"No chance this is a DJT led conspiracy. He isn't detail oriented, organized or big picture enough to pull off any time of conspiracy," said Cuban in a series of tweets on Saturday.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban unloaded his theory on the Trump-Russia controversy in a tweetstorm on Saturday. The Shark Tank host commented on Trump's speculated Russian ties which have been the subject of several investigations, saying that although Trump welcomed Russia's business, they were purely for making money and he "had no clue" that overseas connections were pulling off a conspiracy during the presidential elections.

Cuban, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump and even considered a political run himself, said that Trump's business deals with Russians were for financial reasons because they "have made him a lot of money buying condos and investing in his bldgs and hosting his beauty pageant." When it comes to Trump's business deals and even his hiring of Paul Manafort as top adviser (who has now resigned after facing heavy scrutiny for accepting millions in cash from Ukraine as a political consultant), Cuban added that Trump saw opportunity for more Russian business and "had no idea those connections were possibly being influenced by Russia."

He added that Trump does not have the strategy himself to pull off a conspiracy. "No chance this is a DJT led conspiracy," Cuban tweeted. "He isn't detail oriented, organized or big picture enough to pull off any time of conspiracy."

Cuban said that he believes Trump's campaign "took direction from people he trusted and he followed those directions" and included Bannon as a "next level" hire. 

"I think Putin recognized trumps greed and took advantage by back channeling coordinated misinformation in an attempt to influence voters," Cuban tweeted. "Trump had no idea this was happening. He was doing what he was told to do. Stick to the script and read what was written for him."
