3:00 am
sunday morning is waiting for you. 6 dlk. too early for my, clearingly. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. good to be with you this morning. overnight an early october surprise. trump's taxes revealed. the new york timings saying they got their hands on some of donald trump's decades old tax reports. >> donald trump declared a nearly $1 billion loss back in 1995. this suggests he may have legally avoided paying federal income taxes for up to 18 years. >> so clearly plenty of questions this morning, but with fewer than 40 days until the
3:01 am
election, does this really change the race? we're digging into all of it. first, here's what's inside that "new york times" report. >> reporter: "the new york times" report indicates donald trump in 1995 reported a $916 million loss and lists tax benefits he used after a turbulent financial period for his businesses in the early 1990s. the paper signing tax experts said trump could have used his report to cancel out taxes for two decades. they obtained the documents when they were mailed to a reporter. the documents were mailed from new york city and the return address claimed the envelope had been sent from trump tower. the paper did not examine trump's federal return. the times said it obtained one page of his new york state resident income tax return as well as the first page of new jersey and connecticut nonresident returns. cnn has not independently verified the document's authenticity. the trump campaign said the gop
3:02 am
nominee has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in other taxes including property and real estate taxes. quote, the only news here is that the more than 20-year-old alleged tax document was illegally obtained, a further demonstration that the "new york times" like establishment media in general is an extension of the clinton campaign, the democratic party and the global special interest, the statement said. >> i'm going to cut taxes. >> "the new york times" report comes less than a week after trump appeared to indicate during a debate with hillary clinton that he had not paid federal income tax. the democratic nominee accused him of refusing to release his returns because of the little amount of taxes he paid. >> the only years anybody has seen were a couple of years he had to turn them over when he was trying to get a casino license and they showed he didn't pay any federal income
3:03 am
tax. >> that makes me smart. >> if they say i didn't, i mean, it doesn't matter. i will say this, i hate the way our government spends our taxes. >> all right. joining us now on the phone, suzanne craig, the reporter who received the tax returns in the mail. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> have you first, determined, the source of these documents in the period since publishing this article? >> we can't say, but we did manage to verify the -- verify them through mr. trump's former accountant. >> i'd like to get to jack mitnick who you lean on in this reporting. >> yes. >> first, explain to us the provision and it's early in the morning. so as plainly as possible this net operating loss that would allow donald trump to claim a
3:04 am
loss of 916 million and then not pay federal taxes for the next 18 years. >> yeah. it's pretty crazy. there's a provision in the tax code, when you fill out your taxes if you have business deductions, you can list them and over time if you rack up losses on the net operating losses you can continue to move them forward to reduce your taxes -- essentially reducing your taxes in future years and also back three. it allows you to reduce your taxable income to zero which means you don't have taxes to pay in those years and you can move it forward. he can move it forward 15 years and in addition he could have racked up additional net operating losses that he could have rolled forward in the future years. so we know from 1995 15 years he potentially didn't pay taxes but it could be further. >> let's now talk about jack
3:05 am
mitnik, 80 years old now. donald trump's former accountant. trump refers to him in the art of the deal. he explains trump's understanding as the critical role taxes would play in helping him, trump, build wealth. what did you learn from mr. mitnick? >> just incredibly the idea that donald trump in the early 1990s, late 80s, when these losses were probably at their largest, businesses were going under. his businesses were failing. creditors were being left with pennies on the dollars. those losses are what enabled him to not pay taxes going forward. >> these are three pages. the first page of the new york residence filing, the new jersey and connecticut nonresident filings. there are still some questions
3:06 am
unanswered though. >> there are. we have three pages which gives us a lot of information, but we don't have the schedules that went with that to itemize the losses, we don't have a full view of his charitable contributions and we know he checked off boxes saying he didn't want to give to a number of charities but we don't know exactly what that number is. so there's a lot -- we have a lot of pieces and then there's pieces obviously missing when you only get three pages. they were three crucial pages but they weren't all of it. >> we understand that donald trump would not comment on what you're reporting here, but there has been a response from a campaign and from an attorney that there could be a litigious response. >> they threatened to sue the paper that the tax records are
3:07 am
confidential. >> sue craig with the "new york times." sue, thanks so much for the reporting and for speaking with us at this really early hour. thanks so much. >> thanks. >> christi? >> i know that a lot of people, you're sitting there, watching it, how could trump have legally avoided paying taxes for 18 years? cnn money correspond department kristichristine aleschi is tryi explain this. what stood out to you? >> what stood out to me is there are still some key details that are missing because the times, as you just heard sue craig say, doesn't have trump's complete tax returns and cnn can't confirm the authenticity of the document that the paper does have. that said, here is what the times is recording. trump declared a loss of $916 million in 1995, and that loss could be used to cancel taxable income for potentially up to 18 years according to the tax experts the paper hired.
