Well, this sure is interesting: MSNBC host Rachel Maddow claims to have a copy of "Trump's" tax returns. She tweeted that she'll be unveiling them on her show at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday night.
Maddow did not specify which Trump nor which year the returns were for.

It's unclear as to why someone would release the returns now. The election is over. Trump won. This can't possibly change anything.
