Scarborough says Trump leaked own tax return

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough claims President Donald Trump recently leaked his own tax returns to “distract from Russia hearings and the Trumpcare meltdown.”

Scarborough published two tweets on Wednesday that read:

“The Trump camp released one positive tax return to distract from Russia hearings and the Trumpcare meltdown. That’s painfully obvious.”

“This one tax return is not bad for him because he cherry picked one return from over a decade ago and had it leaked to the press.”

Trump was widely criticized during his campaign for not publicly releasing his tax returns. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was quick to release part of the leaked return on air Tuesday night.

Scarborough’s tweets come after the White House responded to the leaked information by releasing Trump’s 2005 tax details, publicly showing Trump received a $150 million income and paid $38 million in federal taxes in 2005.

The Hill also reports Scarborough and Trump had a good relationship prior to the 2016 election.
