President Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns has been a point of contention since the presidential election – but it turns out that we might be getting some answers tonight.
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow said on Tuesday night that she has obtained Trump’s tax returns – and plans to release them at 9 p.m. on her show Tuesday evening.
BREAKING: We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC.

In a later tweet, the anchor clarified that the specific documents obtained by MSNBC were from 2005 – the same year, according to the New York Post, that Trump founded the controversial, now-defunct Trump University.
What we’ve got is from 2005… the President’s 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET, MSNBC.

Apparently, Daily Beast writer and investigative journalist David Cay Johnson is behind the findings, and he announced that he’d be appearing on Maddow’s show to “break a big story about Trump and his taxes.”

Considering the president’s notorious avoidance of the subject of his tax returns, this is likely about to be HUGE.
