Two close allies of Bill and Hillary Clinton have taken key leadership roles with Black Lives Matter, recent filings have revealed.
This comes as the organization is under scrutiny in multiple states over its finances and reportedly has $60 million cash on hand.
Democratic election lawyer Marc Elias, who was the lead attorney for Hillary’s campaign in 2016 and is now under mounting suspicion of having played a role in the false Trump-Russia story, and longtime ally of both Bill and Hillary, Minyon Moore, have taken leadership roles in the “charity.”
“The latest filing’s addition of partisan lawyer Marc Elias confirms the group is more political than charitable,” Scott Walter, the president of the Capital Research Center.
“But it also suggests that finally some left-wing heavyweights have begun to deal with the embarrassing mess made by a major activist group the institutional Left has failed to, pardon the term, police.”
Indiana’s Attorney General Todd Rokita said of the charity’s financial disclosure mess:
“It appears that the house of cards may be falling, and this happens eventually with nearly every scam, scheme, or illegal enterprise.
“I see patterns that scams kind of universally take: failure to provide board members, failure to provide even executive directors, failure to make your filings available.
“It all leads to suspicion.”
The Washington Examiner reported:
The national Black Lives Matter group pulled off an accounting maneuver that allowed it to delay reporting what it did with its $60 million bankroll from 2020.
Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the charity that serves as the face of the national BLM movement, quietly changed its 12-month accounting cycle to run July through June, giving it until mid-May to report what it did with the millions that flooded into its coffers beginning in the second half of 2020.
The new BLM filing with New Mexico also said that Minyon Moore is a “Board Member” for BLM, and BLM’s California filing lists her as a “Board Member” too.
Hillary Clinton’s Onward Together PAC was reportedly incorporated by Elias in April 2017, and Elias is listed as a “Governor” for the Clinton PAC in a business filing for the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. Moore was listed as the “Director/President” at Onward Together for the fiscal years of 2017, 2018, and 2019.
Clinton posted on Facebook in May 2020 that Onward Together would “partner with” Elias’s Democracy Docket to “protect Americans’ right to vote by mail.”
And she posted in June 2020 that her followers should “join Onward Together and Marc Elias in the fight for voting rights by signing up for Democracy Docket.”
Journalist Lee Fang said:
“Kind of incredible: BLM national org now run in part by the DNC’s top lawyer and Minyon Moore, former Clinton aide who now runs a corporate lobbying firm for natural gas interests, for-profit hospitals, and other business clients.
“Dewey Square Group, Minyon Moore’s lobby firm, is currently helping lead the push on behalf of Lyft, Uber, and DoorDash to make drivers in Massachusetts ineligible for the minimum wage and block them from being able to form or join a labor union.”
