Barbara Res, a former vice president of Trump Organization stated that the president would prefer to resign in order to avoid a political trial (impeachment).

Spanish news agency EFE disclosed this in New York on Sunday, under the signature of Clare Duffy.

“He does many things to save face”, the author told CNN.

“It would be very, very bad for him to be impeached”, Res said.

“I don’t know whether he would be found guilty, I think that’s what this panic is about, and my instinct is that he will leave office or he’ll resign”.

Then she added: “Or he will make a kind of deal, even depending on what comes out”.

The former executive of his organization knows Donald Trump very well, she worked as a construction engineer on some of his key projects, like the tower named after him.

Author of “All Alone on the 68th Floor: How One Woman Changed the Face of Construction”, which chronicles her time working for the president, while he ran his company.

She has criticized him for years, even during the 2016 campaign, when she said that he was not fit for the post.

When do her comments come?

As the impeachment probe over Trump’s interactions with Ukraine’s president intensify.

House Democrats subpoenaed the White House on Friday as part of the probe into Trump.

And on Sunday, the lawyer for the first whistleblower who accused him said that now he’s representing a second whistleblower.

Press outlets comment that the inquiry has forced Trump to post “a tweetstorm” to defend himself and to attack both Democratic lawmakers and critics within his own party.

Since a figure so close to Trump as Barbara Res does not rule out his resignation, this adds a fact of great interest amid the crisis that erodes Washington millimeter by millimeter.
