They can't exist, because the text of the TPP is classified Top Secret. It would be illegal to discuss its contents in public, or publish excerpts of it. Members of Congress can read the text of the TPP in classified settings only, but cannot take notes, make copies, or discuss it openly.

Which raises a very interesting question as to the legality of granting Obama Trade Promotion Authority (fast-track) for a trade treaty which cannot be openly debated by Congress in consultation with its constituents.
