Rachel Maddow has been trying awfully hard to slam President Donald Trump regarding his tax returns.
As many of us guessed, there was absolutely nothing unusual in Trump’s returns. However, Maddow got some bad news today when she learned she had actually broken the law when she showed the tax return to her audience.
According to The Hill, which we all know is not pro-Trump, what Maddow did was illegal:
“Disclosing a taxpayer’s information without consent IS ILLEGAL,” they wrote.
“The unauthorized release or publishing of federal tax returns is a criminal offense, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 and up to five years in jail,” Syracuse.com reported. “Maddow, however, argued that MSNBC was exercising its First Amendment right to publish information in the public interest.”
The White House released a statement making it clear that Trump did not give his consent and that Maddow had indeed broken the law.
“You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago,” the statement read. “Despite this substantial income figure and tax paid, 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.”
This is threatening to our country and jeopardizes Trump’s legacy and validity as president.
It is now up to the law enforcement agencies to conduct an investigation on Maddow and punish her for breaking the law.
No one is entitled got get away with a crime!
