Judge Confirms Trump Tax Records OK, But Leaker May Have a Problem

The New York Times recently released Donald Trump’s 1995 tax returns, which showed over a $900 million loss. There’s nothing illegal or wrong about that; however, the person who leaked the returns to the New York Times may be in some legal hot water according to a former judge.

Here’s the report from Planet Free Will and Zero Hedge:

“Appearing on Fox and Friends Monday morning, former New Jersey Superior Court Judge and Senior Judicial Analyst for Fox News Channel Andrew Napolitano explained that Donald Trump’s tax records that were released by the New York Times on Sunday show that the presidential nominee did nothing wrong.

“According to Napolitano, Trump was within the law when he declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax returns, which amounts to a substantial deduction.

“When asked by Fox’s Steve Doocy if Trump did anything wrong, the former judge responded: ‘No. In the United States of America we tell the government what we owe, the government doesn’t tell us.’  

“Napolitano told the Fox and Friends cast that the person who provided the tax records to the New York Times ‘probably broke the law’ and is criminally liable.

“[Trump’s] lawyer Marc E. Kasowitz, wrote the Times shortly after the report was published saying the publication of the tax documents was illegal ‘because Mr. Trump has not authorized the disclosure of any of his tax returns,’ and threatened ‘prompt initiation of appropriate legal action‘ in response.”

 

We’re willing to bet this leak was authorized or encouraged by Hillary Clinton – or someone in her campaign.
