Posted on 08/30/2019 5:28:03 AM PDT by mplc51
MSNBC host Lawrence ODonnell tried to weasel his way out of reporting fake news about President Trump colluding with Russian oligarchs, by apologizing on air Thursday night. However, Eric Trump says its too late, and warned ODonnell that he will face legal action over the slur.
ODonnell essentially did the bare minimum in an effort to avoid legal consequences, saying I should not have said it on-air or posted it on Twitter. I was wrong to do so.
Last night on this show, I discussed information that wasnt ready for reporting. I repeated statements a single source told me about the presidents finances and loan documents with Deutsche Bank saying if trueas I discussed the information was simply not good enough, he said.

The question is will NBC keep him on while his lawyers deal with his being sued for slander? Big, if true is the kind of thing one posts on an anonymous Mongolian Basketweaving forum.
Wake me when the suit is filed.
It was your typical non-apology apology, essentially saying “I apologize, but what I said is probably true.”
The media needs to be crushed. Let’s start here.
O’Donnell said in his apology only that the information wasn’t “ready to report”, but qualified that by saying he didn’t know if it was inaccurate. I think that’s what kept him on the hot seat. He knows it’s inaccurate, but wanted to leave the viewers with the impression that it might not be. He needed to say it wasn’t true, and that might have let him off the hook.
Good for President Trump.... he’ll win this one.
The other word the press hides under to spread fake news is allegedly.
Allegedly, [insert slander here].
I would imagine there is a long list of video clips of O’Donnell spewing venom about Trump. Sure would like to see that clip when O’Donnell tries to claim an absence of malice.
Every time the media whores say “if true ...” it should trigger a lawsuit.
Sources close to.... That one is my favorite. What the hell does that mean, walking by on the sidewalk?
No escape for MSNBC & Larry the Douche. That was a non-apology apology.
Just your typical BS. But they are going to be smacked around and hit with big legal fees and milked to death trying to fight an inevitable loss.
It’s already over as soon as this gets filed.
I’m glad to hear this, and I hope it’s true and that we see follow through before long. But I don’t get why Eric Trump announced it. Why does O’Donnell need a heads up? I don’t doubt for a single second that the Trumps know these protocols better than I do, but I do wish it had come as a surprise to O’Donnell. It would’ve been satisfying to have left Larry thinking that he had swept it all away with his non-apology to only then be caught completely off-guard with the notification of having been sued. I wonder why the Trumps didn’t go that route.
i hope POTUS spends a few bucks and brings “Lawrence” low - well, lower than he has brought himself (which is pretty darned low already). take. him. down.
The problems is that accusers have always had way more protections that the accused.
All you have to do is look at the egregious example of the Covington HS kids. Even wapo won the first round. Look at Kavanagh.
I think we need some legal reform to strengthen the rights of the wrongly accused. Otherwise, the accusers will keep doing it; this will carry over to “ red flag” accusations as well.
Measure for measure. He should compensate the President and his family for the slanders that he perpetrated on the Trumps.
Sort of like the “I’m sorry.....I got caught” apology.
Its clear the only reason he gave that non apology was because the lawyers at NBC made him. So he already knew exactly how exposed he was.
If Trump files a law suit, then you have discovery, which means that the Deutsch Bank would fork over everything they have on Trump. This might include tax returns, loan apps etc.
Trump (young Trump) better be careful here.
I believe President Trump has mentioned a desire to re-work the slander and libel laws. People in the media who tell lies should not be untouchable.
