Trump paid millions in taxes. Maddow thought she had the scoop, that she would turn millions against the president. But not so fast. She’s not laughing now that it’s been brought to her attention that “disclosing a taxpayer’s information without consent IS ILLEGAL.”
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. Maddow, however, argued that MSNBC was exercising its First Amendment right to publish information in the public interest.
