Socialist Bernie Sanders' tax returns show millionaire status

Bernie Sanders speaking to a crowd at James Madison Park on the shores of Lake Mendota in Madison Wisconsin. Friday April 12

In a letter provided to CNN by his campaign, Sanders addressed the board of the Center for American Progress and CAP Action Fund on Saturday, alleging that its activities are playing a "destructive role" in the "critical mission to defeat Donald Trump".

U.S. Senators Cory Booker, of New Jersey, and Kirsten Gillibrand, of NY, each raised about 16 percent of their cash from small-dollar donors.

The effective rates and income both represent substantial increases from 2014, which was the previous year of tax returns publicly released by the candidate, when he earned $205,617 and paid a 13.4% effective rate. Sanders can now realistically cast himself as the frontrunner, and despite all his success in 2016 and his fundraising and volunteer success this year-and though some of us have always believed he was the favorite in this primary-he's never truly been able to say that before.

"I consider paying more in taxes as my income rose to be both an obligation and an investment in our country", he added.

In a tweet of his own, Baier shot back, saying the president was welcome to come on for an interview of his own. But he maintains that his wealth has not changed his stance that richer Americans should shoulder more of the tax burden.

"This year, we had $560,000 in income", Sanders admitted.

Here's a closer review of his 2014 tax return so you can compare it to his more recent tax returns.

Trump has not released any of his tax returns, despite fervent calls from Democrats and American voters for him to do so.

In 2018, they reported an income of $566,421. "If anyone thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I'm sorry, I'm not gonna do it".

Sanders robustly defended his wealth, as he has before - which some people have said is hypocritical.

During the 2016 election, Brazile was widely criticized after emails surfaced proving she shared questions with the Hillary Clinton campaign ahead of a CNN-hosted town hall hosted with opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in a town hall on Fox News, and even appeared to push a conspiracy theory about it. It included clips of Sanders criticising the influence of "millionaires and billionaires" alongside a chart showing how he became a millionaire through his books sales. Sanders said he was subject to a "smear" by the group, which was founded by John Podesta, who chaired Clinton's 2016 campaign. She said the video would remain online.

Other 2018 income included wages from his job as Senator and $51,000 in Social Security earnings, according to his filing.

Several in the growing field of Democratic 2020 contenders, including Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, and Governor Jay Inslee of Washington, have released their 2018 returns in recent weeks. Hey, President Trump, my wife and I just released 10 years.
