Marc Elias, the attorney who infamously retained Fusion GPS to produce the largely discredited anti-Trump dossier on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, has been retained to represent Sen. Bill Nelson’s recount efforts in Florida. The Florida Senate race is likely headed to a recount after late reporting from Broward County lowered Gov.

Attorney George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, declared in a New York Times op-ed published Thursday that President Donald Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting Attorney General is “unconstitutional” and “illegal.” The premise by which Conway and co-author Neal Katyal’s argue against Whitaker’s appointment is based on the Constitution’s  Appointments Clause — the provision to which principal officers of the United States must not only be nominated by the president but also confirmed by the Senate using the body’s “Advice and Consent” powers.
