Marc Elias is an activist lawyer and longtime associate of the Clintons. He also played a leading role in Russiagate.
He has recently taken over management of the Black Lives Matter organization, which is facing increased scrutiny over their finances.
This would seem to indicate that Black Lives Matter is in fact aligned with the Democrat party, despite their earlier denials.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Revealed: Clintonworld takeover of Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter filings reveal prominent Democratic lawyer Marc Elias and another longtime ally of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have taken on key roles in the charity amid scrutiny over its leadership and finances.
Elias, best known for his funding of British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s discredited anti-Trump dossier while he served as Clinton’s 2016 campaign general counsel, appears to be representing the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation through his recently formed Elias Law Group. BLM’s national organization repeatedly lists the Elias firm as one of its addresses and states in its short-year 2020 Form 990 that its books were now in the care of the Elias Law Group.
Additionally, Minyon Moore, a longtime top ally of both Bill and Hillary Clinton, is now listed as part of BLM’s board of directors in the charity’s filings.
It’s not clear when BLM’s relationships with Elias Law Group and Moore began.
Black Lives Matter filed a charitable organization registration statement earlier this month with the New Mexico attorney general’s office, listing addresses for BLM in Arizona and Oakland, California, but says BLM’s “other address” is “c/o [courtesy of] Elias Law Group” in Washington, D.C.
BLM also filed an annual registration renewal fee report with the California attorney general this month, with the filing saying multiple times that one of its addresses was “c/o Elias Law Group.” The filing also states BLM’s “books are in the care of … the organization” that is “located at … c/o Elias Law Group.”
Do you think the liberal media will look into this?
This is beyond parody, the lawyer for BLM and its missing $60 million is…
Marc Elias, the dossier-funding, gerrymander-excusing, recount-manipulating scumbag!

It must be nice to be a Democrat.
