After the Rachel Maddow Trump tax return belly flop broadcast live on MSNBC last night, liberals are kicking their desperation up a notch.
Maddow thought she had a juicy scoop, but instead revealed Donald Trump paid a higher federal tax rate in 2005 than Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have in recent years.
In response, Clinton ally David Brock took to Twitter to offer an astonishing $5,000,000 for “Trump’s complete, legally obtained tax returns.”
More questions than answers tonight. I'm offering a $5m reward to anyone with Trump's complete, legally obtained tax returns.

He’s not the first to openly solicit Trump’s private records.
New York Times columnist Nick Kristof tweeted 10 days ago, “…if you’re in IRS and have a certain president’s tax return that you’d like to leak,” before providing the address for the New York Times.
But if you're in IRS and have a certain president's tax return that you'd like to leak, my address is: NYT, 620 Eighth Ave, NY NY 10018. https://t.co/ujYe100Tn9

Kristof’s request is the latest in a long line of liberals demanding to see Trump’s return.
“I’m just saying at least show us your tax returns — is the audit over? Is this the audit for eternity?” Nancy Pelosi said in February, according to the Daily Caller.
“And of course that has never been a justification for not releasing your tax returns. The president continues to hide his tax returns which could provide vital insights into what financial influence Russia has on him — whether it’s personal, political or financial.”
