Progressive Civil War? -- Bernie Sanders Slams ThinkProgress In Wake Of Criticism

Democratic U.S. 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders holds an evening public rally along the waterfront in downtown San Diego, California, U.S., March 22, 2019.

In his letter, Sanders accused CAP of being under the influence of corporate PAC money to prevent progressive ideas from becoming the focus of the Democratic party.

The Sanders campaign said those rates do not reflect charitable proceeds given from one of his books, which he did not deduct from his taxes.

More numbers in Biden's favor come from a recent Morning Consult poll, which states he's the second choice of Bernie Sanders supporters, Kamala Harris supporters, and Beto O'Rourke supporters, suggesting the broad, if secondary appeal of the former vice-president.

Sanders reported an adjusted gross income of almost $561,293 and paid $145,840, a 26% effective rate, in 2018, the documents show. He made no apologies for his financial well-being, telling the New York Times recently that "if you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too".

"Thank you by the way for helping me win MI four years ago".

The CAP was founded by John Podesta, who later chaired Hillary Clinton's 2016 election campaign.

The perception of a contrast between Sanders' wealth and his rhetoric has become a campaign issue on both the left and the right. "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".

The new records show Sanders' growing income and confirmed his status as a millionaire, largely on the strength of money made from book sales. "The Democratic primary must be a campaign of ideas, not of bad faith smears".

If Rettig fails to respond, Neal says that'll be interpreted as denying the request, which could pave the way for a court battle. "ThinkProgress is editorially independent of CAP and CAP Action, which is what has made it valuable as a news outlet".

"Nobody was trying to attack him", she said. She said the video would remain online. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota released 12 years of tax returns through 2017 earlier this month. "As a strong proponent of transparency, the senator hopes President Trump and all Democratic primary candidates will disclose their tax returns".

"If you want to run for vice president or president of the United States, hey, what's wrong with providing your tax returns for the past five years?" said Sen.

Governor Jay Inslee of Washington released 12 years of tax returns, showing that he and his wife earned US$202,912 last year.
