1-30-2017: “#Coup Has Started.” First Of Many Steps. #Rebellion. #Impeachment Will Follow Ultimately. #Lawyers – Mark S. Zaid
You can’t make this up: That moment when suddenly everything anti-Trump for the past two years makes sense – because of a Tweet and a Lawyer and a Whistleblower.
“The Whistleblower’s lawyer gave away the game,” the Trump campaign’s communications director, Tim Murtaugh, told Fox News. “It was always the Democrats’ plan to stage a coup and impeach President Trump and all they ever needed was the right scheme. They whiffed on Mueller so now they’ve settled on the perfectly fine Ukraine phone call. This proves this was orchestrated from the beginning.”

It’s funny y’all because this story has been out for a few hours, long enough to get it buzzing on Twitter, and I found it of course on Fox News, but when I search for “Zaid Said” the “investigative journo pros” over at ABC and MSNBC and CNN and all the others…they’ve got nothing. They’re quiet about this, so quiet you can almost smell the panic. Oh well, maybe they’re helping Zaid search for another Whistleblower.
I mean, for goodness sake, Trump already talked about it at his rally and explained all of it for the hoax that it is. It seems like it would be a story that would be going viral by now. Right? It’s all a hoax!

Attorney Mark S. Zaid, representing the Whistleblower who reported the ‘Ukraine call’ is not a fan of President Trump.
Since January 2017, Zaid wrote that a “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”
Then, in July 2017, Zaid remarked, “I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president.” Also that month, Zaid tweeted, “We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters.”
Amid a slew of impeachment-related posts, Zaid assured his Twitter followers that “as one falls, two more will take their place,” apparently referring to Trump administration employees who defy the White House.
The tweets, which came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend federal laws in court, are likely to fuel Republican concerns that the anonymous Whistleblower’s complaint is tainted with partisanship. Trump’s call with Ukraine’s leader, which is the subject of the complaint, occurred in July 2019.

This is Eric Ciaramella – the “Whistleblower’s” – lawyer calling for a rebellion against duly elected President @realDonaldTrump.
Disbar Mark Zaid now.
Then charge him with SEDITION. https://t.co/0UUdRTaNCZ

Zaid has been working with the Dems, staging the coup to take down Trump since the moment Trump was elected, and he literally gave the game away on the Ukraine phone call! “THE PERFECT CALL” doesn’t implicate Trump but it seems like corruption that went down in Ukraine is turning up to implicate plenty of other people in the D.C. Swamp.
It seems like Zaid has a pretty big head and has been feeling pretty gosh darn comfortable with himself. Maybe he took a jump because he trusted that the Deep State would have his back no matter what? (Hmmm…not so sure about that, “Liddle buddy.”)
Fox News has previously reported on social media posts by Zaid that highlighted what appeared to be open animus toward the president. Although Zaid described Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as a “mature professional,” and circulated articles that touted the reliability of the largely discredited Steele dossier used by the FBI to surveil a former member of Trump’s campaign, Zaid has repeatedly unloaded on the president in no uncertain terms.
Will you look at the hubris he projected on Twitter and directly to Trump, also on January 30, 2017!?

“45 years from now we might be recalling stories regarding the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump. I’ll be old, but will be worth the wait,” Zaid wrote in June 2017.
He emphasized his interest in impeachment in a variety of other posts.
“I’m not a Trump fan,” Zaid said on a podcast last year. “I go out of my way on Twitter to say ‘#Resistance.’ It’s not a resistance against the GOP or a Republican — I don’t think [Trump] is a Republican, quite frankly.” (Zaid also boasted that he has sued “every” president since 1993, and pursues “them all,” regardless of party affiliation.)
Zaid is a big believer in CNN polls too, HAHAHAHAHA:

If it were up to Mark S. Zaid, he’d have gotten rid of Trump long ago because “we have to.”

“Coup has started. … We will get rid of him.”— Whistleblower attorney Mark Zaid, in 2017.
And just today, November 6, 2019, Zaid said this:
Whistleblower attorney Mark Zaid, an aficionado of Watergate history, said leaving his client’s identity unresolved indefinitely would encourage future whistleblowers. “Our ideal ending is that the identity of the whistleblower is never known and the individual continues on with their personal and professional life as if nothing ever happened,” he told the Washington Examiner. “That is the best outcome for most whistleblowers, who simply fulfilled their constitutional duty by reporting a reasonable belief of wrongdoing,” he said.
“Our ideal ending is that the identity of the whistleblower is never known,"

Oh really? It’s quite hilarious, actually, check out his Twitter feed. As of 11/6/2019 at 8PM he had this quote on his profile: “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” – Mark Zaid
(Yes, Mark Zaid Said That Mark Twain Said That. Wink.)
In closing, I thought I’d share three Mark Zaid YouTube clips. This first one includes what he said one year ago when he was pushing the Russia layer of his onion on Legal Talk Network.
Next up is Zaid peeling back this layer of his onion, playing the expert on Kavanaugh’s case:
But wait, this finale is the best! Here’s a beauty from 2013 when he was blowing his own whistle, instructing a joint cybercrime class at Touro Law Center on what it means to be a lawyer. (LOL) Start at about 18 minutes in where he starts asking about Snowden and asks his class if Snowden was a hero or a villain. “It’s a very, very grey area. I don’t think it’s black or white. Much of it’s going to come down to where you might fall ideologically rather than legally. And this is one of the things I’ve been trying to push within my own legal community — as to what’s the role of the lawyer and what are the interests that we’re serving — and how do we NOT CROSS THE LINE into illegality or unethical behavior as a lawyer?”
YES, ZAID SAID THAT! Enjoy the show.
