"The volitional form of a verb + が" means "(even) if". It's often used as ~うが、~まいが "(even) if doing or not", as in the following example 行こうが行くまいが "if you go or not". (This まい is for negative volitional/presumptive.)


[接助]《の4の用法から発達して中古末期に確立した》活用語の終止形(古語では連体形)に付く。
3 (推量の助動詞に付いて)それに拘束されない意を表す。「行こう―行くまい―、君の勝手だ」
が[格助接助終助]の意味 - 国語辞書 - goo辞書

あの女が違法なことをしようがどうしようが
(even) if she does illegal acts or anything

By the way, you will be pleased to know that I have finished the fourth HP book now! 1005 pages no less! I would like to thank you again for all the help you have patiently given me over this time.
