Even if he did bring her down before the Empress and her family were killed there is no guarantee that he would be raised to replace her.

Galgan and Suroth seem to be operating as "super high lord/lady" given command over others but that authority still came from the Empress and they are not members of the imperial family.

Pre the Seanchan collapse if Tuon was gone another daughter/son would be made heir apparent. The only way Galgan could hope for that sort of promotion would be to show that Tuon was planning to over throw the Empress and extorting money from merchangs is nowhere is the same league of offence.
