New York Daily News Also Received Trump’s Tax Returns, But…

PicMonkey Collage - New York Daily NewsThe New York Daily News has expressed nothing but contempt for Donald Trump in recent months, but it turns out they also received that same old tax return the New York Times did but did not publish anything on it.

The Times report on these 1995 returns shows a $916 million loss for Trump that year. Trump today called them “alleged” tax returns, but defended himself as if they were real.

CNN reports tonight that the Daily News also received the same returns the Times did, sent to EIC Jim Rich on September 23.

The Times was able to vet the documents, but the Daily News apparently wasn’t:

But a source at the Daily News told CNNMoney that their paper was unsuccessful in locating a tax expert who could verify the documents.

“We received [the documents] around the same time… but were unable to track down the preparer or verify the veracity of the documents through other attempts,” the Daily News source told CNNMoney.

The New York paper briefly referenced obtaining the pages in their report on the Times bombshell:

The three documents — the first page of Trump’s New York State resident income tax return, the first page of a New Jersey nonresident tax return and the first page of a Connecticut nonresident tax return — were also obtained by the Daily News.
