WH Releases Tax Info Before Maddow’s Show; Then Blasts Host For Possible Illegal Act

The White House released an official statement slamming MSNBC and Rachel Maddow with the words “you know you’re desperate for ratings.”

Rachel Maddow decided she was going to announce information dealing with President Trump’s tax returns from 2005 on her Tuesday night show. The White House pre-empted her by announcing to the world

This just shows how desperate Democrats want that power back. Americans finally had seen and are still seeing the corruption, greed, and how anti-middle American Dems are. Regardless most of us see that some are still brainwashed slugs and want free stuff without working. Smh. Enough is enough snowflakes.

It shall be unlawful for any person to whom any return or return information (as defined in section 6103(b)) is disclosed in a manner unauthorized by this title thereafter willfully to print or publish in any manner not provided by law any such return or return information. Any violation of this paragraph shall be a felony punishable by a fine in any amount not exceeding $5,000, or imprisonment of not more than 5 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution.

When anyone can obtain another person’s tax records without consent is a dangerous road, and to be able to do that to the PRESIDENT of the United States is beyond a dangerous path!

In another major leak for the White House, MSNBC on Tuesday night released a portion of President Trump’s 2005 tax documents – drawing a stern rebuke from the administration.

Host Rachel Maddow said the two-page summary of Trump’s federal return for that year was first obtained to journalist David Cay Johnston, who gave MSNBC a first look at the documents.

It is unclear who leaked them. Johnston, with the website DCReport.org, said only that he found the documents “in the mail.”

Citing the files, they said Trump made over $150 million that year and paid over $36 million in taxes, which Johnston suggested was relatively low and the result of a benefit.

The White House, while roughly confirming those numbers, pre-emptively pushed back minutes before the on-air report, saying that publishing the returns would be illegal.

“You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago,” a senior administration official said in a statement.

The official added it is “totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns.”

MSNBC and Maddow are really not playing with a full deck. And people wonder what’s wrong with the media we have the past administration to thank for that one. Along with so many other things. The problem is they’ve destroyed a generation of our youth. They will forever be known as the snowflake generation.

Nobody cares. They’re his business. I’m sure if they were public, there would be all kinds of misinterpretation of them anyway.

Just someone having their 15 seconds…
