He won’t do it for the good and sufficient reason that the Department of Justice has a long-standing legal opinion that sitting presidents may not be indicted. First issued in 1973 during the Nixon era, the policy was reaffirmed in 2000, during the Clinton era. These rules bind all Department of Justice employees, and Mueller, in the end, is a Department of Justice employee. More to the point, if we know anything about Mueller, we think we know that he follows the rules—all of them. Even the ones that restrict him in ways he would prefer they not. And if he were to choose not to follow the rules, that, in turn, would be a reasonable justification for firing him. So … the special counsel will not indict the president. What can Mueller do if he finds evidence of criminality involving the president? He can and will (as authorized by Department of Justice regulations) file a report on his findings with the attorney general (or, since Attorney General Sessions is, in this case, recused, with the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein).

The Right would argue that per the Constitution Pence should be President. The Left on the other hand would argue that since Trump was not legitimately elected Pence does not have an actual claim to the office and would want a run off. In the end it would probably mean civil war.

Hmmmm? Seems like a very good guess to me. Trump continues to hide his financials, where’s the tax records?

Is that where the "left" conspiracy theories are ranging now?
I guess its possible. But its not collusion, nor is it obstruction.
