Trump leaked his tax forms himself

The white house released details of his 2005 tax returns BEFORE MSNBC ran the story.  They were so ready to hit the ground running that they hit it before Maddow did.

The second page is clearly stamped "Client Copy", which would be the one his accountants gave him (and him alone).

Finally, there is nothing surprising or embarrassing about this 2-page form.  If someone who had access to Trump's tax records wanted to leak them maliciously, they would have released his full schedules.  The one person who had access to all the forms, and who had a vested interest in showing off his tax profile in the best possible light, is Trump himself.

Mission accomplished.  And you all who are hooting about Maddow being played -- have yourselves been played.

The only ones that got played were Maddow and everyone who thought she finally had the goods on Trump.

“I have no idea where they got it but it’s illegal and they’re not supposed to have it and it’s not supposed to be leaked.” “It’s certainly not an embarrassing tax return at all but it’s an illegal thing they’ve been doing it, they’ve done it before and I think it’s a disgrace.”

Yet MSNBC made it appear as though they had some bombshell
scoop. If the white house already beat MSNBC to the punch
with this, that makes their hype leading up to the program even more misleading.

Claiming that Trump actually sent this is speculation.
From your article...
Quote:
"By the way, let me point out that it's entirely possible that Donald Trump sent this to me. Donald Trump has, over the years, leaked all sorts of things," said Johnston, founder of DCReport.org. Johnston won his Pulitzer in 2001 for his stories on the inequality of the tax code while he was with The New York Times.


So even the person who actually received them is not sure.
He only said it was a possibility.

That's why MSNBC's hype leading up to this was misleading.
They made it look as though there was some big bombshell here, there wasn't.

No George, no one here was responsible for how the network handled this. MSNBC hyped this as though they discovered gold, but instead presented a spray painted rock.

Maddow said in her show that MSNBC sent the document they had to the White House for a response.  So that kind of puts a damper on the "he had it read and actually published it before she did" narrative.

So it could be explained like this: she sent it to him.  He sent back a statement regarding the document she sent him.  And then he decided to jump out ahead of her and publicly state the details and accuracy.

Maddow's disclaimer about not publishing the material and going over it in detail falls kind of flat! This in a major felony punishable by 1 to 5 years in prison! Will the DOJ be paying her a visit? Trump may have poisoned that well by his early release of the info but there may be a case against her and the reporter she had on! Huh
