On MSNBC’s Hardball on Tuesday, two panelists told host Chris Matthews that special counsel Robert Mueller likely has already obtained President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump was the only modern presidential nominee to not release his tax returns to the public.

“What’s Trump most worried about, the business end, obstruction end or the collusion piece?” Matthews asked. “Where is he most worried?”

“The financials,” Atlantic correspondent Natasha Bertrand replied. “Because of the tax returns he’s still trying to hide”

“I think Mueller probably has them,” predicted Kim Wehle, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney and Associate Independent Counsel during Whitewater investigation.”

“I think he has them, but he doesn’t want them publicly released, and there’s a reason for that,” Bertrand added.

“Why?” Matthews asked. “Because he’s not rich?”

“Maybe they show some evidence of wrongdoing,” Bertrand replied.

“His hands are smaller than we thought?” Matthews wondered.

Published

A federal judge has denied Attorney General Bill Barr's motion to have the Department of Justice represent President Donald Trump in a defamation case brought by journalist E. Jean Carroll, who says Trump raped her.

"Lewis A. Kaplan of Federal District Court in Manhattan, rejected the Justice Department’s attempt to step into the case and defend the president, and his ruling means that, for the moment, a lawsuit by the writer E.
