I think you are thinking Mr Trump is a rational actor. He is a narcissist. It is about him first and foremost. The pieces are in place. He is waiting for confirmation of an AG. The plan is, and has been all along, for the dissolution of the SCO, when the investigation gets too close. (This assumes there are secrets he does not want publicized, whether they are personal or criminal.)
The backup plan for "others" has been the presidential pardon. He will use it loosely, freely, and often.
So his options are two, does he have enough money to keep him out of jail, after he become an ex, and does Russia have a nice palatial dacha waiting for him, regardless?
