Rachel Maddow set Twitter on fire Monday evening by posting that she has Donald Trump’s tax return from 2005 and will disclose on her show on Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET.

The White House is taking this seriously. Um, so Donald Trump was lying when he about the IRS audit? They have a penchant for releasing things when forced. Can you say Mike Flynn? Sounds like they are completely rattled by this bombshell about to drop on MSNBC.

David Cay Johnston will be the one breaking the story. He tweeted: “On @maddow I’ll break a big story about Trump and his taxes — 9PM eastern via @DCReportMedia. I’ll be on @Lawrence, too.”

If @maddow indeed has the goods, she should be prepared for threats of lawsuits that will never materialize.
