The wall around Donald Trump’s taxes cracks, a littleOne of the most closely guarded secrets in politics — Donald Trump’s income taxes — became a little bit less mysterious late Tuesday as prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston and MSNBC published a partial copy of the president’s 2005 federal filing. The documents, whose publication drew howls of outrage from the White House, did not include the most important financial data that might be collected from Trump’s full returns, including the sources of his income, his partners, to whom he paid interest, and other relationships that might feed concerns that he faces unprecedented conflicts of interest. The documents — just two pages of his filing — showed Trump would personally have paid about $ 5.3 million in federal taxes on income of over $ 150 million, after a write-down of about $ 103 million.
