Consulting firm McKinsey & Company will allow Mayor Pete Buttigieg to release the list of clients he served while working for the company from 2007 to 2010, the Buttigieg campaign confirmed Monday.

Why it matters: Buttigieg has faced increased scrutiny for his time at McKinsey, especially in light of reports that the powerful firm helped Immigration and Customs Enforcement find “detention savings opportunities,” among other controversial projects. Buttigieg, who says he was mostly "making a lot of spreadsheets and PowerPoints" during his short time at the company, had been blocked from discussing his clients by a confidentiality agreement.

Driving the news: Sen. Elizabeth Warren attacked the Indiana mayor last week for not disclosing those names. Buttigieg made another effort at transparency this week by releasing his full client list from when he worked at the high-powered and controversial consulting firm McKinsey & Company from 2007 to 2009.
