Elias is the lawyer representing Hillary Clinton's campaign and the DNC. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

The person familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential client matters, said the arrangement was brokered by Marc Elias, a lawyer for the campaign and the DNC, and his law firm of Perkins Coie.
