Bernie Sanders, now a millionaire, pledges to release tax returns by Monday

Sanders' 2017 Senate financial disclosure forms indicate that he raked in some $1.06 million that year, as that outlet reported.

Sanders declared his soon-to-be released tax returns would be "boring" and didn't deny his millionaire status in an interview with the New York Times. He added, "If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire too".

Sanders has come under fire for not releasing his tax returns, a common practice for presidential candidates with the notable exception of President Donald Trump.

Pressure has mounted on Sanders again, now that congressional Democrats have pushed for the release of six years of returns by Trump.

SANDERS: If you want cosmetic surgery - under Medicare for all, we cover all basic health care need.

It's always about Trump: Sanders repeatedly mentions Pres. Trump when asked about his tax returns, attempting to create separation between the two politicians who have not released their returns. He trails only former Vice President Joe Biden, who has yet to officially decide on his candidacy.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota: 8%.

In 2014, they released returns showing $205,617 in income, including $156,441 in wages and salary and $46,213 from Social Security benefits.
