Trump releases 2005 tax info ahead of report by Rachel Maddow
Boston Globe --
The White House says President Donald Trump made more than $150 million in income in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes that year.
The acknowledgment comes as MSNBC host Rachel Maddow says she has obtained part of Trump’s 2005 tax forms.
The White House is pushing back preemptively, saying that publishing those returns would be illegal.
It says, ‘‘You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago.’’
