Chicago Mayor Lightfoot to Buttigieg: ‘Break that NDA’ to have ‘moral authority’ against Trump

by TAL AXELROD - The Hill  |  Published on December 9, 2019

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Friday pressed White House hopeful Pete Buttigieg to break his nondisclosure agreement (NDA) with McKinsey & Company so he can have the “moral authority” against President Trump.

“Shouldn’t you break that NDA so that you have the moral authority and the high ground against somebody like Trump, who hides behind the lack of transparency to justify everything that he’s doing?” she asked Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind.

Buttigieg pointed to a statement he released earlier Friday that outlined the type of work he did during the three years he was employed by the consulting firm, though he did not disclose his specific clients.

The question from Lightfoot, asked at a forum hosted by the U.S. Conference of Mayors and Accelerator for America in Waterloo, Iowa, underscores the pressure Buttigieg is under to increase transparency over his tenure in the private sector.
