I think the expectation is that, unless this truly was an emergency that required immediate and unforeseen action, planning would have been done in advance for the possible outcomes.
That wouldn't be making it a foregone conclusion, as Jimmy said. There should have been plans for how to communicate an involuntary dismissal, how to communicate a resignation, and how to go forward and put it behind them if the removal vote failed. Even if this was an emergency, there's now been plenty of time to urgently handle the communication and do something besides stonewalling. We don't, as of now, even have an expected time frame for a detailed answer.
