BLM hires Clinton lawyer after donation scandal erupts

A recent tax filing from Black Lives Matter demonstrated how the Clinton political orbit has taken over the movement, because of the movement’s struggles to contain a growing donation scandal.

The Washington Examiner reported on the Clinton connections, which is worrisome because the Clinton family has been involved in many scandals over time.

BLM, which has yet to disclose how it spent its $60 million in donations, wrote that its accounting books are with longtime Clinton ally and lawyer Marc Elias’s Elias Law Group. It also listed another Clinton ally, Minyon Moore, as a new board member.

The organization did not say when the relationship between Elias Law Group and when Moore became a board member. But their inclusion into the organization, which is officially known as the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, signals that there could be a major cover-up underway.

After all, BLM filed a short tax filing, changed its accounting calendar (which is a highly unusual move for a charity), and did not answer any questions about where the $60 million in donations went. Especially after its cofounder, Patrisse Cullors, resigned amidst a multimillion-dollar house-buying scandal, which called into question how she had that much money to do so as a social justice activist.

Elias’s long political history includes his funding of the debunked, anti-Trump dossier written by former British spy Christopher Steele, playing a key role in creating Hillary Clinton’s Onward Together PAC (which Moore also worked for), working with left-wing dark money organizations like Arabella Advisors to influence elections, representing Joe Biden’s presidential campaign in 2020, and working for other Democratic Party apparatuses such as the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Moore, other than working for Clinton’s PAC, was a former assistant to President Bill Cinton, was the director of his White House’s political affairs, CEO of the Democratic National Committee, and a part of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle during the 2016 presidential campaign.
