President Trump’s personal attorneys are exploring their legal options after his tax returns were exposed on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show this week, per Newsmax.

His legal team believes the network and an involved journalist could have violated federal privacy laws.

Check it out:

A portion of Trump’s returns were published by DCReport.org, which is run by Pulitzer Prize winning reporter David Cay Johnston. They were also broadcast on “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC.

The forms reportedly showed Trump earned $153 million in 2005 and paid $36.6 million in federal taxes, USA Today reported.

And The Hill reported: “The return itself reveals nothing untoward, but questions as to its origin and publication do raise serious concerns.”

The President said months ago he’d not release his tax returns under any circumstances, which fueled democrats’ accusations that he had something to hide.

In a very satisfying turn of events for conservatives, however, Maddow’s “big reveal” early this week proved otherwise—nevertheless, the President feels his privacy has been violated.

“I have no idea where they got it but it’s illegal and you’re not supposed to have it and it’s not supposed to be leaked…It’s certainly not an embarrassing tax return at all, but it’s an illegal thing they’ve been doing it, they’ve done it before and I think it’s a disgrace,” Trump told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.

The “Unauthorized Disclosure Of Information Act” is apparently the legislation he might be protected under, however some legal experts have suggested that might be a difficult case to make.

  1. If I .. or you .. speaking ‘regular people’ did the things these ‘privileged’ do .. we would suffer the consequences of our actions. We see celebs of various flavors, politicians, reporters and such constantly violate laws and given a free pass, time after time. I find that I am tired of this .. so very, very tired. I want to see their faces peering out from between bars.

    • That’s the Democrats for you. They constantly lecture middle America about honor and decency, when they themselves have no honor and no decency.

  2. Here is the thing. President Trump has many more important things he could be doing rather than needing to act on the “Liberal Misguided Children” of the media and the congress. This is getting so pathetic it stinks. I believe it’s time we as citizens take action and impeach the people in the government who don’t support President Trump and then take down the media and put responsible people into place.

  3. Everyone should have the expectation that their private papers be private. I think you have to make an example of MSNBC. It is an illegal act and must be prosecuted. For those who do not understand there is no requirement for anyone seeking public office to release tax information. It is only in modern times it has been done strictly on a volunteer basis. I do not see how it is germane to electing people to office especially people from the private sector which is what we want more of.

  4. As a State employee, if I reveal any FTI (Federal Tax Information), either willfully or by accident, I am subject to a fine of up to $5.000.00 and 5 years in prison. I know that because 4 times a year I am required to take the same classes to remind me of it.

    They need to be arrested and tried or none of this means anything.

    • I hope they catch the leakers but I see it kind a tough to do in the IRS when they buy computers that need their hard drives destroyed regularly. Nice job Lois Lerner.

  5. All the more reason to implement the Fair Tax Act. NO more April 15, NO more IRS being used as a political tool, NO more lobbyist lobbying for preference tax breaks.Only new product would be subject to the Fair Tax. Buy a 2nd owned house – no federal tax; buy a used car, no federal tax. Check it out – Google Fair Tax.