3:08 am
that means even if trump made $916 million the years after '95, he could have potentially paid little or no tax on that income. how is this possible? it all comes down to something called net operating loss. this is according to the times. when a business has more tax deductible expenses than income, you end up with what the i.r.s. calls a net operating loss. now people may be asking, if trump can write off such a large loss -- >> right. >> -- over so many years, why can't i do that? now most people are familiar with a different kind of tax deduction, capital losses. typically these are tied to stocks, bonds, other investments. these are different. they go by different rules and there are laws in how you can use them. with trump, we're talking about losses from an operating business, which according to the i.r.s. is the most common reason for a net operating loss. now if trump had most of his
3:09 am
wealth tied up in these businesses, which it seems like he did, any losses on those businesses might flow directly to him so he could use them to reduce his tax bill in future years. now as you guys have been saying all morning, it's important to note that the tax code does allow you to do this. all of this seems to be above board. the trump campaign resmoponded that the candidate did pay hundreds of millions of dollars in other taxes property, real estate. but it isn't directly denying the times reporting on the federal tax bill. >> sue just alluded to carrying money over or losses over. does this give us any clarity as to whether he lost all of this money specifically in 1995? >> that's where we get into things we don't know. the answer is, no. almost $1 billion is a lot of money to lose, and we don't know exactly when that happened.
3:10 am
we do know that one of his businesses, the taj mahal, declared bankruptcy in 1991, another in 1992. operating losses from those could have been listed on the returns in those years and they could have been carried over to the 1995 return, the year that we're looking at. we don't even know actually if the losses -- if he actually used them to offset income in later years. tax law says he could have done that, but without the returns from those later years, we can't really know for sure, christi. >> yeah, these were only three pages from, as we said, new york, new jersey, connecticut. do the documents help us get any kind of grasp as to donald trump's worth? >> that's an excellent question. bigger picture. the newly published documents don't give us the detail we want, especially me, on his overall net worth. we don't know how much money he's made since then. trump pegs his own net worth as
3:11 am
10 billion but independent analysts especially forbes say 3.7, bloomberg puts it at 3 billion. tax returns don't tell you how much someone is worth. they do tell you how much they made in any given year. all we have right now is 1995. >> thank you so much, christine aleschi. it's a lot to pick through. we appreciate you're on it. there's a good chance you're up at this hour you did not see "saturday night live" raising the curtain on its 49th season. alec baldwin is donald trump taking on kate mckinnon. >> he's the man to blame for the bottom half of all of his kids' faces, it's republican nominee, donald trump.

"saturday night live" is back, people. boy, did they jump right into election mode. i mean, let's face it, they're so good at it, why shouldn't they, right? hillary clinton, donald trump, both targets neither one off the hook. it was pretty good timing speaking about donald trump's taxes. >> i should say a pretty good lester holt. alec baldwin.
