A TPM Reader notes that there may well be more to the Melania Trump working in the US illegally story. The AP found evidence that Melania worked in the US illegally prior to the date her lawyer says she first obtained a work permit. Good work by the AP. But we don’t actually know she got a work permit even then. We’re just talking her lawyer’s word for it. It’s like Trump’s taxes. No evidence, we just have to take their word. I don’t blame the AP for that, to be clear. They can’t prove she didn’t get a permit then. So they did the story exactly right. But Melania Trump have provided no evidence that wasn’t working in the country illegally for a much longer period.
