WikiLeaks Wants You to Give Them Trump’s Tax Returns


On Sunday, WikiLeaks announced that they’d really like it if somebody, anybody, sends them President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

This comes after Trump spox Kellyanne Conway told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that the President wouldn’t bother releasing his returns.

“We litigated this all through the election,” she said. “People didn’t care. They voted for him, and let me make this very clear: Most Americans are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office. Not what his look like.”

During the presidential campaign, Trump said he would release his tax returns after the IRS was done auditing him. He has denied any wrongdoing after allegations that he misrepresenting his real fortune, and that Russian interests have some sort of leverage over him.

WikiLeak’s demand also stands in stark contrast to its alleged pro-Trump bias. They published messages hacked from the account email account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, leading to months of bad press for the Democratic candidate. Critics angry over Trump’s victory blame the organization for their influence. This bitterness has carried on post-election.