3:16 am
let's bring in cnn's jessica snyder. the season opened with this sketch, a spoof some would call it about the first presidential debate. i watched it on my phone very early this morning. laughed till i shed a few tears. tell us about it. >> reporter: yeah, a really great episode. it was much anticipated and very behind. in fact, the show waited until after the first debate to actually begin its season so they could take full advantage of all that debate fodder that we saw just about a week ago. of course, the man of the hour was alec baldwin. there was a lot of anticipation for him. once he put on that toupe and put on that pout as well. it was kate mckinnon who we've seen countless time as hillary clinton and she actually parodied hillary clinton's much relentless debate prep and hyped debate prep. take a listen to this. >> my opponent's tax plan benefits the top 1% so much, it's not just trickle down
3:17 am
economics, it's -- i don't know, i guess if i had to call it something off the top of the old dome with no prep whatsoever, i don't know, i guess i'd call it trumped up trickle down economics. >> so a play on some of those hyped words from the actual debate. now we've seen kate mckinnon countless times, so really the heat was on alec baldwin. when it was announced last week that he'd be portraying donald trump, there were a lot of questions as to whether or not he'd live up to the hype. of course, darrell hammond is somebody we've seen playing trump in the past. from what i've seen on social media, alec baldwin definitely lived up to the expectations. people loved his impressions. they loved his look. they loved his pout. they loved his talk. so a lot of praise for alec baldwin in that role. you know, interestingly as well, it wasn't just that debate that we saw parodied, we also saw a lot of political figures
3:18 am
parodied. they actually did a family feud where we saw everybody from the trump kids to bill clinton as well. the opening sketch is what we wait for. >> jessica snyder for us. jessica, we'll see a little bit more later in the show. thanks so much. all righty. gaining strength, extremely dangerous. hurricane matthew getting ready to pack a serious punch to haiti, to jamaica. cnn meteorologist allison chinchar here with it. how has it changed? >> the track has begun to shift. we see that northerly trend that the storm actually finally began to make, and that's a good thing because it finally gives us maybe a little bit more clarity on where it's going to go in the next 48 hours. we'll have more details on that coming up.

hurricane matthew is not letting up. still a powerful category 4 storm packing 150 miles per hour winds. haiti now bracing for the worst of it. jamaica is also at serious risk. shelters have opened. as you can see here, people are stocking up on water, batteries, just trying to prepare. >> cuba is in matthew's path as well. raul castro preparing as well. u.s. getting people out. we know cuba is in its sites.
3:23 am
a lot of people watching wondering if it's tracking florida. >> that's right. we talked about once it made the shift to the north we would finally be able to know a little bit more about the track. one thing we want to know is that florida was not taken out. it's still an option at this point. notice the track of the storm, still technically includes miami and that very eastern edge of florida. again, it's on the fringe, but you can't rule it out. so that's going to be the thing to realize going forward. here's a look again at the track. a very powerful category 4 hurricane. it timely made that shift to the north. we're finally starting to see a lot of the dynamics of the storm take place and get more finite detail. one thing to point out, the cloud tops in the storm exceed 60,000 feet. that's so high, again, if you had a plane going through that area, they wouldn't go through. their only option would be to go around. that's how tall some of these cloud tops are. and also just to show the expanse of the storm, tropical
3:24 am
storm force winds extend 200 miles out from the center of the storm. so even say jamaica, portions of cuba that may not necessarily get a direct hit, they're still going to have big impacts because of those outer bands in the storm. here's a look at what we call the spaghetti plot. these are all the various different options that the models think matthew has in order for where it's going. notice again you've got some going to cuba, you have some going to florida, you have some going all the way east as far as say the turks and caicos. it goes to show you there's a lot of options with this particular storm and, again, while florida play not be the best case scenario for a lot of these, it's still a scenario at this point. so we still need to keep a close eye on the storm and also watch the intensity. a lot of the impacts that cuba, haiti, jamaica will get are a lot of the things people in southern florida are going to pay close attention to. victor, christi. >> thank you, allison.
3:25 am
thank you. >> thank you so much. breaking news now. we're going to push forward on this.

