Joe Scarborough: 'Painfully Obvious' Trump Leaked His Own Tax Returns to Distract From Russia

'This one tax return is not bad for him because he cherry picked one return from over a decade ago and had it leaked to the press,' Scarborough tweeted.

Joe Scarborough, the host of MSNBC's popular political program "Morning Joe" tweeted early Wednesday morning an accusation that President Trump leaked his own 2005 tax returns to "distract from Russia hearings and the Trumpcare meltdown." 

“This one tax return is not bad for him because he cherry picked one return from over a decade ago and had it leaked to the press,” Scarborough tweeted.

He followed with a second tweet insisting, “The Trump camp released one positive tax return to distract from Russia hearings and the Trumpcare meltdown. That's painfully obvious.”

Scarborough is refering journalist David Cay Johnston receiving Trump's tax returns from an anonymous source, which was quickly reported on by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
