Rachel Maddow’s terrible week just got even worse! After Maddow leaked President Trump’s tax returns, he said this was illegal and he’s considering a lawsuit against her.
The media said this was just an empty threat by President Trump, but Sean Spicer just told Rachel Maddow that she did BREAK THE LAW!
Her actions were a violation of 26 U.S. Code § 7213 – Unauthorized disclosure of information, which is punishable by up to 5 years in JAIL! SHARE on Facebook if you think Trump should prosecute her!
Maddow tried to say this was her “1st amendment right” to publish Trump’s documents, but what do you think?
Could you imagine if Conservatives were stealing and publishing Obama’s old personal documents?
From Gateway Pundit:
According to the Hill, which is no friend of President Trump, “Disclosing a taxpayer’s information without consent IS ILLEGAL.”
The unauthorized release or publishing of federal tax returns is a criminal offense, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 and up to five years in jail. Maddow, however, argued that MSNBC was exercising its First Amendment right to publish information in the public interest.
