"The only news here is that the more than 20-year-old alleged tax document was illegally obtained.."
So says the Trump campaign.
If it's an "alleged" document and not real then it wasn't illegally obtained, or indeed obtained at all, it was fabricated.
But if it was illegally obtained then that means it's real and belongs to Trump.
The Trump campaign is trying to have it both ways: It wasn't taken from our candidate and it was illegally taken from our candidate.

It sounds to me like manipulation of the system for personal gain, for naked profit, and without regard for the services which benefit everybody that taxes pay for in the first place.
The return address said Trump Tower, but that may not mean anything.
Whoever has access to Trump's taxes, just hurled a timely grenade. Bless them!
His recent comments blaming women for men's affairs have to rankle and they were her tax returns too.
Given tRump's penchant for serious revenge with no time limits, I'd be really nervous of getting caught.
You know, just know, he's got his private "dicks" on their trail as we speak.
Whoever did this feels so passionately about fucking with him, they decided it was worth the risk.
In my eyes, it was an act of a patriot!
after Barack Obama's birth certificate?
Really clandestine characters that can slither around unseen and disappear in the darkness of the night:
John Miller and John Barron!
...and if they filed any returns jointly, wouldn't she have the legal right to release them-?
of news sources over this one.
Should keep Michael Cohen real busy for some time.
Go ahead, Donald. Pick up the phone and bite somebody's head off.
totally perfect response.
I could almost see Michael Cohen doing his mob lawyer thing on cable news...
All right-thinking Americans should know this.

anything that would hurt Putin.
I wonder where was this concern when Democrats where getting hacked.
that the potential tsunami of pile-on is most likely imminent.
As someone previously posted, the dike has broken.
She sees the writing in the wall, Trump will trade her in for a new trophy soon and she never wanted to be First Lady anyways.
If you have an account, could be fun to get it trending
campaign, there may be still more goodies in the tin.
And I happen to love cookies.
failed to respond correctly to Putin's puppet strings. The real question are the documents the real tax returns.
deal. He says he no longer has copies. He explained how he had to use a typewriter because the software wouldn't generate
enough digits for the loss!
promote his business ability with these losses. So many lies by Trump and his team.
Irrespective of the politics of the situation, he is divulging information about his client.
On Wednesday, The Times presented the tax documents to Jack Mitnick, a lawyer and certified public accountant who handled Mr. Trumps tax matters for more than 30 years, until 1996. Mr. Mitnick was listed as the preparer on the New Jersey tax form.
Mr. Mitnick, 80, now semiretired and living in Florida, said that while he no longer had access to Mr. Trumps original returns, the documents appeared to be authentic copies of portions of Mr. Trumps 1995 tax returns. Mr. Mitnick said the signature on the tax preparer line of the New Jersey tax form was his, and he readily explained an obvious anomaly in the way especially large numbers appeared on the New
York tax document.
A flaw in the tax software program he used at the time prevented him from being able to print a nine-figure loss on Mr. Trumps New York return, he said. So, for example, the loss of -915,729,293 on Line 18 of the return printed out as 5,729,293. As a result, Mr. Mitnick recalled, he had to use his typewriter to manually add the -91, thus explaining why the first two digits appeared to be in a different font and were slightly misaligned from the following seven digits.
This is legit, he said, stabbing a finger into the document.
or under legal requirements? I don't think so. He is under no obligation to confirm or deny his signature, and doing it is actually damaging to his former client.
If someone brought a copy of your tax returns to your accountant. A copy this person should not have. Would you want your accountant to answer questions regarding the document? If he was still active as an accountant, I would think he would face sanctions by his profession (I am not familiar with it). Given Trump's proclivity to sue, I think I would expect to be sued.
If the profession doesn't have a problem with it, then I would consider very carefully ever the use of an accountant for tax returns.
Trust me I don't want Trump as president.
So, I imagine he is aware of his legal responsibilities.
Personally, I don't have a problem with him confirming his signature and explaining the software anomaly.
I do my own taxes. I have no plans to run for public office so I'm not worried about anyone making an issue of them.
Many of us have been expecting a leak of Trump's tax returns for some time. He clearly has something to hide. Let him sue whomever.
I think people have a right to see what he's hiding.
Sometimes the concept of justice is best served in a way that shines the light on the truth, without regard to the "law".
worried about long-term consequences for the country, the world, and the people in his life that he cares about.
once when I was testifying in Federal Court on an employment issue. I was a City government employee. The Defense Attorney showed me a copy of computer generated forms. I was asked whether I had seen them before, I had of course, next question was who generated them, my answer was my Department, how did I know that, well because they were from a dot matrix printer & my department was the only department that had such a printer.
I was a Defense witness, because the City had screwed up immensely on the issue(s) in question.
The tax document in question was illegally obtained.
The tax document does not exist.
Perhaps someone inadvertently obtained the tax document.
Perhaps someone sent a tax document that does not exist to the media.
Perhaps the tax document exists but the person who sent it to the media does not exist.
Perhaps the dog ate the tax document.
Perhaps whoever fabricated Barack Obama's birth certificate also created the tax document that does not exist.

Hope that clears it up for everybody.
thinks it's quite alright to ask Russia to hack into other people's information and release it? Sorry DishonestDon, you can't have it both ways.
Trump can't sue over this because if he did, he has to admit those were his documents.
If the author or anyone else out there is looking for rational thought or any semblance of logic from the Trump campaign or the Republican Party, they're going to go home with an empty snipe bag. Anti-intellectualism is in the American DNA. We are a nation prone to seek answers in magic instead of reasoning things out using whatever real evidence one can find. Liking a candidate is more attractive that choosing the most sensible political program. Our society is teetering on the brink and I'm not sure we can save it.
