    2 Lawyer Tied to Clinton Campaign & ‘Pee Dossier,’ Leads Dems’ Florida Recount Efforts

    What department does Trump send down there to oversee this recount?

    Marc Elias, Lawyer Tied to Clinton Campaign & ‘Pee Dossier,’ Leads Dems’ Florida Recount Efforts
    By Aaron Klein - 8 Nov 2018



    Marc Elias, the attorney who infamously retained Fusion GPS to produce the largely discredited anti-Trump dossier on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, has been retained to represent Sen. Bill Nelson’s recount efforts in Florida.


    The Florida Senate race is likely headed to a recount after late reporting from Broward County lowered Gov. Rick Scott’s lead to about 17,000 votes, meaning the election is within the .25% margin necessary to require a hand recount. The race has already reached the 0.5 percent threshold to require a machine recount.

    In a conference call with reporters, Elias claimed that optical-scan machines may not have registered ballots that were poorly marked, and he contended that Nelson would emerge victorious from a recount, which has not yet been officially authorized.

    “We believe that at the end of this process, Sen. Nelson is going to be declared the winner,” Elias said.

    Elias added: “We’re doing this not just because it’s automatic, but we’re doing it to win. A significant number of ballots have not yet been counted and, because of the size of Florida, we believe the results of the election are unknown and require a recount.”

    Elias is widely considered one of the most powerful attorneys associated with the Democratic Party. He is chair of the Political Law Group at the Perkins Coie law firm. Elias represented Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign as well as the Democratic National Committee. He was brought in by Nelson’s campaign to oversee official recount efforts.

    Last year, the Washington Post reported that in April 2016, Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie retained Fusion GPS to conduct the firm’s anti-Trump work on behalf of both Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the DNC. The work resulted in the publication of the dossier authored by former British spy Christopher Steele.

    Through Perkins Coie, Clinton’s campaign and the DNC continued to fund Fusion GPS until October 2016, days before Election Day, the Post reported.

    While it is not clear how much the Clinton campaign or the DNC paid Fusion GPS, the UK Independent, citing campaign finance records, reported that the Clinton campaign doled out $5.6 million to Perkins Coie from June 2015 to December 2016.

    Records show that since November 2015, the DNC paid the law firm $3.6 million in “legal and compliance consulting.”

    Steele reportedly met with the FBI on July 5, 2016 to report his purported findings about Trump and Russia. The Steele dossier was reportedly utilized by the FBI in part to conduct its probe into Trump over the unsubstantiated Russia collusion claims.

    According to House Intelligence Committee documents, the questionable dossier was also used by Obama administration officials to obtain a FISA warrant to conduct surveillance on Carter Page, who briefly served as a volunteer foreign policy adviser to Trump’s campaign. The political origins of the dossier and issues relating to Steele’s credibility as a source were kept from the FISA court, a House Republican memo documents.

    Besides its role in sending funds to Fusion GPS, Perkins Coie also reportedly helped draft the outside firm CrowdStrike to aid with the DNC’s allegedly hacked servers.

    CrowdStrike is the third-party company ultimately relied upon by the FBI to make its assessment about alleged Russian hacking into the DNC. The DNC reportedly did not allow the FBI to gain access to servers that were suspected of being hacked, instead coming to an arrangement with the federal agency in which CrowdStrike carried out forensics on the servers and shared details with the FBI.

    In Florida, meanwhile, Republican Ron DeSantis, the former Congressman who won the gubernatorial election, is now within the .5% threshold required for a machine recount.

    Opponent Andrew Gillum has not officially asked for a recount and that effort is considered a longshot, but Gillum’s campaign on Thursday hinted at challenging the ballot counting.

    “On Tuesday night, the Gillum for Governor campaign operated with the best information available about the number of outstanding ballots left to count. Since that time, it has become clear there are many more uncounted ballots than was originally reported,” stated Gillum’s communications director, Johanna Cervone. “Mayor Gillum started his campaign for the people, and we are committed to ensuring every single vote in Florida is counted.”

