He, himself, is ALL he can see; that's it. Since he, personally, didn't collude then, OF COURSE, his campaign didn't. I do think he believes that because his ego simply won't let him entertain any other scenario.

That said, I do agree that his past dealings with the Russian oligarchs probably includes a lot of illegal actions. In fact, I suspect that many of them [the Russians]are hoping nothing comes of the Mueller investigation because if they are charged/indicted, they face the possibility of having their assets in the USA (and elsewhere?) seized and maybe even the possibility of not getting any repayments from Dump as HIS assets are frozen. They may be sweating Mueller as much as Dump himself.
If that's the case, he's dumber than I thought. The best way forward politically would be for Trump to treat Putin harshly. Aim his attacks on Russia. Instead, his actions makes it look like ther is something there.

Why I believe it's more than ego over the election is Trump was being Russia's buddy long before the election He was toeing the Kremlin line almost from the day he came down that stupid escalator.

I really don't think so. It can all be explained by Trump being unable to understand that he can do anything wrong and the fact Putin doesn't say nasty things about Trump (that Trump gets to hear) .
