Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) failed presidential campaign received contributions from a law firm used by deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, according to July 2019 report.
In 2008, former Trump Labor Secretary Alex Acosta met with Kirkland and Ellis lawyers in his capacity as U.S. attorney in Miami and cut an agreement that let Epstein only serve 13 months in prison.
Despite the connection to Epstein, then-Harris spokesman Ian Sams dismissed concerns about taking money from law firm partners that were uninvolved with Epstein’s plea deal.
However, one attorney believes any campaign connection to the firm is unacceptable.
“If any connection with Kirkland and Ellis is a stain on (senior Justice Department officials), why isn’t a connection with the law firm for the receipt of campaign contributions a stain on her own campaign?” said Common Cause lawyer Paul Ryan.
