President Donald Trump, who may have to resign because of allegations of sexual abuse against him, has been warned by a group of 22 former federal prosecutors not to fire special investigator Robert Mueller. The President was emphatically told that "grave consequences" will ensue if he removes Mueller from his position.

The warnings were made in the midst of an obvious adversarial relationship between Trump and Mueller that has been perpetually brewing for the last few weeks. As poor relations between the two headstrong political figures have escalated by exponential proportions, so have rumors about what is to happen next.

And most observers, including those on MSNBC and C-SPAN, have agreed that a Trump firing of Mueller is likely, if not imminent.

Implications of a Mueller firing

The possible implications of a Trump firing of Mueller are compelling at the very least. For one thing, the President could be perceived of having something to hide and attempting to cover it up. Secondly, other observers could perceive Trump as protecting many subordinates in his administration, including his son Donald Trump, Jr. and son-in-law Jared Kushner. Still others may deduce that Trump is being manipulated and controlled by Russian leader Vladimir Putin who wants evidence of his having interfered with the American election process to remain secret at all costs.

No matter what different observers believe the reasons are that Trump possibly would fire Mueller, the firing would reverberate across the spectrum of American voters, politicians, and political observers. At the very least, Trump would face a bumpy road in the 2018 midterm elections and could face a Democratic House and possibly even a Democratic Senate in January 2019.

At the very most, Trump could face the likelihood of impeachment by a Democratic House of Representatives, a trial before the Senate which also might be Democratic, and a conviction of collusion with foreign entities.

If this scenario were to unfold, the President would face the prospect of having to resign to avoid being impeached and removed from office.

Trump, much like President Richard Nixon when he resigned, would have to depend on the good graces of his former Vice-President for a full pardon. It is unknown if Vice-President Mike Pence would pardon Trump as did Gerald Ford when he pardoned Nixon after he resigned.

Prosecutors send a strong letter

In strongly stated terms, twenty-two former prosecutors from 18 states, plus Puerto Rico, sent a letter directly to Trump. In that letter, the high-profile prosecutors stated that Mueller "must be permitted to continue the difficult job with which he has been charged," according to The Huffington Post on Friday. The letter also warned of "severe repercussions" that would ensue in response to such a firing.

Rumors that Mueller had attained evidence "illegally" were proven to be false. Consequently, there appears to be no rationale for a Mueller firing, according to most observers.

Nikki Haley weighs in

Meanwhile, the American Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, stated earlier this week that she feels that the women who are alleging that Trump sexually assaulted them should be heard. Haley stated that such women should not be ignored and that they have a right to make their allegations. It is unknown if a Special Counsel will be appointed to look into those allegations as well. It appears that the investigations into all of these allegations are far from over. It is unlikely that the political horizon will be clear for Trump and his administration by the time of the 2018 midterm elections. In the meantime, it appears that Mueller has all of his ducks in a row.
