It appears that MSNBC has decided to intentionally violate federal law. Host Rachael Maddow announced that she has Trump’s 2005 federal tax return in her possession and she the proceeded to divulge details from the return on air. She also claimed that her possession of the return is not illegal and claimed the 1st Amendment. Ah, sorry Maddow but breaking federal law and not only possessing but exposing someone’s federal tax return has nothing to do with the 1st Amendment and everything to do with intentional violation of federal law worthy of a long prison sentence!
But Maddow is not alone in her criminal activity. She invited tax reporter David Johnston of the DC Report on her show as apparently he is the one who obtained the tax return but then he says he simply received it in an email. So it appears we have 3 criminals operating in this case and the DOJ and IRS need to immediately investigate and prosecute these people. It’s time to jerk their chains and let them know that they, the MSM, are NOT the little gods they think they are nor are they above the law!!
The White House simply responded that in tax year 2005 the President did indeed pay $38 million in taxes on $150 million income. Johnston also claimed on the program that Trump has done business with a drug king pin and mobsters and said these actions justify the release of the President’s return so that the American people can know more about Trumps financial dealings. Ah….sorry Johnston but your “justification” doesn’t excuse the CRIME you just committed with Maddow on national television!
The White House statement said, “You know you are desperate for ratings when you are WILLING TO VIOLATE THE LAW and push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago. It is totally ILLEGAL to STEAL AND PUBLISH tax returns. The dishonest media can continue to make this part of their agenda while the President will focus on his, which includes tax reform that will benefit all Americans.”
NOW is the time to start bringing these little MSM gods and goddesses to justice! You’d think that someone at MSNBC would know that their rights END just as soon as they step on someone else’s rights and that is exactly what they did tonight!!
