    You have too much faith in "republican" lunacy, which is considerable but not absolute.

    If the investigation finds no cause for impeachment, his threat will be superfluous.

    They let a rapist reality TV show host who talked about how big his dick is during a debate become their nominee. Their lunacy is pretty close to absolute, but only because Trump's base is their base; without them they are nothing.

    And of course the threat would only be made after the report's conclusions are known and the decision has to be made whether it includes any impeachable offenses. Republicans' appreciation of this will not be value-neutral, it'll depend on what Trump does, and such a threat could be an effective way of making them not go the impeachment route, or at least dissuade enough of them so that it won't be able to succeed (either in the house or the senate).
    To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them.

    I see no indication that his competitors threw the game, but I'm possibly out of the loop..

    The GOP was the lunatic fringe before Trump and if he were to disappear, they would still be the lunatic fringe, albeit a massive fringe.
