Request for Donald Trump tax returns- leaks required

Mrs. Mary Anne MacLeod Trump (b. 1912, in Tong, a village on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland- d. 2000 in Hyde Park), was the Scottish immigrant mother of Donald Trump. She was born in the land of the mysterious and never found Loch Ness Monster; but that reality sure doesn't given Donald Trump, her son, the authority to make international intrigue about his hidden taxes.

It makes no sense, whatsoever, for Donald Trump to pretend his tax returns are his business only and play "hard to get" with the information.  His Press Secretary Sean Spicer says there's no "there-there" regarding any scandal or connection to Russia, but it's impossible to believe in "there" when Donald Trump will not prove he is innocent of financial collaboration with the Russians. Talk about a violation of the Constitution's "Emoluments" clause? 
Article I, Section 9, Clause 8“No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present,Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.” (Wow! The framers of the US Constitution were clairvoyant!  Obviously, they foresaw Donald Trump in their visions.)
At this point, the tax debacle about Donald Trump's tax returns, the speculation about what's in the data are a greater myth than wondering if the Loch Ness Monster existed or if Big Foot is still roaming around in the Pacific Northwest?

Nessie- the shadow of the Loch Ness Monster! 
Like calling for Donald Trump's taxes.
(Maybe, we'd be better off asking for Russia to find the data?)

Moreover, with all the White House leaks (like a bathtub overflowing) gushing out, including what Donald Trump wears in the middle of the night, seems like somebody should be able to find his tax returns, laying around in a mayonnaise jar someplace.  Even the Clinton's long lost "White Water" billing papers eventually showed up, just like magic, sitting in plain view, on a White House table.
The New York Times archives report from eons ago, in 1996, shows how absolutely anything is possible:

After nearly two years of searches and subpoenas, the White House said this evening that it had unexpectedly discovered copies of missing documents from Hillary Rodham Clinton's law firm that describe her work for a failing savings and loan association in the 1980's.

Well, here's the newest mysterious and never to be duplicated story of the 21st century. Where are Donald Trump's taxes? Apparently, there are nefarious reasons why he won't release the information. Otherwise, this mystery would be solved.  

Where's the leaks from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS?). I'd be willing to bet those tax returns are hiding in a dossier underneath
somebody's bed collecting dust bunnies, just waiting for the right time to appear - clandestinely, or course.  They exist someplace outside of the IRS but the exact location is yet to be determined.

Here's one open call for their disclosure:

NYT Staffer Urges IRS to Leak Trump's Tax Returns:

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof is urging IRS workers to leak President Donald Trump's tax returns to him.

Kristof, a longtime staffer at the Times, made his plea to the IRS on Twitter:

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.  One response is as I've already demised: "
I have been thinking that very thing. If only a certain tax return WOULD show up..." from a Twitterzin named Steven Tuit at

Of course, The Hill noted that releasing an individual's unauthorized tax returns is a felony.

"While reporters who publish illegally obtained information that they did not solicit are traditionally not prosecuted, the legal picture becomes less clear if the reporters are involved in the leaking of the information," it said. The Times received a portion of Trump's 1995 tax documents from a source last September and printed it a few days later, according to The Hill. It prompted a letter from Trump's attorney, who claimed publishing the documents was "illegal."

Times Editor Dean Baquet has said he would risk jail time to publish Trump's taxes returns. The Daily Caller reported the "unauthorized release of an individual's tax returns is punishable by a fine of $5,000 and up to five years in prison."

(Hmmm, seems like a small risk legal, IMO, to solve one of the greatest political mysteries of all time, after the missing and never found 18 minutes of erased Watergate tape conversations.)

(Nessie?  Hey Nessie? Where are you?)- Trump taxes are like calling up the Loch Ness Monster.  There's obviously something misty lurking in that "Loch Ness", metaphor tax returns

("Russia if you are listening?")
