We’re pretty sure there’s a good reason why Donald Trump is moving heaven and earth to hide his tax returns, even though it was a key campaign promise to release them. A group of hackers who successfully broke into the networks of a celebrity law firm — Grubman, Shire, Meiselas, and Sacks — claim that they’ve obtained “dirty laundry” on Donald Trump and are threatening to release it unless the law firm they stole it from hands over $42 million, according to the New York Post.
The hacking group, REvil, is giving the president one week to pay up or they will reveal what they call“dirty laundry” on Donald Trump.
“The ransom is now $42,000,000… The next person we’ll be publishing is Donald Trump,” the hackers said in a message. “There’s an election going on, and we found a ton of dirty laundry.”
REvil launched a successful attack against the firm and took 756GB of data from the firm’s servers. Still, attorney Allen Grubman said they will not negotiate with the hackers.

The group left an ominous message for our president who is now being blackmailed.
“Mr. Trump, if you want to stay president, poke a sharp stick at the guys, otherwise you may forget this ambition forever,” the group wrote. “And to you voters, we can let you know that after such a publication, you certainly don’t want to see him as president … The deadline is one week.”
“Grubman, we will destroy your company down to the ground if we don’t see the money,” hackers added.
Gruman represents celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, Mariah Carey, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Priyanka Chopra, and Bette Midler. To prove their credibility in hacking, they posted screen captures targeting Madonna.

The firm isn’t pleased with the hackers.
“The leaking of our clients’ documents is a despicable and illegal attack by these foreign cyberterrorists who make their living attempting to extort high-profile U.S. companies, government entities, entertainers, politicians, and others,” they said.
But what about Trump, the president who said he “loves WikiLeaks”? It’s a shame this group doesn’t consist of white hat hackers who could save our
country world from being destroyed by the worst president ever to be elected in history.
