4. My guess is that once the tax bill is passed that he will be disowned

And will be impeached. He will claim dementia and be forgiven and everyone (almost everyone) will suffer.

6. Hasn't this been discussed about seven million times here?

And every time the answer is: TRUMP CANNOT FIRE MUELLER.

9. Directly no- can't argue with you there

As for this being discussed seven million times - I counted 6.5 million but you were close.

I think this thread is relevant and important due to the new developments.

17. My fear is that nothing would happen

And yes this topic gets a bunch of discussion around here. Some are convinced Trump can not fire Mueller, others are convinced Trump can fire Mueller. The truth IS THAT NOBODY KNOWS WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF HE TRIES IT.

The reason why nobody is quite sure either way is because currently there is no legal framework for 'Special Prosecutors'. The framework laws that outlined do's and dont's for Special Prosecutors expired in 1998. And Congress has not drafted nor passed the legislation needed.

So it's not just my opinion that nobody really knows what would happen, Constitutional lawyers (those in the know-not just political hacks) don't know what would happen.

At the end of the day if Trump does fire Mueller, or attempts to fire Mueller, IT WILL ULTIMATELY COME DOWN TO CONGRESS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Yes Congress. Which currently has REPUBLICAN MAJORITIES IN BOTH HOUSES.

In often gets mentioned that Sen. Blumenthal has drafted legislation to protect Mueller, BUT THAT DON'T MEAN JACK SQUAT BECAUSE IT HASN'T BEEN DEBATED NOR VOTED ON YET. IT ISN'T LAW, IT ISN'T EVEN CLOSE TO BECOMING LAW.

You may feel different, but I have no faith in Republican Congress people to stop Trump from firing Mueller. None. Nada. Ain't going to happen.

So, as I said, I fear nothing will happen if Donald Trump fires Mueller. Because it would take Republicans to do something about it. And they are detestable Shitheads who have their heads up their asses.

I am shocked he hasn't tried it already.
