After watching the Maddow Show about the “leaked” IRS return for Trump (just the 1st two pages), the thought crossed my mind that there was nothing really bad in the return, so why was it leaked? The first thing that came to mind was that Trump was possibly the leaker, that he was “punking” the new media by putting out the best year of his tax returns in say the last 15 years.
Why was that year selected by the leaker if they were trying to harm Trump? See no reason it would be. Someone at IRS that had access to the taxes could leak any and all.
Well I was not alone in this thought, the newsman that got the leak David Cay Johnston has said the same thing, he suspects Trump leaked it to him. Interesting.
(CNN)Who knows who leaked two pages of Donald Trump’s tax return.
