WOW! CNN Hits Bernie Sanders For Failure to RELEASE FULL TAX RETURNS (VIDEO)
Is Bernie Sanders finally getting vetted by the mainstream media? It sure looks that way. CNN’s Jake Tapper recently hit Bernie for failing to release his full tax returns.
Sanders claims his wife does their taxes. That would be the same woman who drove a Vermont college to the brink of bankruptcy.
During the 2012 election, the media repeatedly allowed Harry Reid to falsely accuse Mitt Romney of failing to pay his taxes, so this is quite a surprise.

Sanders Evades Tax Question
When asked about releasing his “full” federal tax returns, Sen. Bernie Sanders insisted that “we have released them in the past.” But Sanders has released only his 1040 form, a two-page summary of his federal returns, not his full returns.
Sanders, who is one of the least wealthy members of the Senate, was asked about releasing his tax returns on CNN’s “State of Union.” Jake Tapper, the show’s anchor, accurately stated that Sanders had released the 1040 two-page summary page of his 2014 tax returns, but not the full returns. Tapper asked Sanders if he would release the full tax returns for the past eight years, as his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton has done on her website.
Here’s the exchange:
Tapper, April 3: Before the New York primary, will you match her? Will you post your full returns for the last eight years?
Sanders: You know, we are not — you know, to be very honest with you, you know who does our tax returns? My wife does our tax returns. We have been a little bit busy lately.
So, we will get out as much information as we can. There ain’t going to be very much exciting in that. I get a salary from the United States Senate. You know, there’s not going to be anything new in it that there hasn’t — people haven’t seen for the last many years, but we will get it out as soon as we can.
Tapper: But nobody — nobody has seen them at all, I guess, is the point. And whether or not there’s anything exciting in them …
Sanders: No, that is not true. That is — that is not true. Of course, we have released them in the past.
Watch the video:
Donald Trump hasn’t released his full tax returns either but that’s because he’s being audited… You know, like thousands of other innocent conservatives who have been harassed by the IRS under Obama.
