Bernie Sanders Releases 10 Years of Tax Returns

Bernie Sanders’ campaign escalates feud with top liberal think tank

Some progressives criticized Sanders for appearing on Fox News, which the candidate himself has described as "right-wing propaganda" meant to benefit Trump. "I guess the president watches your network a little bit, right?"

The audience numbers for these events have ranged from a low of 314,000 for an appearance by author Marianne Williamson on Sunday, to a high of 1.9 million for a town hall featuring Sen.

While Sanders has filed congressional disclosures for 30 years, Monday's release represents the most in-depth financial disclosure to date by Sanders, who can be prickly about his personal life and finances.

There is no requirement that presidential candidates release their tax returns, but many have done so by tradition.

But the question had become more pressing for Sanders, who only released one year of returns during his 2016 campaign, as he moved into a strong early position in polls and fundraising among Democrats seeking the 2020 nomination to challenge Trump.

The senator, who routinely rails against "millionaires and billionaires" and the "rigged" economic system that protects their standing, saw his income spike on royalties from sales of his book, Our Revolution, published shortly after his 2016 race for the Democratic nomination.

The returns, released Monday, show an adjusted gross income for Sanders and his wife Jane of $561,293 in 2018. "It was a bestseller, sold all over the world, and we made money".

"And by the way, why don't you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes", Sanders said angrily.

The returns show that the couple earned almost $2.8 million in the three years since Sanders' first presidential campaign catapulted him to national political prominence.

The CAP was founded by John Podesta, who later chaired Hillary Clinton's 2016 election campaign. "Jane, is there any way we can pay an alternative maximum tax?" "In my and my wife's case, I wrote a pretty good book".

The backdrop for the town hall was an abandoned steel plant in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the heart of a 2020 battleground region.

In 2016, a major attraction for his strong cohort of young voters was his promise of free tuition at all public colleges and universities, paid for with a new tax on Wall Street trades. You can read the full tax returns in the story below.

"I wrote a best-selling book, "he told the paper".

"I regularly field calls from people angry with CAP over something Think Progress was written or posted", the official said.
