If an attorney can get a large enough fee out of Trump, why would s/he care about being censured?

I suspect you're right that Trump won't go through with it - unfortunately.

This has no chance whatsoever.
When you run for President you're basically discarding the option of taking legal action against the media.
The courts are going to rule that a free press is in the national interest, be it on the left or right.

And that's why Trump only had a C&D letter sent instead of actually filing a lawsuit. He doesn't want to have his entire sexual abuse history opened up to discovery, especially when he's planning on launching a new television network. It'll not only pull him away from the work he's hoping to do, but the evidence uncovered will so badly damage his reputation that not even the most Breitbart-afflicted will think twice about tuning in.

Only in the minds of folks who cannot abide how the truth is biased against their personal preferences. You have made clear, though, that you have no intention of considering the matter on merits - you've made up your mind and perhaps recognize that considering the matter on the merits would simply cause to unravel the fiction you've crafted to rationalize what you support.

Further, a vast number of men are telling these women that obvious sexual assaults are merely "inappropriate touching".
Each time they here this story, many female voters will be sickened and forever associate Trump with every man and every man's actions which was inappropriately foisted upon her.
Trump brought this upon himself by bragging about being able to sexually assault women with impunity.
Trump brought this upon himself by accusing Bill Clinton of sexual assault.
Trump brought this upon himself by sexually assaulting other women.
Trump brought this upon himself by denying he sexually assaulted women.
Trump brought this upon himself by publicly attacking his accusers.
Trump brought this upon himself by attacking the newspaper.
And really Trump is in total control of this aspect of the campaign now. He could have made this all go away by standing up like an honorable man last Friday and say, "I'm sorry for the words, attitudes and actions I previously engaged in. I'm sorry for the demeaning manner by which I referred to and regarded many women. I recognize that such words, attitudes and actions are wrong, and having realized this over the last ten years, I am now pledged to working to further reduce the prevalence of sexism against women in our society, in these three ways..."

That's an apology. Note especially how there is nothing there about Bill Clinton or Hillary Clinton or really any attempt to deflect taking responsibility for his own words, attitudes and actions. The only attempt to parlay the statement into political fodder is a promise to work against sexism in specific ways - that would be recognized as an attempt to deflect some of the weight of the admission but if the three actions the mythical honorable Trump promised there were substantive that would capture the attention of the public, drowning out the fact that it is a bit of a distraction away from a pure apology.

Followed up on Sunday with a laser focus on the issues - the differences between his and Clinton's foreign and domestic policy perspectives - with clearly expressed and obeyed orders within the campaign to refrain from engaging in attacks against Bill Clinton or Hillary Clinton on the matter of sexual abuse, would have taken the whole matter of his own sexual corrupt off the table.

Every time Trump brings up sexual abuse, his own corruption will become the focus because his own corruption is that for which there is actual court-worthy evidence. His only path out of the condemnation being rightfully piled on top of him is to apologize truly and purely as I've suggested above, and his campaign refraining from bringing the matter of sexual abuse back up. If he cannot do that, then he doesn't have the discipline to be POTUS.

But we already know that he does not.

Apparently, Trump believes that the article is ruining his good name. That's going to be a difficult case to make.

Trump has a history of using the threat of legal action to get what he wants, something he likely learned from his mentor, Roy Cohn.

Be interesting to see if this tactic will work with the New York Times.

In an a related matter, Melania Trump has threatened to sue People magazine. Oddly enough, not about the allegations of assault by her husband, but because the reporter said they had a chance encounter on the street shortly after her Baron was born.

“At the time in question, Mrs. Trump would not have even recognized Ms. Stoynoff if they had encountered one another on the street,” according to her lawyer, Charles Harder.

Melania Trump threatens to sue People — but not over Donald sex assault claims | New York Post

Which is strange, given that Ms. Stoynoff had interviewed Mrs. Trump shortly before the baby was born for a People magazine article on the Trump's first anniversary. Ms. Stonoff wrote that they had chatted on other occasions as well.

So either Mrs. Trump has a very short memory, or ??

It won't.

That letter is obviously intended to provoke Trump.

It will not work. The two ladies made the allegations not the New York Times. The Times simply reported the allegations made by the women. Trump and sue the women involved but the has no case against the Times. He is bluffing.
