MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell added to the swirl of rumor that surrounds President Donald Trump’s relationship with Deutsche Bank, suggesting that his loans with the lender were underwritten by Russian billionaires.

O’Donnell, appearing on the network Tuesday night with host Rachel Maddow, said that “this single source close to Deutsche Bank has told me that the Trump — Donald Trump’s loan documents there show that he has co-signers. That’s how he was able to obtain those loans. And that the co-signers are Russian oligarchs.”

“If true, that would explain every kind word Donald Trump has ever said about Russia and Vladimir Putin,” he said.

“If true, that would be a significant factor in Vladimir Putin’s publicly stated preference for presidential candidate Donald Trump over presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”

Lawrence O’Donnell is a fairly measured and reasonable cable news pundit. 

For him to just make a declaration like this without a fair amount of certainty would be uncharacteristic of him.

Especially since Deutsche Bank just revealed that they do indeed have Trump’s tax returns. 

And let’s face it this would explain a whole hell of a lot about Trump’s actions while in office, and his adamant refusal to release his tax returns. 

I am going to officially adopt a wait and see attitude, but I have to say that this sounds legitimate to me.

    “Looking at all of the matchups, President Trump is stuck between 38 and 40 percent of the vote. These low numbers may partly be explained by a lack of support among white women, a key voting bloc that voted for Trump in the 2016 election. Today, white women go for the Democratic candidate by double digits in every scenario.”

      The DNC has created a War Room, a joint effort with communications, research, and digital departments, who drive rapid response against Trump with daily email blasts, among other initiatives. They’ve also built “the world’s most comprehensive research file on Donald Trump,” an official noted. The official pointed to a news story outlining the communications infrastructure they are building in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Florida, and Ohio.

      “At the DNC we take nothing for granted: we’re making historic early investments, working every day to hold Trump accountable for his broken promises and laying the infrastructure now to ensure our eventual nominee defeats Trump in 2020,” David Bergstein

    ….are all in for the Open Border Socialists (or beyond). Fox hires “give Hillary the questions” @donnabrazile, Juan Williams and low ratings Shep Smith. HOPELESS & CLUELESS! They should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to Win – That’s what I do, Win. Too Bad!….

    ….I don’t want to Win for myself, I only want to Win for the people. The New @FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!

    “it is clear that the president wants any voices who are critical of him off of his favorite TV channel immediately.

    If Fox News doesn’t comply, their number one viewer is trying to get his Twitter followers to boycott Fox.”

    “You can not. CAN NOT write this type of scene involving #Trump. Hollywood would kick it back and say: “That would NEVER happen.” And yet.. It did! At the #G7Summit no less. 😳😱😂🤣😂

    He is already backing off the story, darn, however I still think there is something to the story.

    Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process. I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air. I will address the issue on my show tonight. Lawrence O’Donnell

    John Dean: MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell says he was “wrong” to report the thinly sourced Trump finances story BUT IS HE RETRACTING THE STORY? Or is it stay tuned?

    “O’Donnell, appearing on the network Tuesday night with host Rachel Maddow…..”

    Oh god, the liberal brain trust lol?

    You going to correct this at any point, seeing as O’Donnell had to publicly retract this?

    Would certainly explain why Trump is trying so hard to keep those bank records sealed and away from the Democrats.
