Trump announced this early not to avoid indictments, he announced early to fund his lifestyle [View all]

I've seen a lot of pundits speculate that the reason Trump announced this early is to stave off indictments. That won't work, of course, but I think the real reason he declared so early is so he can tap into that sweet, bottomless well of campaign cash to fund his lifestyle.

As a candidate, he has more freedom to spend contributions with some clever (illegal) accounting. With his company's exposure to civil lawsuits, he's probably going to need it. It's really the best thing for him right now, financially.
