Clinton’s best allies are leaving the Black Lives Matter board

Two top allies of Bill and Hillary Clinton have relinquished positions on the board of the nonprofit organization National Black Lives Matter, records show.

Minyon Moore and Marc Elias, who were listed on the organization’s February tax returns as board members, were missing from registration forms filed April 28 on behalf of the group in Florida and Oklahoma, the Washington Examiner reported.

Elias, head of the Elias Law Group, served as general counsel for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and was responsible for hiring Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm credited with compiling the infamous Steele dossier. Moore previously served as former President Clinton’s last director of political affairs in the White House.

“It’s important to note that the Elias Law Group is a firm focused on electing Democrats and advancing the progressive agenda,” Tom Anderson, director of the Government Integrity Project, a monitoring group, told the Examiner. “This makes her disappearance from the latest BLM Global Network Foundation filings a pivotal moment that likely heralds the complete collapse of what remains of the organization.”

The departures come as the national organization Black Lives Matter has been overshadowed by a scandal. Patrisse Khan-Cullors, co-founder of the BLM – a self-proclaimed “trained Marxist” – was arrested for committing a multi-million dollar property buying spree as the group’s eponymous protests swept the country.

The Clinton world’s departures come as the organization prepares to file federal tax forms with the IRS next week that will show how it spent $90 million in 2020. Khan-Cullors has previously warned that the disclosures are “triggering” and made them “unsafe” about members of their group. Clinton’s best allies are leaving the Black Lives Matter board
