WATCH: Keith Olbermann explains how he expects Trump’s resignation will go down
Broadcasting legend Keith Olbermann has a provocative new video piecing together a predicted end game for the resignation of President Donald Trump.
The segment began with the reading of a tweet from CNBC’s John Harwood, who Olbermann described as a small-c conservative journalist.

Olbermann went to list a number of recent news items about the investigation into Russian collusion and obstruction of justice.
“For a while now, I have thought the Trump presidency would end suddenly,” Olbermann said. The longtime broadcaster then told a humorous story from 1998, when NBC asked Olbermann to step-up for political coverage with Tim Russert because it was thought Bill Clinton might be resigning that very evening.
“This was, of course, the Clinton-Lewinski story,” Olbermann explained. “And it was breaking that suddenly and unexpectedly and for weeks now I have been anticipating that Trump’s last day in office will dawn like all the others. And then around dinner time it will suddenly break that he is about to resign.”
“I don’t know if that’s next Tuesday or next year, but I think whenever it is, that is what it will feel like,” Olbermann predicted.
He then re-read part of Harwood’s tweet, “prediction just in from top Republican strategist: Trump resigns ‘once Mueller closes in on him and the family.'”
“Would that work for you?” Olbermann asked. “Yeah it would!”
