MSNBC host Rachel Maddow believes President Donald Trump may have leaked his own 2005 tax return that she revealed on her show.

"It totally could have come from Trump," Maddow said on The View Wednesday, according to The Daily Beast. "As far as I'm concerned, the only thing that matters is, is that document real? That's the story."

She said later, "We have no idea where it came from. It very well might have come from the president himself."

Maddow added that her first thought upon receiving the documents from David Cay Johnston, who received them from an anonymous source, was, "don't get pranked.

"Obviously there's such appetite to learn about his tax returns," Maddow continued. "He's the only president in 40 years that we don't have his financial information, and simultaneously with that we have this increasing knowledge about his weird overseas ties in terms of people on his campaign.

"It's the perfect environment to prank somebody."

Johnston said on "The Rachel Maddow Show" that "It's entirely possible that Donald sent this to me. It's a possibility, and it could have been leaked by someone in his direction."

In a recent interview on Fox News, Trump denied any knowledge of how the journalists obtained his tax returns.

"I have no idea where they got it but it's illegal and they're not supposed to have it and it's not supposed to be leaked, and it's certainly not an embarrassing tax return at all, but it's an illegal thing they've been doing it, they've done it before and I think it's a disgrace," he said.
