Sanders said lawmakers are not "smart enough" to look through President Trump's tax returns.

"This is a dangerous, dangerous road, and frankly, Chris, I don't think Congress, particularly not this group of congressmen and women, are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages that I would assume that president trumps taxes will be," Sanders said to host Chris Wallace.

"My guess is most of them don't do their own taxes and I certainly don't trust them to look through the decades of success that the president has and determine anything," Sanders added. "He has filled out hundreds of pages in a financial disclosure form and I think it is a disgusting overreach that they are making when they're not doing this based on policy. And it puts every American who has filled out tax forms in the past -- it puts them all at jeopardy. If they can single one, they can single out everybody."
