And just to be clear, it’s irrelevant that she’s media. The NYT refrained from publishing Trump’s tax return in October last year because it would be a felony.

The White House warned Maddow not to release the documents, as doing so is illegal!

Basically, Trump chose not to pursue legal action. NYT knew it was illegal, but published anyway. They were called on it and claimed “vital public interest” defense and got 10 liberal lawyers to agree that the defense had merit. It went no further.
It’s described here:
www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/10/02/the-new-york-times-risked-legal-trouble-to-publish-donald-trumps-tax-return/?utm_term=.5dad7ee384fc
Trump could still pursue it.
You have to understand, the White House did not release Trump’s tax return. They released a statement which indicated roughly how much he earned and how much he paid in tax. That doesn’t constitute making a tax return public.
The issue isn’t that Trump told people how much he made. It’s that Maddow released the tax return.
More to the point, Maddow addressed Trump’s statement live on the air. She said: “For the record, the First Amendment gives us the right to publish this return,” she said. “It’s not illegally published. Nor are we fake. Pinch me, I’m real.”
For the record, the First Amendment DOES NOT give you the right to publish a tax return. I’ve quoted the article of the US Code that covers disclosure, and she clearly committed a felony. The issue isn’t that she told people how much he made and paid in tax – it’s that she released his tax return, something the White House didn’t do.

  1. Rachel, Rachel Rachel- you obviously dont have any friends, they would have told you to hang up your jock strap already- you guys lost, the game is over- you can go back to wandering the halls in your soccer cleats you stupid thing.

    • It may be that Trump’s team are more keenly aware of Streisand Effect than previous admins, and they realize that prosecution may be exactly what Maddow wants for the publicity. Does it make a sound when a libtard shrieks in the forest and there’s nobody there to listen?

  2. ….and not a SINGLE FUCKING THING will happen to her. Snoop just mimed shooting Trump, AND NOT A SINGLE FUCKING THING WILL HAPPEN TO HIM, because these are puppets of the Shadow Government, and KNOW they are protected.
    I don’t think Trump has a lot of time left, EVEN though he’s bombing and illegally invading with the best of them. I think it’s his threat to the Rothschild Central Bank cartel, as was Kennedy crime.

  3. OK! It is time for Trump to show he does have a set of BALLS ! If he does nothing in this matter he may well be a “one term wonder” and could even come off looking weaker than Obama. It is one thing to “lead from behind” and yet another to duck from an open confrontation all together.

  4. So…….., WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR? GO ARREST IT (notice I said “it”). Preferably, frog-march her right off her daily hate rant. One trip to the vet to have the carpet fibers removed should improve its disposition.
