty, but I don't 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."
She prefaced this, however, by saying she was hesitant to even speak on the topic, as she "could very well be wrong."
"He was always very quick to react; he never responded to anything, always reacted to it and got very, very angry," she explained.
"He had this notion that everything that happened that was bad was directed at him, like they were after him, people were after him."
Res added that despite her time working with him, there have still been actions of Trump's she wouldn't have expected and that his behavior has gotten worse than when she worked for him, such as his lack of concern that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
"That was a stupid thing to say, and I never thought of him as stupid," she claims.
But still, he has made many moves resembling the man she worked with. "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 of his comment from the last campagin.
She thought he was unfit for office when he ran in 2016, "and not necessarily because he didn't have the experience, you know, lots of different things."
Others feel that he will resign as well after private remarks that he shared in a call with House Republicans, according to sources. He said impeachment is a "bad thing to have on your resumé."
One source remembers Trump saying impeachment is a "bad thing to have on your resumé," while others remember him saying, "you don't want it [impeachment] on your resumé."
After the comment, he said, "But it's going to make Kevin speaker," meaning House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) would become speaker of the House.
