Part of Trump's tax returns for 2005 were leaked yesterday. Some source claim that Trump leaked them, while others say he didnt (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Is there any credible evidence showing that Trump did or did not leak the documents?

    The thing about leaking through anonymous sources is that 1) there is no evidence on who the source is and 2) even if there is, it's not credible unless there's an investigation. All we can do is ask "Qui bono?" but that only tells us who the source would have been if everyone was smart and clairvoyant. – Peter Mar 15 '17 at 21:38

    Closed because there's no notable claim that Trump leaked the document as a fact. People are openly speculating and asking questions, but that does not constitute a claim. Besides it's quite unclear what evidence could be provided at this point in time on the matter. – Sklivvz Mar 15 '17 at 23:49

    He's claiming that Trump may have leaked it. It's not a statement of fact. – Sklivvz Mar 16 '17 at 2:47
