CNN: Mueller Investigating Trump’s Russian Business Dealings Prior to 2016 Campaign

‘It raises the question whether Russia was exerting any influence in that decision’

RUSH EXCERPT:
SCIUTTO: "We were told by a number of sources close to it that he is asking about business activities in 2013 -- 2014 before he formally announced for president. And they are asking about 2013. The pageant as well as banning, Moscow extending lines of inquiry to prior to the campaign actually started. Keep in mind the special counsel’s, but ties between Trump associates and Russians. Anything that may come up during course of the investigation and that’s where he’s going now. One of key questions is, due to these business dealings, do the fact that it was the same time when the president was deciding to run as president — it raises the question whether Russia was exerting any influence in that decision."
