We Have Donald Trump's Tax Returns MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Says
White House releases 2005 Trump tax info ahead of TV report

29 March, 2017

When you hype something like MSNBC and Rachel Maddow did saying, "I have Trump's tax returns", you damn sure better have the whole thing, not two pages. She was also wearing some new sneakers.

With huge numbers of viewers tuned in because of her earlier tweet that she had obtained President Donald Trump's tax returns, she talked. and talked. and talked.

The fact that the material was leaked - and the Trump administration contended that it was illegal for Maddow to publicize it - is as important as what it revealed, Maddow said.

Maddow made it seem like she had all the answers right there on her desk, just waiting to drop this bombshell.

Instead, the return is important because it is simply "the first piece in the jigsaw", she explained. The sender is not known but Johnston points out at the possibility of Trump.

And after all that, in the end, we didn't learn anything we didn't already know. "And I want to know why the president won't release more of them". Did Maddow have Donald Trump's tax returns or just one of the Trumps' tax returns? Johnston then speculated on the show that the documents could have been mailed from Trump, a known leaker of information, or his associates since they appeared to paint the president in a favorable light.

Johnston gave a few more details during an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America, including that there was no return address on the envelope.

The White House said Tuesday that President Donald Trump made more than $150 million in income in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes that year. Dictionary.com said its top request for word definition was for "transom", after Johnston described how he received the documents "over the transom", meaning that they arrived unrequested and in this case, in the old-fashioned US mail - the second time Trump tax returns have come to a reporter that way in recent months. He said NBC News was part of the "deep state" looking to undermine Trump's presidency. She had uncovered Trump's tax returns. Sources of income could show ties to Russia, China or foreign banks. We got Russian oligarchs, Cypriot banks, the firing of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and much more. If only because of his lies on the subject, I am still very firmly convinced that something very damaging is lying hidden in Trump's tax returns. "Because, otherwise, we're gonna continue to worry that that might secretly be what's driving him as long as he doesn't show us what every other president has shown us". There were a lot of people on the left who said that they felt Trump wasn't really making any money at all and that he was one big phony. If it happened once, it's likely to happen again, she said.

The Republican real estate magnate has refused to release his full tax returns since he began his quest for the presidency, shattering decades of American tradition. The crew even produced alternate shows in case the documents proved to be false.

Johnston responded on Twitter, pointing out that the White House had confirmed the return's validity.
