MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell says there is a source who told him that the Russian oligarchs were signing loans to President Trump from Deutsche Bank.
Attorneys for the German creditor said on Tuesday in federal appeals court that the bank had documents sought by Democratic-led committees that called on Deutsche Bank and Capital One for financial records related to Trump, his family and business , but declined to disclose whether they had Trump tax returns.
While the New York Times reports that Deutsche Bank, which has been doing business with Trump for two decades, has part of Trump's personal and corporate tax returns, said Don & # 39; Rachel Madd in the broadcast between their broadcasts Tuesday night that he could go a little farther
"This only source close to Deutsche Bank told me that the Trump loan papers ̵
e replied, "What? Really?"
"That would explain to me that every good word that Donald Trump has ever said about Russia and Vladimir Putin, if true, and I emphasize part of it" if true, " added Donle.
Later, Donnel said this source told him that Trump's tax returns reveal that "he pays little or no income tax for some years."
He added that his source said that Trump, a longtime real estate businessman, would not have been able to get his loans at Deutsche Bank without those accomplices he identified as "Russian billionaires close to Vladimir Putin."
"If true," said O-Donnel, "that would explain every kind word Donald Trump has ever said about Russia and Vladimir Putin. If true. If true, that would be an important factor in Vladimir Putin's publicly stated preference for Presidential candidate Donald Trump over Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "
