Marc Elias, Hillary Clinton’s former top lawyer who hired Fusion GPS to carry out the “collusion delusion” conspiracy oppo research, is now working for 2020 Democratic contender Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA). Elias personally “retained Fusion GPS … to conduct the research” and did it “on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC,” according to The Washington Post. Even being the subject of a recent federal lawsuit alleging the breaking of campaign finance laws and two pending Federal Election Commission complaints did not stop Harris from hiring Clinton’s sleazeball leftovers.

The former top lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign who hired Fusion GPS to carry out controversial opposition research against then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016 is now working for a top 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful.
Marc Elias, who heads Perkins Coie’s political law group, became general counsel for California Sen. Kamala Harris’ presidential bid this year. Elias, who held the same position in Clinton’s campaign, is named in two pending Federal Election Commission complaints and in a recent federal lawsuit alleging that the Clinton campaign broke campaign finance laws when it used Perkins Coie to hire Fusion GPS.
Fusion GPS went on to hire British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who compiled an unverified dossier allegedly based on sources close to the Kremlin which was disseminated to the media and used by the FBI to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants targeting former Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
