The big story in the news cycle right now is the NY Times getting their hands on Donald Trump's taxes from the mid 90's.
It showed that businessman Donald Trump lost almost a billion dollars in one year and that in turn allowed him not to have to pay federal taxes for years to come. Trump said during the debate that not having to pay taxes makes him "smart".
Of course the person making $25,000 a year, might not quite see it that way.
The question is, who leaked the documents to the media?
The website Daily News Bin thinks a good bet would be Trump's second wife Marla Maples. Maples publicly insisted that if he ran for President she’d find a way to take him down before he ever got anywhere near the White House. Remarkably, she made that threat seventeen years ago, the first time Trump was flirting with the idea of entering the race.
Yet, she has been quiet this entire campaign. Some believe because Trump has threaten to financially ruin her back in 1999 if she did blab about his true nature.
But, could she have found a way around it but leaking the tax documents?
The Daily News Bin writes Marla Maples was married to Trump in the nineties and had first hand access to their tax documents from that era, but nothing since, making her just about the only person on earth in a position to leak his 1995 returns but nothing from recent years. And she has an obvious axe to grind because, well, she told us she does.
“If he is really serious about being president and runs in the general election next year, I will not be silent,” Marla Maples said all those years ago about her ex husband. “I will feel it is my duty as an American citizen to tell the people what he is really like.”
Even if Maples is revealed as the source, then all she did was leak her own tax returns, which just happened to have been filed jointly with Trump. She seems to be flaunting it, too. Hours after the New York Times published the tax documents, she tweeted a picture of orange pumpkins, as if to suggest she’d finally succeeded in turning her orange faced ex husband into one.
There is no confirmation if Maples was the one that released the returns. But, if she did, we have a feeling that Trump's orange face will be turning beat red very soon.
