Trump attacks reporter for 2005 tax return leak

Trump attacks reporter for 2005 tax return leak

Since the return revealed no ruble laundering, Maddow took a lot of flack for anticlimactic news, but she defended herself by saying she just wants to the speak truth - and she's going to keep plugging away until she figures out the president's finances. But before we can do that, we have to explain who Stephen Colbert is, who Rachel Maddow is, what can be considered a "implication", and how, exactly, one should define the word "substance".

The joke in question: "Why did the chicken cross the road?" And roads. And how both may have ties to shadowy Russian oligarchs. She got a standing ovation when she came onstage, which proves what a hero she is!

Imitating Maddow, the late night comedy host did a mock segment in which he teased a "very significant" joke heard by Trump.

Trump has repeatedly refused to release his tax returns, drawing criticism throughout his campaign past year and speculation from his political rivals he was hiding something. He's the author of "The Making of Donald Trump" and an expert on tax policy.

Chinese Firm With Government Ties Gives Kushner Family 'Sweetheart Deal'
Through the deal with Anbang, Kushner Companies will get $400 million in cash, according to The Real Deal. Kushner will excuse himself from any issues where his impartiality may be reasonably questioned.

You don't need to be a tax lawyer to get a sense of how incomplete a picture that draws.

"Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, "went to his mailbox" and found my tax returns?" It's a long tradition in the news business. Maddow and Johnston speculated on Tuesday's show about whether Trump had something to do with the document turning up in Johnston's mail.

People were disappointed with the reveal that Maddow only had two pages of a 2005 tax return that was all above board but according to Maddow, that's why we should be interested. We're gonna get this thing answered ... Is this news or a reality show? "It is amusing to me that a president would spend this much energy and political capital to keep secret his finances and his taxes specifically and simultaneously would want to brag about how much money he made".

As a precaution, Maddow had produced an entire separate show that was ready to run in case the tax return story had to be sidelined over authenticity questions. The documents show he made more than $150 million in 2005 and paid about $38 million in federal taxes, a roughly 25 percent tax rate.
