Rachel Maddow refused to bow to Donald Trumpís baseless threats. After the Trump White House had threatened her, the MSNBC host reported on a leak of Trumpís 2005 tax return.

Video:
......

Maddow said, ďThe White House confirmed to us tonight that this return is real. They threatened us and said it is illegal for us to publish it. It is not illegal for us to publish it.Ē

Itís true that the unauthorized release of federal tax returns is a criminal offense, however Maddow argued on the air that releasing the tax returns was a matter of public interest, given that every single president has done so since Nixon except for this one, who just so happens to be under scrutiny for his foreign ties. Thus MSNBC was exercising its First Amendment right.

Trump promised to release his tax returns if elected, and then once elected had his surrogates announce that no one cared. Polls disagree with the Trump administrationís claims on the matter of his tax returns. Americans think they do matter and they want to see them.

3. Well, well, well it looks to me

like what she was doing last night was very legit. It now seems to me that the dictator is kinda sorta very upset. If this was something handed over by him he would not be this upset and his lawyer would not be upset either.
