As the RussiaGate conspiracy theory continues to rattle around in the minds of the liberal left, a new angle has appeared from which the democrats are lobbing attacks at the President.
The American people have been inundated with insinuations about Donald Trump’s alleged connections to the Russian government, with some of the more outlandish theories even purporting that the President could be an “unwitting” participant in a Kremlin scheme to stealthily take over the United States.
In order to attempt to prove their extraordinary claims, democratic lawmakers are going to great lengths to trudge up any bit of information that will bolster their bizarre claims.
The latest bit of anti-Trump drivel comes to us from MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, who has claimed that Deutsche Bank’s loans to Mr. Trump were cosigned by Russian oligarchs close to Vladimir Putin. The President’s lawyers are responding to those claims with strong words today.

“This law firm is litigation counsel for President Donald J. Trump (‘Mr. Trump’) and The Trump Organization (‘Trump Org.’),” Charles Harder of Harder LLP law firm wrote to MSNBC executives, in a letter obtained by Breitbart News. “We write concerning the false and defamatory statements published by Lawrence O’Donnell and NBC Universal (‘NBCU’) (collectively, ‘you’ and ‘your’) about Mr. Trump and Trump Org. in an episode of the program, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, which was broadcasted on or about August 27, 2019 (the ‘Program’), and also published by Mr. O’Donnell and NBCU in a tweet posted on that same date (the ‘Tweet’). The Program and Tweet make the false and defamatory statements that ‘Russian oligarchs’ cosigned loans provided to Mr. Trump by Deutsche Bank, and described these ‘co-signers’ as ‘Russian billionaires close to Vladimir Putin.’”
Harder writes that the statements from O’Donnell and MSNBC are “false and defamatory.”
“These statements are false and defamatory, and extremely damaging,” the president’s lawyer wrote. “The only borrowers under these loans are Trump entities, and Mr. Trump is the only guarantor. Numerous documents for each of these loans are also recorded, publicly available and searchable online. Thus, actual malice can easily be proven based on your reckless disregard of the truth and unreasonable reliance on an alleged ‘source’ who you will not even identify in your story and likely is seeking to mislead you and the public for political reasons or other ulterior motives.”
As such, Harder wrote that Trump is demanding a retraction and apology from MSNBC and O’Donnell.
“Demand is hereby made that Mr. O’Donnell and NBCU immediately and prominently retract, correct and apologize for the aforementioned false and defamatory statements,” Harder’s letter continues.
President Trump has repeatedly denied any and all claims of Russian puppeteering – a nearly full time job on its own, given how frequently the desperate democrats have attempted to pin such wild claims on the Commander in Chief.
