The day after the Arizona state senate voted to conduct an audit of “You Know, The Thing,” the Maricopa County election board held an emergency meeting. They’re running out of options for hiding the ballots any longer. They’ve lost a court case, and now their bosses in the state legislature have mandated that a team forensic out-of-state experts come in and take a look. All of this seems a bit weird for a county election board that is supposed to be non-partisan, doesn’t it? What’s the matter, guys? Why can’t anyone take a look?
The Maricopa County election board won’t need to come up with any more of their own excuses, because the national Democrat Party has sent in the cavalry. The law firm Perkins-Coie has been sent in to “take charge” of the situation, since the local yokels have their backs against the wall.
If Perkins-Coie sounds familiar, that’s because it is Hillary Clinton’s law firm. Those attorneys were a central part of the Russian collusion hoax against Donald Trump.
It’s been a while but think back to 2017. In late spring of 2017 – after James Comey had been fired and just as the Mueller investigation was ramping up –Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA) asked a serious question. Everyone else was hyperventilating about the Russian potty dossier at the time, when Nunes basically said, “Wait a second – who paid for that dossier?”
The entire mainstream media and every elected Democrat in Congress exploded with outrage about the sheer irrelevance of that question. How dare Devin Nunes try to cloud the issue? The dossier, they told us, was the important thing because it had Russian potty stories and “proof” that Michael Cohen went to Prague! Donald Trump is Putin’s puppet, so why are you worried about who paid for the dossier??
In late summer of that year, it finally came out that Hillary Clinton and her friend Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) – as the head of the DNC – had paid for the dossier. But it wasn’t just a straight link between Hillary and the British spy who made up the dossier’s contents out of thin air. They did it in the shadiest way possible.
Hillary and Wasserman-Schultz gave about $20 million to their lawyers at Perkins-Coie. Then, Perkins-Coie paid Fusion GPS, which in turn was paying the salaries of the British spy (Christopher Steele) and Department of Justice lawyer Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr. Perkins-Coie helped to hide the money trail on Hillary’s political opposition research, with the assistance of the FBI and the Department of Justice, to make the dossier look like it was coming from the intelligence community.
The media instantly shifted gears: Well, who cares that Hillary paid for the dossier? Michael Cohen went to Prague, after all!
But we all knew that who paid for it absolutely mattered. I knew the Russian potty dossier was a Clinton-paid hit piece the first moment I read it, for two reasons: First, it was the most salacious damned thing I’d ever read. And second, because it didn’t read like an intel report. I knew it was fake news and I knew it was political and not intelligence-related.
Folks, I’ve been doing this for about 20 years now and I know an oppo research doc when I see one. I’ve got Chris Van Hollen’s file from the National Republican Senatorial Committee on my desk right now as I’m typing this. (Hi, Chris. Next year should be really fun. P.S. I know about those mortgage payments.)
I’ve strayed into the weeds a bit, so let’s get back on topic: The law firm Perkins-Coie has been sent to Maricopa County, Arizona by the Democrat National Committee (DNC). Why do you suppose the Russian collusion hoax lawyers are headed to a county in Arizona to try to stop an audit of the 2020 election ballots? You already know, of course.
Even people who blindly chose to believe the results of the 2020 election are starting to find it a little weird that there’s so much stonewalling when it comes to checking results and conducting audits. Federal election ballots are supposed to be preserved for 22 months after election day. Why? Audits! That’s the whole point of storing the ballots! Otherwise every state would just burn the ballots the day after the election.
Marc Elias, the guy at Perkins-Coie who serves as Hillary Clinton’s personal hitman (oh… whoops! Poor choice of words, maybe…). I meant to say as Hillary’s personal “attorney.” Anyway, he’s threatening to sue the state of Arizona if the Maricopa County audit actually begins. They don’t want anyone to examine a single ballot, and now the national Democrat Party is jumping in the way.
What’s the matter, guys? Feeling nervous?
