Bernie Sanders' tax returns reveal he's a millionaire

Bernard Sanders, a democratic socialist who has spent much of his political career railing against "millionaires and billionaires" and America's "1 percent", is making no apologies for his new millionaire status.

Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, and Elizabeth Warren have all disclosed their earnings, as has Washington Governor Jay Inslee.

The lawmaker also owns three homes; he bought one of them in 2016 for $575,000.