    These democrat counties in Florida and Arizona are playing tricks because they just can’t accept the fact they lost. I will not be shocked if investigations lead to rampant fraud. Republicans need to send every lawyer we have to protect the legitimacy of these elections.

    I also read, can't remember where, that Dem candidate Kyrsten Sinema took the lead in the Arizona Senate race in new numbers released by the state Thursday night, flipping the race from what had appeared to be a GOP hold, and according to AZ SOS office Maricopa County still has about 350,000 ballots outstanding.

    Ooops! Looks like the 205 provisional ballots that were approved by the Broward elections office and tabulated maybe should have gone to the canvassing board first so they could be challenged by the candidates' reps. Stay tuned.

    Some quick math: McSally needs to win up to 255,000 of these remaining up to 500,000 ballots, or 51%, to eke out an approximately 1,000 vote win. This is definitely doable with the remaining votes but it’s going to be razor close and she could just as easily come up short.

    Early Voting needs to be ditched! Before “Early” voting we used to know the results on election day or at least the next morning. Now “Early” voting is giving us ballots that get counted very late, days late apparently. Pathetic system made for cheating because the loser knows exactly how many votes thay have to “find” in some misplaced ballot box.

    Woah! Scott just kicked butt in his Press Conference. He went down on Palm Beach and Broward Counties. He pointed out the election fraud of the past with the Snipes woman. He is getting law enforcement involved immediately and he is using every legal measure that he has to keep the “Liberals” (his words) from stealing the election. He also said have filed a lawsuit against both Counties. It was the most forceful I have ever seen him.

    @marcorubio

    This video,posted by an Independent Cong candidate in 18 (who was endorsed by Bernie Sanders in 16) purports to show BrowardCounty ballots being transported from polling places in private cars.

    Has anyone in local media looked into this claim or asked elections dept about it?

    I completely agree! Plus, there needs to be a deadline for counting ANY votes. I was going to be generous and say 24 hours after polls close on election day, but really, there is NO reason to not simply say that ALL absentee ballots, etc, must be received and counted by the same time as polls close for that state.

    You want your vote to count, and you can't vote in person on election day? Well, you'd better plan ahead, then, and mail uour ballot in with plenty if time to spare, just in case.

    If you can do it so your Christmas cards arrive on time, you can manage to do it for something as important as voting!

    A legitimate recount is no longer possible.
    The total ballot count (total votes, not who they voted for) was hidden from the public.
    The ballot counting process was and is being done without witnesses as mandated by law.
    The Snipes and the other democrat voting supervisor refused to comply with the governor's legal request for a total ballot count, and instead, for two days, locked the doors and prevented any witnesses from observing, as they continue to find/manufacture new ballots.

    Basically nobody knows how many total ballots were legally cast, so nobody can prove how many "new" ballots were added to obtain the "desired" election results. (Doors were locked, no witnesses allowed, fake ballots were added until the numbers became what the democrats wanted)

    Just in! They have already released a tentative total that puts Democrat Nelson back in the Senate and robs Scott from his legally elected position. I expect that they will soon release totals that will also put Gillum into the Governor's house. He has just announced that he is UN-CONCEDING.

    There is no real election process in Florida anymore. Any legitimate recount, will now be impossible since there is now no way to determine what ballots were legally cast and what ones were illegally added.
    The election procedure has been fatally poisoned, a recount now would be totally meaningless. We will just add, count and recount ballots until the numbers add up to what the Democrats want.
    Lawyers will just add to the mess.

    Florida law already requires all absentee ballots to be mailed 6 days before election day.
    All absentee ballots that are personally delivered are required to be put in the box 1 day before election day.
    No absentee or mail ballots can be "found" or delivered after the day prior to election day.

    That is Florida law and that law has been broken only by Palm Beach and Broward Counties for the last several elections.
    Every other county manages to do their job, except for the 2 Democrat counties of Broward and Palm Beach.

    It's time to put the ballot box away and open up the other box here in Florida.
