David Brock Wants to Start Anti-Sanders Campaign

These royalties were more modest, at $539.47 in 2017 and $2,520.60 in 2016.

At the same time, Sanders refused to say why he would not volunteer to pay the massive new 52-percent "wealth tax" that he himself advocated imposing on the country's richest individuals, as Fox News also pointed out.

"Bernie Sanders has been filing detailed financial disclosures for nearly 30 years, and he is proud to voluntarily make these tax returns available many months before the election, " said campaign manager Faiz Shakir.

But in a statement released with his tax returns, Sanders welcomed paying more in taxes as his income increased. Hey, President Trump, my wife and I just released 10 years.

Former Sanders surrogate Jonathan Tasini in an email called the ThinkProgress clip "despicable" and said he initially "thought it was a Republican attack video masquerading as a Democratic production".

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".

"He didn't do a whole lot, economically or tax-wise, other than earn his Senate salary, Social Security income, and book royalties, as well as paying state and local taxes and giving about US$19,000 to charity", Shaviro said. "In my and my wife's case, I wrote a pretty good book".

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. Translated to five or six languages. The documents underscore how much money the populist presidential candidate has earned in recent years, as his public profile has risen.

He promised "no great revelations".

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.

The Sanders campaign said in a press release that he paid 26 per cent effective tax rate in 2018. Harris has been filing jointly with her husband since they were married in 2014.

In a move to show they are serious about eliminating big money from politics, most Democratic presidential candidates have sworn off donations from corporate political fundraising committees. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota released 12 years of tax returns through 2017 earlier this month.

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

"There's a growing realization that Sanders could end up winning this thing, or certainly that he stays in so long that he damages the actual victor", Brock told the New York Times, adding he has spoken with other operatives about conducting an anti-Sanders campaign and thinks it should begin "sooner rather than later".

Bernie Sanders asked Rust Belt voters to embrace his most progressive ideas at a Pennsylvania town hall aired on the conservative Fox News Network as he tries to make inroads with the working-class voters who were drawn to President Donald Trump in 2016.
