Rachel Maddow has Donald Trump’s tax returns and will reveal them on her show, the MSNBC host said Tuesday.
“BREAKING: We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously).” she said on Twitter.
At 5:24 PM, Pacific, Maddow clarified that she has in her possession Trump’s 2005 1040 long form.
What we've got is from 2005… the President's 1040 form… details to come tonight 9PM ET, MSNBC.

Meanwhile, author and columnist David Cay Johnson also took to Twitter to reveal he will be on Maddow’s show, breaking news about Trump and his taxes.
“On @maddow I’ll break a big story about Trump and his taxes – 9PM eastern via @DCReportMedia Ill be on @lawrence, too,” he tweeted.
The president has refused to release his tax returns despite months of urging from various media outlets, political opponents and the public.
Of course, this just made obtaining the forms that much more of a quest for journalists, though Maddow would be the first to actually accomplish it — if she does in fact have them.
The closest outlet to come to Trump’s taxes was the New York Times, who obtained Trump’s 1995 returns .
“The Rachel Maddow Show” airs 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on MSNBC.
