From Western Journalism, “Geraldo: Maddow’s ‘Reveal’ Of Trump’s Taxes Is Today’s Version Of Al Capone’s Vault.”
More than 30 years after his much-hyped TV event turned out to be literally nothing more than a cloud of dust, Geraldo Rivera gladly handed MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow the mantle of Al Capone’s vault Wednesday following her own much-hyped revelation of President Trump’s tax returns.
The revelation turned out to be only two pages from Donald Trump’s 2005 returns indicating he paid $38 million in total taxes.
That amounted to a 25 percent tax rate, higher than the 18.7 percent paid by former President Obama in 2015.
From Rachael’s parent network, NBC, “Trump Paid $38 Million in 2005 Federal Income Tax, White House Says Before Report.”
In a statement, the White House said the “illegally published” pages proved only that Trump “was one of the most successful businessmen in the world with a responsibility to his company, his family and his employees to pay no more tax than legally required.”
