The New York Times decided to investigate the allegation that Trump owes money to Russia and/or Russian.
They were forced to conclude it is just another hoax.
According to The Daily Wire:
Following The New York Times’ attempts to prove President Donald Trump paid little to no taxes, the paper had to admit that the president doesn’t owe money to Russia.
The outlet reported Tuesday that it looked into who Trump owed money to and found no evidence that Russia was on the list. The Times apparently looked into who Trump owes after Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said during last week’s vice-presidential debate: “It’d be really good to know who the president of the United States, the commander-in-chief, owes money to, because the American people have a right to know what is influencing the president’s decisions.”
The Times reported: “According to Mr. Trump’s latest financial disclosure report, filed with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, he owes at least $135 million to a smattering of small financial institutions such as Ladder Capital. His biggest creditor — to whom Mr. Trump owes well over $300 million — is Deutsche Bank. From 2012 through 2015, the scandal-plagued German bank lent Mr. Trump money for his Doral golf resort in Florida ($125 million), his hotel in Washington ($170 million) and his skyscraper in Chicago (at least $45 million).”
The Times then rattled off several conspiracy theories about how Trump owing Deutsche Bank really meant he owed the Russians before debunking the claims…
Democrats have been trying unsuccessfully to obtain President Trump’s Deutsche Bank record in hope of finding a smoking gun for years. It likely isn’t there, as most of their other conspiracy theories.
