The executive editor of The New York Times is willing to go awfully far to publish Donald Trump's tax returns, including risking prison time.

According to CNN, Dean Baquet told the audience during a panel at Harvard University on Sunday that he would take the risk and work with his paper's legal team to make Trump's IRS records public if he were to acquire them.

Bob Woodward, an associate editor at The Washington Times, was on the panel as well and agreed with Baquet.

Filmmaker Laura Poitras, known for the documentary she made about Edward Snowden, asked the pair about publishing the tax returns and said doing so without Trump's permission would potentially come with going to prison.

"Some things you have to do," Woodward said, reports CNN. "Dean is exactly right. This defines Donald Trump."

Critics have been urging Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, for months to release his financial records. He has yet to do so, citing an ongoing audit.

Democrat Hillary Clinton released her tax return information in August. 

Trump joked last week that he would release his returns when Clinton makes public the 33,000 emails that were deleted from her private email server.
