(Before It's News)

Evidently, there’s no there, there. But I have a few questions at the bottom of this blog post.

From CNBC (dated March 14, 2017):

On her Tuesday show, Rachel Maddow teased a scoop: She had Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns. It was the first time his federal returns would be released.

Small digression: MSNBC’s Maddow didn’t have them. Investigative reporter David Cay Johnston got them, and went on her show to talk about it.

Anyway, when she finally revealed what was in the taxes, it was not a huge deal. Trump earned about $150 million in income in 2005, and paid $38 million in taxes….

According to today’s Drudge Report:

TRUMP PAID HIGHER TAX RATE [25%] THAN MSNBC COMCAST [24%]… MUCH HIGHER THAN OBAMA [19%]… AND BERNIE [13%]

According to this source:

…“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,” the White House said in a statement.

Maddow, however, said that “for the record, the First Amendment gives us the right to publish the return.”…

According to Time, the two pages released are stamped “Client Copy.”

Question 1: Who leaked documents stamped as “Client Copy”?  Trump himself?  His accounting firm?

Question 2: Is it actually legal to leak a person’s tax return documents or any portion thereof without that person’s consent or without a subpoena?
