It is increasingly looking like Marc Elias, the chief lawyer architect of the Hillary Clinton campaign’s efforts to manufacture baseless suspicion that Donald Trump and his campaign “colluded” with the Russians to tilt the 2016 election, may face legal and ethical consequences for his role. We shall see: the investigation’s results are still being analyzed. Meanwhile, Elias is unrepentant and still devising ways to assist his favorite political party ( he has been often called the most prominent Democratic attorney in America ) with strategies for which “dubious” is a compliment.
Behold this tweet by Elias from this week:
The quote below Elias’s “prediction” is from Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which was passed during the post-Civil War reconstruction period and was specifically aimed at officeholders under the former Confederate States of America, to prevent them from serving in the United States Congress. Nevermind…any port in a storm, and if the Democrats can find a way to distort the Constitution’s intent to hold onto power, they will undoubtedly try it. Elias’s “prediction” is in fact a transparent attempt to talk his party into yet another desperation ploy, this one based on the still current Big Lie that what the 300 boobs armed with (at most) sticks and bear spray were trying to do on January 6 is overthrow the government. The plan also requires a very loose definition of “engaged.”
As noted in a previous post, this guy has already lied to the news media about the Clinton campaign’s role in trying to bring down the Trump administration. Elias is more guilty of attempting an “insurrection” than any GOP House members, who at most argued that the 2020 election was tainted, unreliable, and a legitimate target of protest, and no insurrection charge against him would last five minutes before a judge.
Is the public aware of what a cynical, dishonest, slimy batch of anti-democratic Machiavellians (that’s ol’ Niccolo above!) are calling the audibles for the today’s Democratic Party?
