Did Donald Trump just leak his own
tax return to make himself look good?

Independent [UK], by Andrew Buncombe

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 3/15/2017 10:08:45 PM

New York - For almost as long as anyone can remember, people have been asking Donald Trump to release his taxes. During the presidential election campaign, the New York tycoon said he would happily release them, once they had finished being audited by the Inland Revenue Service. But as time went by, Mr Trump seemed more and more reluctant to do so, especially after the New York Times obtained a return from 1996 that suggested he may have paid no federal income tax that year whatsoever. The White House made clear he would not making them available and Mr Trump

Comments:
Yep that´s it. Trump knew in advance that the reporter would run to Madcow, she would bungle the reporting of it, and the public would just shrug.

Buncombe better talk to Philip Bump of the WaPo. He has considered the whole matter and doesn’t believe President Trump leaked it.

Nope.
Clintonista released it.
Consider this: Maddow´s Twitter feed was exploding with fellow media travelers whooping it up over her ´scoop´ and couldn´t believe she got ´the get´.

20 minutes in, people start to think that this hyperbole was going to reveal the end all and be all to ´get Trump´.

Not one minute after her reveal, every blue checked account just lambasted her, with Rosie O´Donnell being the first.

If they were able to see that this was garbage, even WITH the long drawn out connect-the-dots-that-aren´t-there, why couldn´t Johnson and Maddow?

Why did these two supposedly look at these two documents and proclaim this breaking news and a big deal?

Because someone they trusted gave them the documents and they took that person´s word and reputation and believed it. Unquestionably. The person who provided it had such authority that rational thought went out the window.

That is why, when viewed by a third parties, it didn´t hold up.

No, this was not dropped off anonymously in Johnson´s mailbox.

There is another big reason he did not leak it.

He said he did not, and I believe him.

Does anybody believe that Maddow bothered to actually read those two pages before she hyped up how she would be revealing them? I think she just assumed the information would be damning Trump.

Just because someone´s on TV it doesn´t mean they´re all that smart. Especially if that someone is a leftist reporter.

#3 makes some very persuasive points. Until right now, I was pretty certain Trump or Bannon masterminded the setup to make NBC look idiotic. But I do agree with #3´s point that Maddow/Johnson surely HAD to know going in that there was not much "there" there in the 2 pages. So it´s reasonable to wonder why they proceeded to humiliate themselves? It makes sense that they did it because they had complete, 100% faith in whoever gave them the documents and that their trust in the leaker overrode all logic and reasoning. I read somewhere that these tax returns had been held since JUL and not released until now? If that´s true, we should also be wondering about the timing of the release.

I think it´s entirely possible, even probable, that Trump did leak it. But if so, so what? The media are squalling for him to release all his tax returns. So, maybe he released this one.

Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme has died of esophageal cancer and complications from heart disease, according to published reports. He was 73 years old. Demme is best known for directing “The Silence of the Lambs,” the 1991 horror-thriller that was a box office smash and a critical triumph. The story of an FBI analyst (Jodie Foster) who uses a charismatic serial killer (Anthony Hopkins) to track a murderer became only the third film in history to win Academy Awards in all the top five categories ( picture, actor, actress, director, and adapted screenplay), joining the ranks of “It Happened One Night” and

United Airlines is looking into a report that a giant rabbit died on a flight en route to Chicago from London, according to The Associated Press. The rabbit´s breeder, Annette Edwards, told the AP that the 3-foot-long rabbit known as Simon was just 10 months old and had been purchased by a celebrity whom she did not name.

It´s expensive to live in San Francisco — even if you make six figures. In an article published earlier this year, The Guardian reported on an anonymous Twitter employee in his 40s who says that, even on a $160,000 annual salary, he´s barely scraping by in Silicon Valley. "I didn´t become a software engineer to be trying to make ends meet," he told The Guardian. The employee´s biggest expense is the $3,000 monthly rent he pays on a two-bedroom house where he lives with his wife and two kids, which he describes as "ultra cheap." "Families are priced out of

New research suggests a large amount of methane was released in the Arctic Ocean during a period of warming 110 million years ago and the methane "burp" points to the possibility of a similar release in today´s warming conditions. The discovery happened in the remote High Arctic, on Ellef Ringnes Island, about 500 kilometres north of Resolute, Nunavut. During the Cretaceous period, 55 million years before the dinosaurs disappeared, the island was deep underwater. Suddenly, from under the mud, bubbles of methane began to emerge as frozen deposits began to thaw. The bubbles left traces in the form of over 130 mounds that

A controversial federal judge thinks firing squads and guillotines should come back in style as the debate over executions in Arkansas rages on. Ninth Circuit Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski, in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” set to air Sunday, said conducting lethal injections is a sham that masks that fact that people are getting killed. “The use of lethal injection is the way of lying to ourselves, to make it look like executions are peaceful, benign ... like going to sleep,” said Kozinski, who isn’t involved in the Arkansas proceedings. “And they’re not. They’re brutal things.” So then

African Americans get less sleep than whites,
an inequality stretching back to slavery

When we study racial inequality, we tend to consider factors that affect people while they are awake. Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well-being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past. African Americans suffer from a “sleep gap”: Fewer black people are able to sleep for the recommended

The final count is expected to be close to that early calculation.

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch. The filthy fashion statement isn´t actually new -- the jeans have been for sale at Nordstrom as well as at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for quite some time.

The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast both walked back stories claiming Sean Hannity sexually harassed a former Fox News guest. Both sites changed their headline after Debbie Schlussel pushed back against reports she was sexually harassed by Hannity in an exclusive interview with LawNewz.com. Schlussel appeared on a local radio show Friday and detailed an incident from the early 2000’s in which the Fox host invited her to his hotel in Detroit. When she rebuffed his repeated advances, Schlussel claimed, Hannity stopped inviting her onto his show. Shortly after the radio interview, Hannity strongly denied the allegations, stating that
