CLINTON LAWYER MARC ELIAS POLITICAL LAW FIRM WAS FOUNDED BY OBAMA’S CHIEF WH COUNSEL BOB BAUER

Posted on

a man in a suit standing in front of a building: Marc Elias served as counsel to both Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee in 2016.

 

  • Perkins Coei super-lawyer Marc Elias is the go-to fixer of the Democrat Party.
  • Perkin’s Coei Robert Bauer pioneered Political Law and became Obama’s legal adviser and WH chief counsel.

 

( Free Beacon ) When Democratic campaigns across the country have major problems, their go-to fixer is super-lawyer Marc Elias.

Elias chairs the political law practice for Washington, D.C., law firm Perkins Coie, and he has been involved in nearly every legal question the Democrats have had this cycle.

The firm was founded by attorney Bob Bauer, who has been a close legal adviser to President Barack Obama ever since he decided to run for Senate in 2005. Bauer was the chief counsel for the Obama White House from Jan. 2010 to Jun. 2011.

While Bauer was at the White House, Elias took the reins of the law firm’s political practice. Now he has become a key player for Democrats who find themselves in need of urgent legal help.

“There is no Democratic-side campaign finance lawyer who is more important than Marc Elias,” Robert Lenhard, a former Federal Election Commission (FEC) chairman, told Politico. “That is without a doubt.”

Republicans … referred to Elias as “Harry Reid and Barack Obama’s personal political attorney,”

ROBERT BAUER

Obama Chief Legal Counsel:

Robert Bauer was President Obama’s personal attorney and the general counsel of the Obama for America presidential campaign prior to his appointment as White House Counsel. He has also previously served as the general counsel to the Democratic National Committee,[4] and had advised President Obama since Mr. Obama came to Washington, D.C. in 2005 as U. S. Senator. Bauer is married to Anita Dunn, the former director of communications at the White House.

 

Founder of Perkins Coei Political Law:

Devaney: We are definitely a pioneer in modern political law. When our partner Bob Bauer started the practice in 1981 there were not, interestingly, any significant political law practices in D.C. Bob moved to D.C., started one and it became, I’d say, the leading political law practice in the country. Over time he recruited very talented lawyers, and the practice continued to become stronger and stronger.

AFL-CIO’s Trumka puts Democrats on notice

FOXBusiness 

The AFL-CIO—the largest union in the United States—is holding its convention in St. Louis, Mo., this week, and its president, Richard Trumka, has been reelected by its members.

 

Trumka, who won his third four-year term, is putting the Democratic Party on notice, saying the nation’s largest labor federation cannot count on its support in a blanket fashion anymore.

“We’ll find hope and opportunity for working people, not inside the major political parties, but inside our movement and our communities,” the AFL-CIO president said Tuesday on Twitter.

President Donald Trump and Trumka have found common ground on issues such as renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), building the Keystone XL pipeline and infrastructure spending.

CONFIRMED: 99% OF UNION MONEY GOES TO DEMOCRAT PARTY AND OTHER LEFT-WING GROUPS

Posted on

 

( Daily Caller ) Unions across the country donated $765 million dollars to various organizations over the last four years, and 99 percent of that cash went to liberal-leaning causes.

Labor unions gave $764,952,394 to left-wing special interests between 2012 and 2016 according to the Center for Union Facts. Of the nearly $765 million, 99 percent of union political contributions went to left-wing causes. The Center for Union Facts compiled a comprehensive database of information about labor unions in the United States: outlining union spending, salary information, dues revenue data, and more using data from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

DOL data show between 2012 and 2016, roughly $240 million went to left-wing political groups. Labor unions gave $77 million to special interest groups and another $13 million to environmental groups. Over $25 million went to groups like the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the Rainbow Push Coalition.

During this same time frame, almost $307 million went to the Democratic Party and aligned groups including, Media Matters, the Clinton Foundation, Mi Familia Vota, the National Democratic Club, The Advocacy Fund, Progressive Democrats of America, and Planned Parenthood.

THEY KNOW! CNN: ‘LEADERS OF DEMOCRAT PARTY ARE BEHOLDREN TO HARVEY WEINSTEIN. HIS BEHAVIOR WAS AN OPEN SECRET’

Posted on

  • CNN:  “It was an open secret his behavior. Most of the leaders of the Democratic Party are beholden to Harvey Weinstein”

 

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Inside Politics,” CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jeff Zeleny stated that most of the Democratic Party’s leaders “are beholden to” Harvey Weinstein and his behavior wasn’t a secret.

Zeleny began by stating that Hillary has “commented on virtually everything since leaving public life. It took, as you said, about five days for this [her statement on Weinstein].”

Zeleny said, “Largely, it was an open secret, though, in all these circles, his behavior. And the reality is, California is the biggest and most flush ATM for Democratic politics in this country. He stood at the center of that. Nancy Pelosi, add her name to this list as well. She put out a very short statement on this. But the reality is, most of the leaders of the Democratic Party are beholden to him, have been beholden to him, and she still is the leader of the House Democrats here. Why not get out and give an interview, give a press conference? I mean, they have personal relationships with Harvey Weinstein. This is hypocrisy this week, no doubt. Because this was not a secret.”

VOTER REGISTRATION TRENDS FAVOR REPUBLICANS BIG TIME SINCE TRUMP WON

Posted on Updated on

 

( Big League Politics ) An ongoing analysis of voter registration trends since November 2016—the election of Donald Trump—continues to show significant trends toward Republicans almost across the board. A couple of notes on the data are necessary:

  1. In many cases—almost all except Arizona and Delaware—the total number of registered Democrats and Republicans both has fallen. This is normal. Secretaries of State purge voter rolls of those who have moved, died, or asked to be removed from the rolls. The baseline month is November 2016, but some states have not updated up to September. I used the most recent date in these cases. Pennsylvania’s data has still not been updated from May, but I’ll include it anyway.
  2. New Jersey was the only state to show one party declining (the Democrats) and the other gaining (the Republicans, though only by 287 voters).
  3. Unfortunately MI, WI, OH, MN, VA, GA, and TX do not register voters by party, so tracking these states is not possible. Once some of them—such as OH—have primaries, a comparison to previous primary turnout would be beneficial.

WHAT! TRUMP AND DEMOCRATS AGREE ON QUICK DACA AMNESTY FOR 800K ILLEGALS – BUT NO BORDER WALL

Posted on

 

At his White House meeting with moderates, according to The Hill, Trump is set to choose a legislative deal that quickly legalizes the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens on DACA, without getting any pro-American immigration reforms in return:

Indeed, said Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), the president is already getting impatient.

“He says, ‘Oh, DACA, we want to move on this quick, we don’t want to wait six months,’” Cuellar said after the meeting. “He said, ‘It’s already been six days and nothing’s happened.’”

Cuellar said Trump didn’t propose a timeline, but voiced concerns that waiting until the March 5 deadline grows closer would only put a spotlight on the issue and make it more difficult for Congress to act. The president, Cuellar said, wants to move “when people are not expecting it.”

“He said, ‘We don’t have to tie a wall to this. We can put a wall [in another bill],’” Cuellar said, emphasizing that other border enforcement measures would likely be included.

Although Trump is looking at pushing through a clean amnesty bill for DACA recipients, he did mention during the meeting, according to Cuellar, the possibility of passing Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-AR) pro-American worker “RAISE Act,” which cuts legal immigration in half, in exchange for amnesty.

Trump’s cave to DACA amnesty comes just a day after the White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short said the administration would look at exchanging amnesty for tax cuts. Short, as Breitbart News reported, is a former executive with the pro-mass immigration billionaires, the Koch brothers.

Additionally, Short led an effort in 2016 inside the Koch organization to derail Trump, opposing him for his “America First” agenda. Although Short’s anti-Trump operation never came to fruition, he went on to join Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) unsuccessful presidential campaign.

House Speaker Paul Ryan most recently would not rule out a plan to give amnesty to the 800,000 DACA recipients, as Breitbart News reported.
