Could it be that Trump knew that he was going to run for POTUS in 2014?

In connection with what is coming out today about the Russian boys? Maybe Mueller has many avenues to go down? I hope so?

1. He has been considering it since 1988 and actually did try in 2000,

under the aegis of the Reform Party.

5. Well, that remains to be seen.

Michael Wolfe's book says Trump never intended or expected to win. The Russians' intent might have been to weaken Clinton, whom everyone expected to win, not for Trump to actually win. According to Wolfe, his campaign was intended as publicity for a new TV venture. I think once Trump was elected, Putin put on the pressure.

3. Then did he make the deal for the old post office building in DC?

That was always suspicious to me.

4. He ran in 2012. Certainly by 2014 he knew if he would do it again.

8. I think it was somewhere

round that time when he started saying that some people are saying I should run. I think some people = Putin.
