The law firm Perkins Coie is back in the news acting dodgy. Fox News and others reported that Michael Sussmann (Perkins Coie lawyer) provided documents as well as computer storage devices on Russian hacking to the FBI. The DNC and the Clinton campaign also used Perkins Coie to hire Fusion GPS. Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele to write the anti-Trump dossier. Do you remember the movie The Devil’s Advocate with Al Pacino? Satan (played by Al Pacino) used a powerful law firm to try and control the world. “The law, my boy, puts us into everything. It's the ultimate backstage pass. It's the new priesthood, baby.”    

 

Since 2003, Democrats have paid Perkins Coie $96 million in legal fees. That works out to $6 million a year or $500 thousand a month.  The Democratic National Committee and Democratic Senatorial and Congressional Campaign Committees combined for a total of $33 million paid to Perkins Coie. Barack (no scandal during my presidency) Obama paid Perkins Coie $9 million. Why would he need to pay a law firm that much money? Hillary also paid them $6 million and Al Franken paid them $3.7 million.

 

There are 813 different candidates and PACs that have paid money to Perkins Coie. Below are the candidates/PACs that have paid more than $400 thousand to Perkins Coie.
