Did Kamala Harris kiss Godmother Hillary Clinton’s ring? It sure seems that way. Not only have Clinton donors been flocking her way, Hillary’s staff from 2016 have been quietly showing up for work on Kamala’s campaign. Many conservatives are still convinced that the election deck was totally stacked in her favor that cycle, but Clinton managed to lose anyway.
Now, word has made it beyond the Beltway that Harris has a new campaign attorney. None other than Marc Elias from Perkins Coie. Famous in song and story as the man who hired Fusion GPS to orchestrate the whole Fusion GPS dirty dossier operation. Are they planning to put phase two into effect?
Elias is in charge of the political law group at Perkins Coie and now serves as general counsel for Senator Harris. That is the same title he held when working for Clinton.
According to Washington Examiner, He is currently under two separate investigations by the Federal Election Commission and a federal lawsuit charges the Clinton campaign with breaking campaign finance laws when they “used Perkins Coie to hire Fusion GPS.”
Fusion GPS, in turn, hired Christopher Steele. None of his fantastic stories were ever verified, but that didn’t stop the Federal Bureau of Investigation from using it to get wire tap warrants against President Trump’s political campaign.
Legal activists insist that Hillary for America “purposely concealed the hiring of Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele by reporting all the payments that it made to Perkins Coie as ‘legal services’ without mentioning opposition research.” Elias was personally responsible.
All by itself, Harris sharing Clinton’s attorney wouldn’t be all that noteworthy, considering he is an election specialist. What raises red flags is all the money moving her way.
Many of the same wealthy donors who backed Clinton have been throwing money at Harris, especially in Florida and California.
“Yes, it is true that Clinton’s financial supporters are lining up behind Harris,” one former Clinton campaign staffer confirms. “She’s spent a lot of time courting big bundlers. She’s very good in meetings, very charming.”
Hollywood director J.J. Abrams and his wife have been extremely friendly to Harris. They hosted a $2,800-per-plate dinner. Back in March Harris headed to Miami where she sat down with lobbyist Alex Heckler for an expensive fundraising dinner with his wife. They raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Clinton too.
Another signal that Harris is on the inside of the Clinton machine are the people she has working for her campaign. Her own sister, Maya Harris, not only will be the chairwoman of Kamala’s campaign, she was a senior policy adviser to Hillary Clinton.

Strategist Averell “Ace” Smith signed on as a senior adviser. During Bill Clinton’s campaign, Smith was an “opposition researcher.” Just like Christopher Steele.
Laphonza Butler will be cashing checks written by Harris as a senior adviser. When he was president of the Service Employees International Union Local 2015 he critically endorsed Clinton over Sanders at just the right moment.
