Rachel Maddow on Tuesday teased a bombshell report, posting on Twitter that her MSNBC show has “Trump tax returns.”
“Seriously,” she added.
BREAKING: We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC.

Prior to going on the air, Maddow updated her Twitter account:
What we've got is from 2005… the President's 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET, MSNBC.

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.
In January, Trump rebuffed calls from the public to release his returns—including a record-breaking number of signers on a WhiteHouse.gov petition.
“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.
We will have more information as this story develops.
These 6 former Trump officials are most likely to throw him under the bus in 2020
Former Trump White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said on Monday that he believed we would soon see a groundswell of former Trump administration officials coming out to publicly denounce the president ahead of his 2020 reelection bid in an effort to warn Americans of his unfitness for office.
Given that the Trump White House has experienced record turnover during its two-and-a-half year existence, there is no shortage of disgruntled former officials who could come out against the president's reelection campaign within the next year.
Trump’s ignorance has touched off a new crisis in Kashmir
While Americans parse conspiracy theories about billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s demise in a Manhattan jail cell, Trump’s sinister role in helping light a fuse in one of the most dangerous areas of the world has gone virtually unnoticed – by the U.S. that is.
India’s abrupt takeover on Aug. 5 of the Muslim-majority Kashmir state was a double whammy for the seven million inhabitants of this once-storied Himalayan kingdom nominally ruled by India and bordered by arch-enemy Pakistan as well as China, both of which claim territory in the region. All three countries have nuclear weapons.
Is Trump right? Is there ‘something going on’ at Fox News?
President Donald Trump denounced Fox News after the network released a poll showing him lagging behind the four current frontrunners for the Democratic presidential nomination.
"Fox has changed, and my worst polls have always been from Fox. There's something going on at Fox — I'll tell you right now," Trump told reporters Sunday in New Jersey. "And I'm not happy with it."
The president went on to list which talent on the Fox News roster he was pleased with, while also suggesting that the hosts of the presidential debates could be determined by who treats him most favorably.
"Fox was treated very badly by the Democrats — very, very badly having to do with the Democrats and other things. And I think Fox is making a big mistake," Trump added. "Because you know, I'm the one who calls the shots on the really big debates. I guess we're probably planning on three of them. And I'm not happy with Fox."
