As reported earlier Rachel Maddow stepped on a rake earlier this week by releasing Trump’s 1040 tax return form from 2005.
Rachel’s attempted hit piece enlightened the country that President Trump paid millions in taxes; he paid a higher tax rate than Socialists Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders.
The Hill, which is no friend of President Trump, reported last night that what Rachel did may be illegal – “Disclosing a taxpayer’s information without consent IS ILLEGAL.”
Donald Trump’s private legal team is weighing a case against MSNBC and reporter David Johnston who fed the documents to Rachel Maddow. Specifically they were looking to make a case against MSNBC and reporter David Johnston. That’s what happens when someone breaks the law to get a story.
Since Trump refused to make his records public, Rachel Maddow thought she was going to a hotshot and show the world that he didn’t pay his taxes. But her plan backfired and proved he paid more, so there she sat with all that egg on her face.
No doubt Trump is angry about this, and who can blame him? In her pursuit for what she thought would be the big aha moment, she violated his right to privacy. Like other Dems she sees no shame in doing this, however, it’s going to cost them this time.
That Karma…and especially when Trump is involved, it seems….can be a real bitch.
