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

Bernie Sanders on Monday released 10 years of his long-anticipated tax returns as he campaigns for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

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.

He has spent years railing against the excesses of the wealthiest Americans, but Sen. 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.

"Center for American Progress leader Neera Tanden repeatedly calls for unity while simultaneously maligning my staff and supporters and belittling progressive ideas", Sanders wrote, adding: "I and other Democratic candidates are running campaigns based on principles and ideas and not engaging in mudslinging or personal attacks on each other".

Fox News anchor Bret Baier noted that Sanders benefited from Trump's tax bill, while Sanders pointed out that he voted against it. "I don't apologize for writing a book that was number three on the New York Times bestseller, that was translated five or six times".

Harris's 15 years of returns surpass the decade's worth of tax information from fellow Democratic presidential contenders Sens.

"I don't think it's a problem that someone has been successful in the private sector", said Sullivan, who supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary.

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. "We can not and will not muzzle ThinkProgress, an editorially independent journalistic enterprise, and we believe it's wrong for any political leader to demand it do so".

Sanders had come under increasing pressure to make the tax disclosures as his primary rivals rolled out their own returns and critics - along with some allies - began to agitate for a more complete, public look inside the candidate's pocketbook. Sanders said he was subject to a "smear" by the group, which was founded by John Podesta, who chaired Clinton's 2016 campaign. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota released 12 years of tax returns through 2017 earlier this month. Tax transparency has been in the spotlight as Donald Trump bucks decades of presidential tradition by declining to show voters his tax filings and House Democrats seek to force him to turn them over.
