Elizabeth Warren is making an economically focused push on climate Friday as she seeks to regain momentum after briefly challenging for frontrunner status months ago.

Driving the news: The campaign is circulating a new analysis from the progressive think tank Data for Progress, which concludes her proposals would yield roughly 10.6 million jobs over 10 years.

  • Warren yesterday rolled out an endorsement from Rhiana Gunn-Wright, an activist who has become prominent over the last year as a key architect of the Green New Deal.
  • Those moves come roughly a week after Warren unveiled the oceans-focused portions of her wider climate platform.

The big picture: Warren's campaign released a document asserting her various plans would provide $10.7 trillion in combined federal and private investment.

  • It's a mashup of her existing proposals and some fleshed-out details in areas such as transport electrification, finance (via "green victory bonds") and more.

Details: The analysis from Data for Progress, a young outfit with growing cachet on the left, looked at potential jobs in energy, water infrastructure, transportation, and buildings.

  • They see 5.4 million jobs stemming from Warren's proposals for direct federal investment in "new and existing clean industries and implementation of green technologies."
  • But that swells to 10.6 million "due to strategic support for U.S. renewable manufacturing and export-oriented economic policy" — a conclusion that assumes each federal dollar "yields an additional 1.5 in exports and induced private-sector activity."

China-Iran deal envisions massive investments from Beijing

China and Iran have negotiated a deal that would see massive investments flow into Iran, oil flow out, and collaboration increase on defense and intelligence.

Why it matters: If the proposals become reality, Chinese cash, telecom infrastructure, railways and ports could offer new life to Iran’s sanctions-choked economy — or, critics fear, leave it inescapably beholden to Beijing.

House Judiciary Committee releases transcript of Geoffrey Berman testimony

The House Judiciary Committee on Monday released the transcript of its closed-door interview with Geoffrey Berman, the former top federal prosecutor in Manhattan who was forced out by Attorney General Bill Barr last month.

Why it matters: House Democrats have seized on Berman's testimony, in which he claimed the attorney general sought to "entice" him into resigning so that he could be replaced by SEC chairman Jay Clayton, to bolster allegations that the Justice Department has been politicized under Barr.
