We have heard a lot from Democrats about Donald Trump’s tax returns, but the frontrunner (of those who have announced) in their party’s presidential nomination race won’t release his returns.
Bernie Sanders said nearly 40 days ago he would realize his taxes “soon.” Asked by @tedbarrettcnn for an update today, Sanders was evasive and his aides stepped in front of him and tried to prevent Sanders from being questioned further https://t.co/Dp6gy5r1RK

But transparency and everything!
It has been 38 days since Bernie Sanders announced he was releasing 10 years of tax returns and didn’t release anything, again.

Last week, he challenged President Trump to release his returns and promised that he was going to publish his own soon.
"Sooner than later" is what Sanders told Wolf Blitzer at a town hall in February. “They will be released soon,” he said yesterday. https://t.co/pOyA4bufA6

He’s been promising the returns for a while.
Bernie Sanders on releasing his taxes (Feb 25): "We have to just do a few more little things, but — check them out. But they're ready.”
Bernie Sanders on releasing his taxes (March 31): “We have it all done and it's just a question of dotting the i's and crossing the t’s."

David Axelrod cannot seem to understand this.
This is very hard to understand. https://t.co/kWA505k0G7

You see, David, money is bad.
Not really. It’s easy to rail & rant about wealth and inequality while you keep the impression up that you’re just the old neighborhood curmudgeon and not a millionaire with 3 houses. https://t.co/GoD0US9LjN

Probably has something to do with the fact that Bernies finances don't line up with his socialist views. https://t.co/b6y2Ag0O4V

If his tax returns are released and the full extent of his wealth becomes known to the Feel the Bern crowd, they might want to start the redistribution with his checkbook.
That socialism stuff is a great speech but a terrible reality, right Bernie?
Whoops! Bernie Sanders slams ‘failed current system’ in Medicare for All push, KO’s Obama, Dems AND himself in the process https://t.co/eyWreZUgie
