2020 candidate Bernie Sanders releases 10 years of tax returns

Bernie Sanders (I-VT) participates in a FOX News Town Hall at SteelStacks on April 15, 2019 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Fox News Channel boasted another stellar night of ratings Monday.

The potential that Sanders will be the last candidate standing is "spooking establishment-aligned Democrats", the NYT concludes.

"The Bernie question comes up in every fund-raising meeting I do", Brock told the Times".

Sanders leads the crowded Democratic field in fundraising.

In an interview with the New York Times, he said his tax returns would be "more boring" because he's not a billionaire with investments in Saudi Arabia or "wherever he has investments, all over the world". The Sanders campaign promised early in his candidacy this cycle that he would release his financial records.

"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".

From canapé-filled fund-raisers on the coasts to the cloakrooms of Washington, mainstream Democrats are increasingly anxious that their effort to defeat President Trump in 2020 could be complicated by Mr. Sanders, in a political scenario all too reminiscent of how Mr. Trump himself seized the Republican nomination in 2016.

Workers at the airport stopped the man, and he was taken into custody by Phoenix Police officers without incident. He fell about 10 feet and suffered injuries described as minor.

Some other notable moments from the rather contentious event includes Sanders' response to questions about his tax returns, which showed that he and his wife made over a million dollars in both 2016 and 2017 and over a half-million in 2018, when he paid an effective tax rate of 26%. Kamala Harris of California reported an income of $1.9 million between her and her husband, who is an attorney - he is most well-known for having made his career by railing against the economic inequalities caused by America's richest, a system he criticizes for leaving the bottom 99% with less money than the top 1%.

But in a statement released with his tax returns, Sanders welcomed paying more in taxes as his income increased. As James Adomian's Sanders parody character put it in a video about him scrambling to finish his tax return: "They are not taxing me at a high enough rate". This included $24,000 the couple overpaid, and for which they did not request a refund, according to tax returns.

Nor is there any suggestion that Sanders would moderate his anti-plutocratic politics to benefit him personally.

Sanders is one among several Democratic presidential candidates who have been publicly disclosing their finances, part of an effort to contrast themselves against President Donald Trump, who broke with longstanding tradition in 2016 when he refused to release his returns. "If anyone thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I'm sorry, I'm not gonna do it". "I didn't know it was a crime to write a good book".

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.

"I didn't suggest a wealth tax", she replied.

Senator Amy Klobuchar released 12 years of tax returns, showing that she and husband earned about $292,000 in 2017. "We wanted to do 10 years and so we had (an internal) conversation saying, 'let's just do it all at once so we have the most recent one'".
