So where is Mueller now?
MUELLER’S FINGERPRINTS ON CONGRESS.
Trump’s Republican allies in Congress know that the only way they can get rid of Mueller is to invent phony scandals about him that would result in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller in the first place, to resign or to give Trump a reason to fire Rosenstein. A clear example of this point was Congress’s attack against the investigator Mueller removed from his team who had sent disparaging text messages about Trump. Rosenstein responded by essentially throwing the agents involved to the Congressional wolves. He just turned over all the evidence involved, and allowed Trump’s Congressional wolves to publicly destroy their reputations, thus preventing Congress or Trump from trying to publicly move to fire Rosenstein and Mueller. This allowed Mueller to publicly demonstrate to the American people and more importantly to the media, that he will do whatever it takes to make sure that his investigation continues. This allowed Rosenstein to publicly demonstrate to the American people that he stands strongly behind Mueller, even at the risk of getting fired, because Mueller is doing the right thing for the country. This clearly sets up the public discourse that if Congress or Trump fires Rosenstein or if the media continues to call for such a firing all hell will break loose in the country.
MUELLER’S FINGERPRINTS ON PENCE.

With each passing day, Mike Pence seems more convinced he’s about to inherit the presidency. But Mueller has no intentions of letting Pence off the hook for his role in the scandal and it’s cover-up. Mueller’s plea deal with Flynn has given Mueller an air tight paper trail back a Pence and his criminal indictment for covering up the fact that Flynn was on the take from foreign governments. Mueller has subsequently turn over this evidence to Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to demand Pence to appear before the Senate to provide additional details about this incident and to allow him to once again to clearly and publicly deny his complicity. Mueller is then expected to interview Pence after his Senate testimony is entered into the public record. This testify publicly, followed by filing of an indictment, is the approach Mueller is expected to take in bringing down all of his high profile informants against Trump. Mueller is expecting to either take Pence down, or force Pence to cut a plea deal which would lead to his resignation and cooperation against Donald Trump.
MUELLER’S FINGERPRINTS ON RYAN.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is suspiciously floating the idea that he is considering retiring at the end of his current term, or resigning before his term is up. This comes at a time when the Republican Party is reeling from one chaotic distraction after another as Donald Trump implodes. It’s long been speculated that Ryan was caught up in the Trump-Russia scandal right from the beginning. Could this resignation announcement be Ryan’s first step in his exit strategy to either run for the hills or to run to a Mueller plea deal? It’s a well known fact that when Congressman Kevin McCarthy was caught on tape confirming Putin was paying off Trump that Ryan covered this up because he knew Trump and Russia were illegally rigging the election. Mueller has already investigated Ryan to determine just what he knew and when he knew it and has determined Ryan’s at least guilty of misprision of a felony, or perhaps something more serious like conspiracy against the United States. This cut and run or cop a plea deal approach represents how Mueller has handled all of his previous informants.
MUELLER’S FINGERPRINTS ON THE NEXT PRESIDENT.

Almost daily Trump and Pence are looking guiltier in the Russia scandal with each new Mueller plea deal cut. The odds of them both being ousted continue to rise exponentially with each passing day. Recently, Paul Ryan, next in line for the presidency, indicated he is considering quitting Congress, he too realizing that because of his own problems with Mueller’s investigation he is unlikely to inherit the presidency. All of this can be expected to muddy the waters of the country’s presidential line of succession in appointing the next president. From a presidential line of succession point of view it is probable that Congress will oust Trump or Pence first, depending on who becomes the most untenable, and then force the other to appoint a new VP who would be mutually acceptable to both parties.
This was what Congress did with Richard Nixon’s VP Spiro Agnew when Agnew was forced out of office and Congress expected Nixon would also be forced out of office shortly thereafter. Congress confirmed Gerald Ford as the new VP, despite the fact that Ford was not even in the presidential line of succession. Congress then went on to force Nixon out of office. Leaving our current line of succession question being – What new VP candidate would be mutually acceptable to both parties?
