CLIMATE? SOCIALISM? Hillary Staffers Say Bernie Demanded PRIVATE JETS Throughout 2016 Campaign

He has conservative friends who "believe what they believe, and I believe what I believe, and that's called democracy and that's a good thing", he added.

Several former Clinton staffers, also speaking to Politico, reported that Sanders' frequent requests for private planes from the campaign became "a running joke in the office" - in part because Sanders is a socialist, and also because he has pushed for the elimination of carbon-generating heavy aircraft in favor of high-speed rail networks.

Hot Air blogger John Sexton commented that Clinton's people clearly are pushing the story to damage Sanders, at least partly because they're still angry about his 2016 campaign and the fact that they lost.

Sanders, who had been the former secretary of state's leading rival, formally endorsed her on 12 July 2016 and agreed to campaign for her in the Dems' battle against Donald Trump.

Almost 40 percent of Sanders's 2020 donors "used an email address that had never before been used to give" to him, his campaign said according to the Monday story in The Times.

And in her book, the election retrospective "What Happened", Clinton slammed Sanders' ideas as unrealistic and decried him for using "innuendo and impugning my character" such that she suffered "lasting damage" into the general election. Sanders said Monday that he would have released more of his tax returns had he been the Democratic nominee.

"I think we have come a long way since then, and I fully expect to be treated quite as well as anyone else", Sanders said.

"That's why chartered flights were used: to make sure Sen".

During the auction part of the evening, one of the prizes up for bidding was a trip to London to see Rocketman . Rocketman is set for release on 24 May 2019.

It was simply impossible for Sanders to get to all of the events he was scheduled to speak at on a tight schedule - many in small communities that had limited commercial-flight options - without hiring planes, spokeswoman Arianna Jones told Politico.

Former Sanders campaign spokesman Michael Briggs slammed the Clinton team for making it an issue two years later. Amy Klobuchar raised her first million "within 48 hours" of declaring her candidacy on February 10. Previously, the biggest first-day fundraiser in the race had been California Sen.

And this week, Sanders announced he has already signed up a historic one million volunteers.

Sanders' plan to release a decade's worth of tax returns was first reported by National Journal.

Nearly three years after Bernie Sanders joined forces with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald Trump in the presidential election, one of the Vermont senator's former aides said Clinton's campaign behaved like "total ingrates" towards Sanders.

This is in addition to a row house in Washington, D.C., as well as a house in Burlington, Vermont.
