Bernie Sanders releases 10 years of long-awaited tax returns

Illinois Senate to Trump: No tax return, no spot on ballot

Less than half an hour after Steyer's tweet, Tanden responded in a Monday press release distancing both CAP and herself from ThinkProgress's anti-Sanders content.

After Sanders put out the past decade of his taxes, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke did the same on Monday evening, though without his 2018 return which he hadn't filed yet but said he would make public as soon as he filed. The couple reported donating $18,950 to charity. Since his first bid, Sanders and his wife - from 2016-2018 - made a total of more than $2.79m. Trump has continued to ignore calls to release his returns, and House Democrats are now trying to use their majority power to obtain the documents from the Internal Revenue Service. His 2018 filing was not yet available.

Sanders had refused to release his tax returns throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, and had taken heavy incoming fire from allies of his Democratic rivals this year for not putting out his returns.

Asked by DailyMail.com on Saturday at a campaign stop in Gary, Indiana, if his millionaire status "conflicts" with the message he's pushing, Sanders, who's seeking the presidency again, replied, 'I don't think so.

In a tweet on Sunday, ThinkProgress editor-in-chief Jodi Enda defended the site as "editorially independent journalistic entity" and said "neither CAP or CAP Action had anything to do with the article or video related to Senator Sanders or articles related to any other political leader". He was paid and additional $391,000 for his books, including the bestselling "Where We Go From Here", published with Macmillan. I think the middle class continues to struggle, and I think what you're seeing here in Gary is not unreflective of what's going on in many, many other parts of our community, ' he contended in IN on Saturday.

Sanders stressed that his wealth is a new development in an accompanying statement.

"I guess the president watches your network a little bit", Sanders said, turning to the camera. Years ago my wife was a president of a college. "Let the American people know". On air, Sanders said he recognized that a Democrat presidential candidate would not win in 2020 merely by complaining about Trump.

It's more or less the expected move from the former vice-president, invoking the name of a highly popular centrist in a time when policy proposals from 2020 contenders like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are pushing the party to the left. It's an important meeting not just to discuss the horrific impact on this small town and this community, about GM preferring to give billions of dollars in stock buybacks to make the very rich even richer, while they chose to close down this plant and other plants around the country.

He spoke at length about the closure of the Lordstown GM plant, and other auto plants around the country and was critical of GM and Wall Street's business choices since being given government bailouts. He declined to do so, disclosing only his tax return for 2014. It means ending inequalities that exist today.
