Let's hope so.

But color me pessimistic.

The alt-right blogosphere is now buzzing with the meme that it would be inappropriate for Mueller's probe to investigate the president's financial dealings from 5 or 10 years ago.  Obviously there is great fear that Mueller will find money laundering and Foreign Practices Act violations and indications that Donald's "multi-billion dollar empire" is actually a couple hundred mil leveraged to the hilt.

Illegal behavior is prosecutable regardless of the station of the subject, and the president's pardon power is limited when it comes to family and associates.  If not by statute, then by Congress.  

Fox is reporting that Democrats are behind the probe, and the whole thing is a thinly-disguised effort to overthrow the election they lost.  We'll see if that spin gets any traction outside the Fox echo chamber.

Regardless, I fail to see an outcome that places Hillary in the Oval Office.

Is there any provision in the US for a special (off-date) election, or are you stuck working your way down the "line of succession" until you find someone who isn't being prosecuted?

The latter.

Unless somebody can prove that the vote count was tampered with.  

Which isn't even being alleged.  Votes may have been (probably WERE)  suppressed, but no evidence has emerged that any votes were changed.  Although it's not beyond the realm of possibility.

If actions reveal where Mueller's secret probe is headed, today's report of a pre-dawn raid on Paul Manafort's home last month indicates some serious federal charges are coming.
