Linkedin Founder Reid Hoffman Pledges $5M To Veterans Groups If Trump Releases His Tax Returns

The Hill reports:

The co-founder of LinkedIn said on Monday that he will give up to $5 million to veterans groups as part of a crowdfunding campaign if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump releases his tax returns.

Reid Hoffman has pledged multiply whatever is raised in the effort, which is being run by an ex-Marine named Pete Kiernan, by five. Hoffman, who is worth more than $3 billion, has said he will match the amount raised up to $5 million.

The effort promises to give the money raised to veterans groups if the presidential candidate makes the document public by the third debate in mid-October.

“The ingenuity of Kiernan’s proposal is how it gives Trump a strong incentive to act but doesn’t reward him directly for something he should have already done,” said Hoffman in a Medium post announcing his pledge. “Instead, men and women to whom all Americans owe a great debt of gratitude will benefit from any positive action he takes.”
