MNSBC | This 2005 Donald Trump tax return is a total nothingburger

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow spent hours touting a massive scoop: She – or more accurately, veteran investigative reporter David Cay Johnston – had gotten her hands on President Trump’s 2005 federal tax return.

Now, the history: Trump has repeatedly said that he did everything he could to pay as little tax as possible – a position, he insisted, that not only made him smart but also one that lots and lots of voters seemed to agree with.

And because of Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns, there has long been speculation that he may not have paid any taxes from the mid-1990s – when we know he reported more than $900 million in losses on his tax returns – until the mid-2000s.
