Donald Trump's Tax Returns Revealed by Rachel Maddow (Video)

The moment you have been waiting for has arrived… Rachel Maddow released Donald Trump‘s federal tax returns from 2005.

Maddow received some criticism on social media after she drew out the reveal. She didn’t actually disclose the information on the tax returns until about 20 minutes into the program. Instead, she first talked about Trump‘s ties to Russia.

The documents came from journalist David Cay Johnston, who says he obtained the tax returns when someone mailed them to him. He even suggested that Trump himself might have leaked them.

The returns revealed that Trump earned more than $150 million in 2005. He paid $5.3 million in regular federal income tax and an additional $31 million in alternative minimum tax. Watch more details in the video below.

Make sure to read the White House’s statement responding to the release of the tax returns.

    in 2005. if trump leaked the document himself, it would makes sense to show the record from a year or period of time, in which he paid his taxes. nobody would leak documents which show he or she is a criminal.

    great show but they got, got by the WH. don’t u find it interesting that Flynn resigns, jeff sessions recuses himself from investigations 4 lying under oath & than all of a sudden trump changes the subject “obama wiretapped my phone.” when the justice administration gives the WH a deadline to show proof of wiretapping (which was yesterday) all of a sudden a reporter is mailed part of an 2005 trump tax return lol. bc now that is the new story & not obama wiretapping his phone or russian ties lol. it’s a pattern. with this guy, much like with ur children, when they get in trouble u gotta hold their feet to the fire & get the story out.

    but this only begs the question, if ur willing to show part of a tax return from a not so recent year, why wouldn’t u show ur tax returns from the last recent years? who cares about 2005….we care about 2015/2016 tax returns lol….but i digress…just another chapter in this game

    Enjoyed the discussions and t h e “Wow” moment the one pundit said that Trump probably leaked the document himself, as he (Trump) has a history of doing things like that.