glad forceflex. extra strong to avoid rips and tears. be happy, it's glad. 30 minutes past an early 6:00 a.m. on a sunday. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. let's get back to the breaking news this morning. trump's taxes revealed overnight. "the new york times" says they've obtained some of donald trump's state tax documents from 1995. the times said when they were anonymously mailed to a reporter, the return address claimed the envelope was sent from trump tower. >> the documents show trump declaring a loss of $916 million. if that's true, that kind of
3:30 am
loss could have legally exempted him from paying federal taxes for up to 18 years. cnn cannot independently confirm the authenticity of these documents, but based on what they show, they do show, i want to reiterate, that everything was done within the legal parameters of the tax code. hillary clinton is calling it a bombshell. the campaign says in a statement here, there it is. this bombshell report reveals the colossal nature of donald trump's past business failures and just how long he may have avoided paying any federal income taxes whatsoever, unquote. the clinton campaign does go on to say, now that the gig is up, why doesn't he go ahead and release his returns to show us all how smart he really is. now trump's campaign is pushing back saying he has a fiduciary responsibility as a businessman to pay no more tax than legally required. jeremy diamond has been following the campaign's response very closely. jeremy, help us understand how
3:31 am
the trump campaign is going to spin this. >> well, the trump campaign is really pushing back very severe severely, both slamming "the new york times" report and essentially pushing back against these suggestions that not paying tax returns that year sheds any light on trump's character or his qualities as a businessman, particularly pertaining to this $916 million loss. the trump campaign put out a statement last night. the only news here is that the more than 20-year-old alleged tax document was illegally obtained. a further demonstration that the "new york times," like established media in general, is an extension of the clinton campaign, the democratic party and their global special interests. what is happening now with the fbi and d.o.j. on hillary clinton's e-mail and illegal server including her many lies and lies to congress are worse than what took place in the administration of richard nixon and far more illegal. there you see the trump campaign slamming this "new york times" report and deflecting, trying to
3:32 am
change this conversation and put it back to hillary clinton and her use of a private e-mail server. what will be the focus is going to be this tax return revelation. it amps up pressure on donald trump to release his tax returns and certainly continues to raise questions about whether he paid any income tax at all in recent years given that this report in 1995 shows that trump may not have had to pay any income tax for 18 years. >> yeah, and that he may not have had to do that because of the legal parameters, again, of the current tax code. there was a poll last month that said 62% of people polled say that it is important for a presidential candidate to release their tax codes. what are you hearing about any possibility that he may actually do that and how if he does not it may hurt him? >> well, donald trump has been defiant on this issue, right?
3:33 am
remember, this is a precedent set by major party nominees for decades, and donald trump so far has said as long as my tax returns are under audit, i'm not going to release them, which is to say he's not going to release them before election day given that his tax returns going back to 2009 are under audit according to a letter from his attorney. but certainly this is going to be difficult for trump because it also undermines, you know, this idea that he is a business -- an amazing businessman and that he's going to help the country given the fact that, you know, this showed a $960 million loss. that may bring some concern for voters who see that as a key attribute. but donald trump could also spin this in another way. it could be an opportunity for him to talk about those years in the '90s when he struggled financially, a humbling opportunity to talk about that and how he made a comeback from those difficult years. >> okay. jeremy diamond, appreciate it so much. thank you. let's talk more about what this "new york times" report means for trump's campaign with
3:34 am
scotty hughes, cnn reporter and the president of the national education association and supporter of hillary clinton. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> i want to bring back up that fox news poll because i think it's important. i don't want to just brush by it if we can start there. the question here is donald trump hiding something in his tax returns taken just a few weeks ago? 60% of the respondents believe that he is. scotty, to you first i learned that the truth is better than perception, someone will tell you. the statement from the trump campaign does not deny or refute a single word of the times report. should they now release the tax returns? >> absolutely not. this is the latest dumpster diving story of "the new york times" and of course the hillary clinton camp wants donald trump to release his taxes. we've seen the paperwork, how large it is. that would give them a whole month to sit there and go through every detail, every paper. i'm sure when we're creating headlines and stories this
