(Worthy News) – 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. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
BLM Louisville defends bailing out activist in assassination attempt of mayoral candidate
A Black Lives Matter chapter took responsibility Thursday for the decision to post bond for an activist accused in the attempted assassination of a candidate for mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, saying that the alleged shooter “needed support.”
Black Lives Matter Louisville said that it bailed out 21-year-old Quintez Brown, a columnist and community activist accused of firing a 9mm Glock handgun at the campaign office of Democrat Craig Greenberg on Monday.
The Louisville Community Bail Fund, which is reportedly affiliated with BLM Louisville, paid the $100,000 bond set Tuesday by a judge after Mr. Brown was charged with one count of attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment. He has pleaded not guilty. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
