Eric Trump vows lawsuit over Lawrence O'Donnell MSNBC report
Attorney Charles Harder, in a letter to NBC News executives posted online by the Daily Mail, called Mr. O’Donnell’s report demonstrably “false and defamatory” and demanded that Mr. O’Donnell and the network “immediately and prominently retract, correct and apologize for the aforementioned false and defamatory statements.”

At least one part of the Trump empire isn’t satisfied with Lawrence O’Donnell’s apology and walkback of an unverified piece of hearsay about purported ties between President Trump and the Kremlin.

Eric Trump, who is executive vice president of the Trump Organization, tweeted Wednesday evening that the company will take Mr. O’Donnell and MSNBC to court over the host saying on Tuesday night that Russian oligarchs tied to President Vladimir Putin had co-signed Mr. Trump’s loans with Deutsche Bank.

“This was a reckless attempt to slander our family and smear a great company. Apologies are not enough when the true intent was solely to damage and cause harm. As a company, we will be taking legal action. This unethical behavior has to stop,” he wrote, going on to tag Mr. O’Donnell and MSNBC.

Earlier Wednesday, Mr. O’Donnell had apologized for making the single-anonymous-source claim on the Rachel Maddow program, acknowledging “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.”
