Republican Excuses If Trump Loans Were Co-Signed By Russian Oligarchs


On Tuesday, August 28th, Lawrence O’Donnell opened his show during the handoff from Rachel Maddow by saying a single source had claimed Donald Trump had gotten loans from Deutsche Bank; cosigned by Russian oligarchs. O’ Donnell later admitted he erred by discussing a thinly sourced story which did not meet “the rigorous vetting standards” of MSNBC and NBC News. Typically, a news organization would require at least two sources before going public and Lawrence O’Donnell stated several times he only had one.


“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.”

The thought of Russians actually co-signing Trump’s loans had never been discussed publicly although many have questioned why Deutsche Bank would lend hundreds of millions of dollars to Trump when literally no-one else in the world would? Reporters worldwide are now on the scent and Trump loan documents are already under subpoena. We will likely find out the truth fairly soon. My question is, how will Republican supporters respond if this turns out to be true? Let’s imagine?

Mitch McConnell

“These loans were taken out long before Mr. Trump ran for President. I myself have gifts of tens of millions from my Chinese father-in-law. Co-signing a loan is a normal business arrangement and I see nothing wrong with it. As an aside, my name is not Moscow Mitch.”

Lindsay Graham

“I think any honest business relationship the President had with close friends of Vladimir Putin can only help bring our two countries closer together. The President kept quiet about it because the fake news media would only twist it and try to make it out to be something other than a standard business deal with a dictator.”

Sean Hannity

“This is just like when people tried to make something out of Michael Cohen secretly representing me while I had him on my show several times. Nothing to see here.”

Mike Pence

“I can assure you this never happened. You have my word!”

David Duke

“We stand with the President. No matter what they say about him, he’s our guy.”

Vladimir Putin

“Nyet! Fake news!”

Ann Coulter

“I don’t care what he does as long as he builds that wall.”

Michael Cohen

“I have nothing to say. I don’t want to end up like Jeffrey Epstein.”
