(…) Elias works for the Perkins Coie law firm in Washington, DC, and once represented Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. In 2017, the Washington Post identified Elias and Perkins Coie as having hired the Fusion GPS opposition research firm on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
As Breitbart News has reported throughout the 2020 election, Elias often led Democrats in suing election authorities in battleground states to change their voting rules to expand vote-by-mail, extend deadlines, or relax rules to prevent fraud.
In April 2020, Breitbart News reported that Elias had demanded vote-by-mail across the nation, and less restrictive rules, in an article in The Atlantic — a publication known for its editorial hostility to Trump. Hillary Clinton tweeted her agreement:
States must take concrete steps now to make sure every citizen can be heard in November, no matter where we are by then in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. https://t.co/OFIPHqcdM0

The New Republic praised Elias in September as “The Man Who Is Determined to Stop Trump From Rigging the Election.”
