Trump's 2005 tax bill revealed in fresh leak

US President Donald Trump attends a meeting with US House Deputy Whip team at the East room of the White House in Washington in this

She also was criticized for waiting almost 20 minutes before revealing what the tax records showed.

The two were discussing Pascrell's push for President Trump to release his tax returns when Maddow ended the interview on her show.

Maddow had tweeted less than 90 minutes before her show about the tax return scoop and word quickly spread online.

- Jacob McGimsey (@JakeMcGimsey) March 15, 2017Not sure how 1 year of returns from 12 years ago proves Trump is not dodging paying taxes.

And as it turns out, the report didn't end up delivering much in terms of substance, showing some basics income and deductions for the year but critically not where the income came from.

Despite those record-setting numbers for the show, it didn't appear to hurt Fox News' Tucker Carlson, who finished behind Maddow with 3 million viewers. Sometimes it's proper to contextualize an issue. They took his "taxes paid" ($38.4 million) and divided it by "earnings before losses" ($151 million).




And the cable-cutting generation under 35 who scrambled to stream the Maddow show or watch from a bar or a parent's home seemed to learn something, too: that the world of cable-TV has its own language and its own inexplicable mores.

That was obvious only a minute into her program when she told an audience anxious for the damning goods: "You may have heard, we've got some significant breaking news tonight".

Maddow's broadcast was reportedly the second-highest-rated program in MSNBC history. "I definitely feel like, hey, if you're new, let me meet you where you are".

Oh, Maddow had the taxes: two pages, front and back, of President Trump's 1040 form from 2005, which the White House acknowledged were authentic.

Her show has been on a high since Trump took office.

Trump says he has not released his tax returns because they are under audit by the Internal Revenue Service. "In journalism, it's called 'burying the lede, '" wrote Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan, while Slate called the whole thing a "cynical, self-defeating spectacle". Previously, she was The New York Times public editor, and the chief editor of The Buffalo News, her hometown paper.
