Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) pledged Friday to release the trove of impeachment-related documents that the White House has barred, should she become president.

She added that Republicans should know that “this evidence won’t be hidden forever.”

Warren made the promise just days after her campaign unveiled its Department of Justice task force to investigate members of the Trump administration for possible corruption.

Her proposals are carefully timed. Democrats are frustrated as the trial unfolds and, despite Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) adept leadership of the argument, all signs point to an easy acquittal at the hands of Republican senators.

Warren may be as powerless as her Democratic peers now — but at least she can promise retroactive justice, should she win the election.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
