Pressure is mounting today for failing MSNBC host Rachel Maddow to release her own tax returns after it was revealed she earns in excess of $7 million per year.
Maddow, a left wing, liberal lunatic, has spent the last few days promising to reveal US president Donald Trump’s stolen 2005 tax returns only to be embarrassed that all they confirm is the president paid $38 million to the IRS, representing 25% of his declared income.
Maddow, on the other hand, spent the week desperately craving publicity for her show by promising a bombshell.
‘BREAKING: We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously).’ she wittered.
Instead she spent the first twenty minutes of the program rambling incoherently.
However, hours earlier the White House scooped Maddow and revealed the details of Trump’s 2005 taxes.
Maddow has spent the night being mercilessly ridiculed on social media. Now the spotlight is on her to reveal details of her own tax returns with many wondering how she could be receiving $7 million for such a dreadful show.
For the many readers who have never heard of her, this is what $7 million buys you these days.
Maddow also now faces criminal legal action as federal law makes it illegal to publish an unauthorised tax return or ‘return information.’
According to federal statute, any violation of the law ‘shall be a felony punishable by a fine in any amount not exceeding $5,000, or imprisonment of not more than 5 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution.’
That term ‘return information’ not only applies to the amount of taxes paid, but also the amount of income, payments, receipts, deductions and other financial information that could be found on the forms.
It looks like the fiery feminist may be hoisted by her own petard.
