    He couldn't lose his seat without major corruption, no matter what Fox said.

    It was others in the caucus who were afraid that Conyers would be painted as, in effect, a national security risk for pursuing impeachment.  His fear was that they would then successfully prevail upon Pelosi to cut his legs out from under him on Judiciary.  For those people, Fox would only have to do what it has always done, but now with better ammunition.  I have no inside info, but I assume that that was the fear.
