Well, if Trump did this it was brilliant. If this was an attempt to hurt Trump whoever cooked it up did not think it through. This was a disaster for Maddow.


Wasn't so great for MSNBC, either.   Grin

Good for him, if that's what happened.  Also, good for him if it didn't happen that way.  Either way, President Trump wins.  hil's said that it wouldn't surprise her if he didn't pay his taxes.  Has she issued a statement yet regarding the tax percentage that he pays?  It's a higher percentage than obummer pays.  Will we ever hear her eating crow?  Will any reporter even ask her or has she become totally irrelevent in today's political system?


Good for him, sure.  He leaks a tiny bit of data that shows him in the best light, pretends to protest "fake news", then basks in his manipulated glory.  But bad for anyone else who wants to know more about his conflicts of interest.  He slayed one straw-man ("see?  I paid taxes!") while ignoring the larger issue.

What Donald "I Love Wikileaks" Trump doesn't realize is that information wants to be free.  Someone, somewhere, will eventually get access to his returns and publish them.

Seems the scoop turned to poop and even NBC isn't thrilled or feeling a "Matthews-like" tingle up it's leg.

“Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, ‘went to his mailbox’ and found my tax returns? @NBCNews FAKE NEWS!”

Trump is very familiar with this man.  Regardless as to what he says.  Trump is a liar.

And to leak a tax return of 12 years ago.  Makes me wonder.  Is this the last time he ever paid taxes?

Yes. In fact this is the only time he ever paid taxes. Trump is so brilliant he only paid taxes this one year because he knew he would be president in 2017. So he instructed his team back in 2005 to leak bits of his 2005 tax return this week to throw everyone off the trail and save his presidency.

The leaking part is just speculation.
Even the person who received the documents didn't say that was a certainty. He only said that it was possible.

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.

- forms were stamped "Client Copy"
- white house went public even before Maddow, and had unusually quick and ready response

But more than anything else -- these 2 pages show Trump in a good light.  Why would anyone else leak them?

If they oppose Trump, why post just these 2 pages?  Why post this one year, when other years were a bit more "controversial"?  Why post something that helps him?

If they support Trump, why take a risk of leaking them without authorization?  Why risk revealing something unintended?  Why leak at all, when Trump's team had declared the matter "litigated in the election"?

No, the only one who stood to gain was Team Trump.  With this "fake leak", Trump gets mondo PR:
- "the media is illegally publishing my documents!"
- "the deep state is leaking my docs!"
- "I pay my fair share of taxes!"
- "You don't need to see my tax returns -- you've already got them!"
- "let's cut IRS funding!"
- "Dave Johnston, who wrote an unkind book about me?  He's a nobody!"
- "I won't be able to use the 'audit excuse' with my 2016 returns, but now you don't even need them anymore!"
- "what wiretapping?  what russians?  Somebody leaked my freakin' tax returns!"

If there is another reasonable explanation that a Trump opponent would have leaked this, I'm ready to hear it.

How exactly did Trump release them?

Trump didn't release them. He left the door open, and they escaped.
