MSNBC Moderator Lawrence O & # 39; Donnell claims that one source has told him that Russian oligarchs have signed loans to President Trump of Deutsche Bank.
German lenders' lawyers told a federal appeals court on Tuesday that the bank had sought documents from Democrat-led House committees that had summoned Deutsche Bank and Capital One for financial records regarding Trump, his family, and businesses refused to reveal if they have Trump's tax returns.

If that is true, this would be a key factor in Vladimir Putin's publicly declared preference for presidential candidate Donald Trump over presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "
