Warren Earned $2M as Consultant for Corporations, Financial Firms

Elizabeth Warren was paid almost $2 million for legal work stretching back three decades, her campaign disclosed Sunday night, amid calls from a top Democratic presidential rival that the MA senator should be more forthcoming about what she earned from past corporate clients.

Warren had previously released the names of the clients and cases she took on during her tenure as a law professor at Harvard, as well as 11 years of tax returns, dating back to 2008. Now, Warren's website has been updated to reflect the compensation she received from dozens of legal clients, for cases dated between 1985 and 2009, that she had already disclosed in May.

Warren, 70, is still among the leaders in opinion polls in Iowa, which kicks off the Democratic nominating contests on February 3, and in other early voting states.

But recently, Buttigieg called on her to go back further - and release more information.

The disclosure undercuts one of the Buttigieg campaign's main counterattacks on Warren at a time when tensions between the two campaigns are increasing after Buttigieg spent months slamming Warren's health care plan. Warren has sworn off exclusive fund-raisers.

The report comes after Warren told Bloomberg News Sunday said she made about $1.9 million working as a bankruptcy lawyer, a disclosure that comes after weeks of requests from the media and Democratic rivals for her to release her tax returns.

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, has said in recent days that Warren, a USA senator from MA, should release older tax documents detailing her corporate legal work.

Fighting Wall Street greed has been a major theme of Warren's populist campaign.

She's demanded, in her turn, that Buttigieg share more details about his own past work at consulting giant McKinsey.

That may have opened her up to criticism that she herself has profited from the corporate world. In some cases, she worked with a group of consultants. She earned $18,708.50 aiding the interests of LTV Steel, which wanted to limit its payments into a fund for miners' health benefits. But many companies, like Travelers, would only agree to them if they received protection from future lawsuits.

Among the clients for whom Warren consulted were the attorneys for Rabobank, a Dutch financial institution that became a creditor in the Enron bankruptcy; former directors of Getty Oil, who were involved in Texaco's bankruptcy; and women whose allegations of harm from silicone breast implants produced by Dow Corning were imperiled when the company filed for bankruptcy.