3:35 am
morning that use the words could have, may have, not verified and making those the headlines, i can just imagine all of the great spin that the hillary clinton camp could try to come up with when it's not factually based. the only illegal thing that's happened here is how "the new york times" may have received these tax documents and how they released them. >> "the new york times" said they were mailed to them anonymously. three more words i want to add to that list, scotty. this is legit coming from jack nicks son, the -- i'm sorry, mitnik who was the accountant for donald trump during this time. let me come to you, lily. i want to play something that donald trump said to cbs just a couple weeks ago. >> i fight like hell to pay as little as possible for two reasons. number one, i'm a businessman and that's the way you're supposed to do it and you put the money back into your company and employees and all of that, but the other reason is that i hate the way our government
3:36 am
spends our taxes. i hate the way they waste our money, trillions and trillions of dollars of waste and abuse and i hate it. >> all right. so he says i fight like hell to pay as little as possible. doesn't everyone? i mean, if there are people sitting at home, they want to pay as little in federal taxes too, right? >> exactly. i'm a teacher so when you think that teachers out there pay more taxes than donald trump you know there's something going on here. and everybody wants to see the taxes -- taxes of the people who want to be our next president. it gives us a lot of good information that the public has been able to know about people who are running for president for the last 40 years with the one single exception of donald trump. and now we know why. because he has stiffed the american public as much as he's
3:37 am
stiffed the people that worked for him and didn't get paid what they were supposed to be paid. talking about fair share. >> when you say he stiffs them, let me tell you, i want to make sure we say this, that he has broken no laws. >> no, exactly. >> right. >> according to the "new york times" he has followed every law. let me come to you, scotty. i'll come right back to you, lily. let me bring to you what donald trump jr. said in an interview just a couple of weeks ago with the "pittsburgh tribune review." the narrative from the trump campaign, from donald trump, there is an audit and that is the only reason why he's not releasing his returns. here's what donald trump jr. said. >> because he's got a 12,000 page tax return and that would create -- that would create probably 300 million independent financial auditors out of every person in the country asking questions that are going to distract from his main message. >> by that rationale you don't think it will ever be released? >> 12,000 -- >> i think probably not during the election. whatever the rules would be once
3:38 am
you're a president, i don't think it's an issue. we don't want to take away from our message. >> doesn't want to take away from the message. doesn't think they're going to be released before the election. no mention of an audit. is that the real reason we're not seeing those documents released echoing what you said just a couple of minutes ago. don't the american people deserve to see those documents as they have for the last 40 years. >> if you don't like the law, victor, change it. right now mr. trump has done everything. we have laws in this country for a reason. if you don't like it, change it. you have to look at, mr. trump was not the only one hurting that year, 71,800 businesses failed. 20 years ago. mr. trump, your private or previous reporters talked about airlines and other companies that mr. trump of the 515 companies, 32,000 jobs he has created. we're going to go after this and we're going to go after these maybe possible cases of taxes and discredit everything he's
3:39 am
done, good in business and good for our economy. >> scotty, i'll add to that no one else in that year is running for president in 2016. >> he wasn't running at that point either. >> he's running now. >> he wasn't running then. >> i hear you. >> no one would have asked him in 1995 to release his taxes. they're asking in 2016 because he's on the ballot this year. lily, let me come back to you. how much is this really worth? polls show that voters care about jobs, the economy, terrorism not donald trump's effective tax rate. that's not what they're going to go to the ballot and make a choice. >> but they do care about his character. they do care about whether or not he's someone who would continue the kinds of laws that allow the super rich to get away without paying taxes while people like teachers and soldiers and folks who work for a paycheck have to pay their fair share of taxes. think about what those taxes pay
3:40 am
for. they pay for our public schools, public roads. when someone says i'm too smart to pay taxes, what does that make the rest of us, that we're not smart because we do pay our fair share? >> lily, scotty, just the beginning of the conversation this morning of this breaking news from "the new york times" that $916 million loss taken in 1995 by donald trump. we'll continue the conversation. thank you both. a couple of programming notes. bernie sanders will join jay tapper on "state of the union." gary johnson will join "newsroom" with fredricka whitfield only here on cnn. right now you may feel it's been a tough election year. hostility from both presidential candidates.
