Okay, Fifth Floor. Here’s how to handle this:
Entirely on the illegality of the leak. Loudly. Over and over and over and over again. For a whole month. And nothing else. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT, get bogged down in a quagmire in Nuanceistan over tax laws. Not one syllable about them, full stop.
And no, I don’t buy our favorite gorilla’s theory that Trump leaked them himself. Because that theory is predicated on some gossip that someone at the NYT said that the docs came in an envelope return address Trump Tower. If Trump himself had any inclination to leak them, and he wouldn’t have for all the dust that it’s kicking back in his face, he wouldn’t have snail mailed them with his own nest’s return address on the envelope.
