This Andrew Miller situation is extremely significant. We've only just begun to scratch the surface.

Mueller is on the right track here.

Nov 8, 2016 was the culmination of a long journey for Trump & crew. 2010-2012 was a key time period on this track.
We keep going in circles, finding the same people popping up in shady places. Reunions are a key theme in Trumpland--but maybe no one ever leaves.

2010: NY Gubernatorial race

Roger Stone, Andrew Miller, Kristin Davis

nytimes.com/2010/08/12/nyr…
Divide & conquer: Roger Stone worked as Kristin Davis' campaign strategist, pro-bono (hmm) while Michael Caputo, Andrew Miller & Tony Fabrizio worked on the Paladino campaign.

You may recall Fabrizio was hired by Trump in May 2016.
NY gubernatorial election was held Tuesday, November 2 2010. Stone's efforts were not successful.

So the team moved on to their next project...

Feb 17, 2011 -- Formation of "Draft Trump 2012," a grass-roots org (grass roots my ass) was announced.

The group's goal was "...to convince Trump to declare his candidacy by the end of 2011."
Draft Trump 2012 was led by Nick McLaughlin, an Iraq war vet with no political experience. You can find his tweets still live under @DraftTrump2012
I have wondered if he is at all related to pollster John McLaughlin who worked for Trump campaign in 2016 (also founded Secure America Now) but I haven't found anything connecting them (besides Trump & co). cc @traciemac_Bmore 😉

This was the Draft Trump 2012 headquarters, uncovered by The Atlantic in April 2011.

3525 Fleet Lane, Saint Charles Mo 63301

At first I just assumed this was Nick McLaughlin's home.

theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
There's little info on purchase history of the home at 3525 Fleet Lane, the address listed for Trump 2012, but this is a NY registered corp at this address.

Registered January 3, 2011 by ANDREW MILLER.

Just 2 months after the NY gov election. So this was their next proj. Trump.
The phone # used on some Draft Trump 2012 press releases was the same # used by Kristin Davis' 2010 campaign for NY gov.

When Politico called the #, Andrew Miller answered.

The same Andrew Miller who worked for Paladino, Davis' 2010 opponent 🤔

politico.com/blogs/ben-smit…
Andrew Miller registered BL GLOBAL LLC in NY (w/Draft Trump 2012 Missouri address) on Jan 3rd, 2011.

Trump gave this interview to Forbes 2 days later.

forbes.com/sites/kerenbla…
But Draft Trump 2012 claimed it was "..neither funded by nor connected to Trump" & the media rarely questioned this claim.

nydailynews.com/news/national/…
Tony Fabrizio didn't officially join the 2012 "unofficial" movement, but he was around...

Fresh off the Paladino 2010 campaign where he worked with Andrew Miller & Michael Caputo.

He joined the Trump campaign officially in May 2016.

observer.com/2011/04/the-tr…
Trump 2012 in talks with Kellyanne Conway back in April 2011...

No stars aligned in 2016 -- there are no coincidences.

observer.com/2011/04/the-tr…
More Draft Trump 2012 personnel: Lynn Krogh. She worked pro bono.

Unpaid + Trump campaign = You are shady.

observer.com/2011/04/the-tr…
Krogh held the same role on the Paladino campaign in 2010. Hope she got paid that time lol.

Draft 2012 was a Stone Production TM w/Andrew Miller answering the phones yet again.

politico.com/blogs/ben-smit…
Roger Stone had a lot to say to Politico in Feb 2011 about a Trump presidential run.

They described him as "a longtime advisor"

And Trump was quick to react.

politico.com/story/2011/02/…
Because Trump answered the same day that Politico piece went up. He distanced himself from Stone immediately.

politico.com/story/2011/02/…
As @JamesFourM notes, this is their game.

When it comes to Roger Stone & Donald Trump..

It's not about who you know, it's about who you pretend to not know.

Stone waxed on about "..a social media-heavy campaign." What foresight.

politico.com/story/2011/02/…
Stone is cunning but he can't help himself. He lives for ratfucking.

Sam Nunberg's loose lips though.

2014 Buzzfeed piece he arranged; described Nunberg as:

"..a young conservative activist turned operative who now works as Trump’s political right hand."

Same piece says Nunberg works for Stone & Trump is client...

buzzfeed.com/mckaycoppins/3…
I'm not sure when Nunberg became "Trump's political right hand," but Nunberg & Stone joined forces well before 2014.

dailycaller.com/2012/11/30/msn…
Almost forgot -- Sam Nunberg got Trump right hand status in 2011.

He was working with Roger Stone at the time.

washingtonpost.com/politics/the-b…
Nunberg helped Trump write his speech for CPAC in 2011.

CPAC was held on Feb 10th that year.

1 week before Draft Trump 2012 announced
2 weeks before Trump denies Stone is an advisor

But Nunberg.

forward.com/fast-forward/3…
Before working for Stone (& Trump, simultaneously), Nunberg worked for ACLJ, founded by Trump's now lawyer Jay Sekulow. Sekulow hired him.

Lots of reunions. Neverending loop.
April 30, 2011: WH Correspondents Dinner.

In 2016, Roger Stone claimed this was what inspired Trump to run for President. An empty, false claim from the guy who had been building Trump's campaign for months before that event.

adweek.com/tvnewser/did-w…
May 2011: Trump bows out (for now).

I thought the WH Correspondents Dinner got him fired up?!?!

Trump can't help but double-down. It's his nature. Why back down?

Because Stone had a plan. Long game.

theguardian.com/world/2011/may…
Late 2011: Romney & other GOP presidential hopefuls visit Trump to get his endorsement. Seriously WTF. Why was this even a thing?

buzzfeednews.com/article/mckayc…
GOP 2012 candidates were shamelessly sucking up to Trump as the race went on without his bid.

Meanwhile, Roger Stone & Andrew Miller went to work for Libertarian Gary Johnson.

From the looks of it, Gary Johnson was another Roger Stone signature spoiler candidate (tm) & Andrew Miller took his usual spot riding sidecar.

nytimes.com/2012/10/15/us/…
I don't know exactly what they were up to, but at least one Stone pal wasn't having it...
Credico storyline coming full circle. He's been along for this whole ride--going back to at least the Kristin Davis days. And Davis testified before grand jury today.

Something tells me Randy Credico has A LOT to say about Roger Stone and Andrew Miller.

I hope he'll be as colorful as he was in 2012.
Hold up.

Need another look at this rant. Credico, Stone, Miller & Davis. The gang's all here!

Another reunion....this one brought by SC Robert Mueller. Too late for that distancing routine.
