(Newser) – Amid Kellyanne Conway's busy morning of sparring with Chuck Todd over "alternative facts," came this new tidbit about President Trump's much-discussed tax returns: "The White House response is that he’s not going to release his tax returns," she told ABC News' This Week, per Politico. "We litigated this all through the election. People didn’t care," Conway continued. "They voted for him, and let me make this very clear: Most Americans ... are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office, not what his look like." A petition demanding the release of the president's tax returns has passed the 100,000 signatures necessary for his review, Politico notes.

Meanwhile, Conway's statement immediately attracted the ire of WikiLeaks, which tweeted that "Trump's breach of promise over the release of his tax returns is even more gratuitous than Clinton concealing her Goldman Sachs transcripts." Julian Assange's brainchild went further, reports Politico, urging anyone in possession of them to "Send them to: https://wikileaks.org/#submit so we can" release them.
