      yes son just called and had received breaking news alert via channel 9 news in florida that Rachel Maddow has a copy of Trump’s tax returns.

      From what I’ve read on Twitter, this David Johnston has a good reputation as an investigative journalist on issues related to taxes. He has won a Pulitzer prize.

        He is one of the best. I highly recommend that you get your hands on everything he’s written. He has some books, and of course his many articles. He is fantastic.

      Which makes him a dangerous man, leveraged to the hilt for things that he can never even THINK about paying back…unless he cuts deals for HIMSELF that aren’t good for AMERICA. It was all the fraud behind the curtain….We shall see….He’ll be even MORE pissed that he got ratted out…

      • March 14, 2017 at 10:09 pm

        Just what we knew about his debts told us that much. I’n no accountant but with 2 loans over 500M tells me that he’s living high in the hog and leveraged the the hilt.

    I mentioned on the last thread that the NYT said there was more when they revealed their info that Trump hadn’t paid taxes in 20 years. We never heard a follow-up……

    • March 14, 2017 at 9:46 pm

      I’m at a loss. I expected more. Am I being a Debbie Downer?

      • March 14, 2017 at 9:49 pm

        I’m only reading what’s on twitter but it sounds to me like Trump or his cronies released those taxes to distract from something else that’s about to go down.

        • March 14, 2017 at 9:52 pm

          See, this is why I think it might be a head fake of some sort:

            March 14, 2017 at 11:56 pm

            My bet is that the Trump lawyers culled through his taxes to find the year where he earned the most and paid the most taxes. Then they sent the two pages that do not show who he owes money to the journalist. It serves multiple purposes trying to put the tax scream away, change the topic off of connections with Russia and not talk about the bad CBO numbers on how many would lose healthcare with the GOP bill.

        • March 14, 2017 at 9:55 pm

          Interesting to see. I just thought it would have been more.I’m of the mind this a distraction. I really don’t get the big news here. Just the cynic in me.

          Why just the 2 pages, that was quickly pre-empted by the dirt bag? Hmmmm

          • March 14, 2017 at 9:59 pm

            That’s just it. We saw how quickly he released a statement with details to rebut it. Where did that come from within such a short timeframe?

    weird timing on this tax return stuff. hope she’s not being played, as dan rather was. they leaked him faked docs (even though the main story aspects were true!), he ran with them, and then they discredited him for pushing fake documents. was carefully planned out. why would it be the one remaining “liberal” on msnbc to have the tax forms? if she’s being set up, then they’ll use this to get her off the air. guess we’ll find out soon enough!

    I hope Wikileaks is the one that leaked Orange Agent’s tax returns.

    And I hope they are not alternative tax returns!

    okay, you can call me a nut. I think Trump & cohorts (most of the close ones) have been in it up to their eyeballs w/Putin for a good while.. years. I think the EO to ultimately shut down our govt agencies/ dept.. has always been the plan.. removing/weakening healthcare, weaken the people/ relentlessly attack our democracy/what makes us strong, safe, comfortable (for the most part). And in rides Putin- without firing a shot. What does Putin want? The biggest/wealthiest entity we have that no one else has: Our military.

    TBH…. this reveal of Trump’s 2005 tax return does not give much info about Trumps finances and dealings foreign and domestic.
    There is soooo much more paperwork attached to these 2 pages of the 1040 that we are not seeing and which would give us the
    real details that we need to see. Actually what is shown tonight puts Trump in more of a positive light, which is not what we want.
    Hopefully the leaks will continue with more in-depth revelations.

      It was over hyped (promoted) a tad bit by MSNBC for what it was in my opinion.Chris Hayes apparently even had a countdown clock to Rachel’s show. It was a good get but as you stated without the details of where that income came from we are still unable to determine who “owns” him.

        March 15, 2017 at 12:13 am

        Like my tax accountant told me they would not discover much by a two page tax form. My thoughts are the Trump associates found his best income and most paid tax year and leaked it to the journalist. Benefits answers some tax complaints, changes the subject off of bad healthcare numbers and Russian connections story. It fits his previous behaviors.

    These are old tax returns. They “found” their way into the public arena to deflect us from Russia.
    Don’t be swayed.

      i was suspicious (above) before maddow’s show began last night. his press office put out a statement with details about what maddow was going to be showing before she even showed it?!? they knew in advance what her docs said, and agent orange was using it to say, “see, i pay taxes!”?? i bet the numbers on this form are completely fake so he (the “the news”) can go around saying he’s paid so much in taxes.

      and why 2005? that’s before the big crash where real estate people especially took a bath. also, just two pages? similar to when mitt rmoney supposedly released his one tax return, but was just the first two pages and didn’t show the meaty parts that would show all the foreign shell companies he surely uses to avoid paying his fair share for america. i hope more comes out, but so far not too impressed with how maddow handled this.

    Good morning all. Remember couple weeks ago, I asked y’all to watch The Voice. One of our worship leaders was going to be on. Well, he was the LAST one last night. All teams were full except Alicia Keys. She kept saying over and over that she was waiting for “something special.” Chris was it!!!!!!!!!! OMG! So exciting. His (now) fiance had bone marrow cancer last year and during surgery, she flat-lined. He promised God if she lived, he would ask her to marry him and he would try out for The Voice. He even said during his ‘story’ that there may only be one spot left, but he was going to sing for that one spot. If any of you watch, please load the app on your phone so you can vote for him. Chris Blue.

    I am little over halfway home. Gotta get in shower and get on my way.

Donald Trump and his lying birth certificate search. Shut up Donald Trump and grow the eff up, you weak-minded baby.

    • March 15, 2017 at 10:33 am

      Exactly 57…I posted about that last night. The only thing that Rachel might have added to the trump tax discussion
      is that it brought it back into the spotlight for the night. Otherwise it was more favorable to Trump than not,unfortunately.
      We need detailed attachments,schedules and sub-schedules that will show sources of income, deductions and expenses
      along with Net operating losses( NOLs). More leaks please.
