Warren Brings Document to Urge Bloomberg to Release Former Employees From NDAs


After scorching former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Wednesday night at the Democratic debate in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) continued to try and dismantle his campaign on Thursday.

Warren kicked off the CNN Town Hall meeting with another challenge for the billionaire businessman. With a document in hand, Warren opened with a discussion about one of the most important items on her priority list: Bloomberg’s non-disclosure agreement (NDA) controversy.

According to Warren, if there’s nothing to hide, Bloomberg should have no problem releasing some former female employees from their NDAs. To expedite the process, Warren went a step further by drawing up a document of her own.

“So, I’ve brought something with me today,” she said, holding a document. Warren went on to recall her heated exchange with Bloomberg during the debate.

As previously reported on IJR, Warren scorched Bloomberg for his brash remarks and alleged mistreatment of women. At the Town Hall meeting, she alluded to the previous night while offering an explanation for her penned document.

“This is an election for president of the United States, and transparency here is important. So, I used to teach contract law, and I thought I would make this easy,” Warren said as the crowd applauded. “I wrote up a release and covenant not to sue, and all that Mayor Bloomberg has to do is download it — I’ll text it — sign it, and then the women, or men, will be free to speak and tell their own stories.”

Her campaign also echoed similar sentiments with a tweet challenging Bloomberg to release his former employees from the NDAs.

In response to Warren’s comments, Bloomberg insisted his company has “very few nondisclosure agreements.” However, he offered no further details. Warren believes that Bloomberg should be eliminated from the race if he refuses to lift the gag orders. 

“If he’s not willing to remove those gags and let those women — and maybe those men — talk, then he is disqualified from being president of the United States,” Warren said Thursday.

Despite her concerns about Bloomberg’s business practices, Warren admitted that she would support any Democratic presidential nominee if it means defeating President Donald Trump in the November general election.
