In an open exchange on twitter Sunday with Matthew Yglesias, editor of Vox, propagandist for the #FakeNews New York Times, Nicholas Kristof solicited Internal Revenue Service staffers for President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

What Kristof is proposing is a felony.

26 U.S. Code § 7213 – Unauthorized disclosure of information

It shall be unlawful for any person to whom any return or return information (as defined in section 6103(b)) is disclosed in a manner unauthorized by this title thereafter willfully to print or publish in any manner not provided by law any such return or return information. Any violation of this paragraph shall be a felony punishable by a fine in any amount not exceeding $5,000, or imprisonment of not more than 5 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution…

Last September, New York Times executive editor, Dean Baguet and Washington Post associate editor, Bob Woodward said that they would risk prison to publish then citizen, Trump’s tax returns.

At once Kristof was put on notice by many on twitter who made it clear that said disclosure is a felony. The FBI was also alerted.
