Her campaign's legal work page now includes an itemized list of legal cases dating back to the 1980s on which Warren worked, along with the corresponding sum earned for each case. Financial information for some cases remains unavailable.

"These disclosures include all of the cases Elizabeth Warren worked on that we have been able to identify and all of the income from each case we have been able to determine from public records, Elizabeth Warren’s personal records, and other sources," the campaign said.

"Elizabeth does not sell access to her time -- no closed door big dollar fundraisers, no bundling program, no perks or promises to any wealthy donor. She is one of the only candidates who has pledged to end the practice of appointing campaign donors as US ambassadors over professional diplomats, a practice highlighted by the impeachment inquiry," the spokeswoman, Kristen Orthman, added.

The Massachusetts senator worked in bankruptcy law for several decades before being elected to the Senate in 2012, and prior to that was integral in the Obama administration's efforts to set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CPFB).

The mayor himself is facing scrutiny over his past work for consulting firm McKinsey, about which he has released few details.

"Any candidate who refuses to provide basic details about his or her own record and refuses to allow voters or the press to understand who is buying access to their time and what they are getting in return will be seen by voters as part of the same business-as-usual politics that voters have consistently rejected," Warren's campaign added.

The two candidates, who have vied for top spots in early primary state polling in recent weeks, are set to meet again onstage next week at the December Democratic debate in Los Angeles.
