(KFTK) - A former executive of Trump Organization believes President Donald Trump will resign or "make some kind of a deal" to avoid going down in history as a president who was impeached. 

Barbara Res, former Trump Organization vice president, told CNN on Sunday she "could very well be wrong," but "he does a lot of things to save face."

House Democrats leading an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine may have fresh information to work with after a new whistleblower stepped forward with what the person’s lawyer said were firsthand knowledge of key events.

"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," Res says. "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."

Res has been critical of President Trump in the past, like in 2016 when she called him a "supreme sexist" and claimed he mistreated women.

Democrats have zeroed in on the State Department in the opening phase of their impeachment investigation. The Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees have already interviewed Kurt Volker, a former special envoy to Ukraine who provided the text messages, and least two other witnesses are set for depositions this week: Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, and Marie Yovanovitch, who was abruptly ousted as the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine in May.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., one of Trump’s most vocal backers, provided perhaps the strongest defense of the Republican president. He said there was nothing wrong with Trump’s July conversation with Ukraine President Volodymyr  Zelenskiy and said the accusations look like a "political setup."
