Maddow has received a ratings bump in recent weeks through her dogged reporting of the Trump Organization and Trump administration’s multiple ties to Russia. Trump broke with precedent during the 2016 election, becoming the the first president in 40 years to refuse to make his tax returns public.

“You know the only ones who care about my tax returns are reporters,” Trump said.
Now, one reporter looks poised to put that to the test.
