nearvideo Hannity: Whistleblower lawyer is a trump-haters

Whistleblower lawyer called for a ‘coup’ and ‘rebellion’ against Trump in the year 2017.

Mark Zaid, one of the lawyers, the intelligence community whistleblower in the middle of the Democrats represented ” an ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuous in January, 2017, that a “coup has begun,” and “that the indictment will follow, eventually.”

Then, in July 2017, Zaid said: “I predict @CNN you are not playing a Central role in @real Donald trump completed his full term as President.” Also this month, Zaid tweeted, “We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive, even him and his followers.”

In the midst of a series of impeachment-related posts, Zaid to be sure that his Twitter followers that “like one falls, two more will take its place,” apparently referring to trump employees in the administration, the challenge of the White house. Zaid promised that the “coup” would occur in “many steps.”

The tweets came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend Federal laws in court, is likely to fuel Republican concerns that the anonymous whistleblower complaint is tainted with partiality. Trump’s phone call with Ukraine, the leader, the subject of the complaint, took place in July 2019.

“The whistleblower lawyer is away the game,” the trump card of the campaign’s communications director, Tim Murtaugh, told Fox News. “It has always been the Democrats plan to stage a coup, and accuse the President of Trump and everything you have ever needed was the right control. You have decided whiffed on Müller so now you, the completely in order, the Ukraine call. This proves that it was orchestrated from the beginning.”

House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy added: “We Zaid] should [in his word, to tilting that this is a coordinated, planned plot choice.”


Trump has repeatedly accused Democrats and the partisans in the intelligence community, effectively plotting a coup against him, through selective leaks and protracted investigations.

“45 years from now, we might think of stories from the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump. I’m getting old, but will be worth the wait,” Zaid wrote in June 2017.

He stressed his interest in the charge in a variety of other posts.

“Johnson (1868), Nixon (1973), Clinton (1998) impeachment hearings. Above, @realDonaldTrump (2017),” he said in may.

Fox News has reported previously, the highlighted social media posts from Zaid that what seemed to be the animus in the direction of the President.

Although Zaid described the Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., as a “Mature professional,” and article that touted widely, the reliability of the largely discredited Steele dossier is used to watch by the FBI, a former member of the trump campaign, Zaid has repeatedly discharged, the President unequivocally.

“I’m not a trump fan,” Zaid said on a podcast last year. “I’ll go out of their way to say on Twitter, ‘#resistance.’ It is not a resistance against the GOP or a Republican-I don’t think [Trump] is a Republican, quite honestly.” (Zaid also allow everyone to “President since 1993, boasted that he has complained”, and you followed “all”, regardless of the party affiliation.)


Also in the podcast Zaid confirmed that he was about to start fishing for the plaintiff, in a legal dispute over the Trump hotel in Washington, DC, in violation of unfair competition by the President and his staff.

“The unfair competition is, if Donald Trump was President, he exploits, his use of the presidency to the Oval Office. … to send business-hotel. … We identified this as a cause of action, and we were on the search for a plaintiff, and finally we found this one restaurant that was willing,” Zaid admitted. A Federal judge dismissed the lawsuit last year.

Zaid also had to write something of an open casting call for whistleblowers on Twitter as trump took office, that the CIA employee should “come to” his firm “legal challenge” of the new President.

Zaid publicly demanded that stars Debra messing, Nancy Sinatra, Cher and Rob Reiner are promoting its whistleblower law firm.

“@cher please take a look at our new whistleblower page” Zaid wrote in a tweet, which received no reply from the famous singer.

In February, Zaid escalated, to maintain its pitch Pure, that “we have a chance to sell” trump before the court. At one point last year, Zaid his services to Michael Avenatti, after the now embattled attorney mentioned built, and that he “now is not the representation of whistleblowers in ICE.”

Another of the whistleblower’s lawyers, Andrew Bakaj, tweeted in August 2017 that Trump should be removed under the 25th Amendment, and the same is true for the incapacitated President.

The posts showed up, the require as a Republican to the anonymous whistleblower to the front and testify. On Sunday, House Oversight Committee Ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, refused an offer of Zaid for the whistleblower anonymously on the written answers to questions the GOP.

“Written answers will not be sufficient opportunity to be of all the relevant facts and cross-examine the so-called whistleblower,” said Jordan. “You don’t get to ignite, a law enforcement effort, and never be accountable for their actions and their role in the orchestration of it.”

Zaid confirmed in a statement in October that his client “came in contact with the presidential candidates from both sides” – but insisted that the contact of the politicians’ roles as “representatives of the people – not as a candidate.”

His abrupt disclosure came shortly after The Washington Examiner reported that the Intelligence Community’s General inspector Michael Atkinson, the legislature, the whistleblower said worked “or had any kind of professional relationship” with one of the Democratic presidential candidate, citing three sources familiar with Atkinson interview with the the legislature in the last month.

Zaid and the other whistleblower lawyers have claimed that the whistleblower “has never worked for or advised a political candidate, campaign or party” – eliminating the possibility that a whistleblower, he is a candidate has a current, up to 2020 valid Democratic presidential candidate before or for office.

“The whistleblower is the story,” the lawyers said. “Until today, virtually every substantive allegation has been confirmed by other sources. For this reason, the identity of the whistleblower is irrelevant.”

But the Republicans have challenged the claim that the various statements made in the whistleblower claim to have seemingly inaccurate. For example, the explained to the whistleblower complaint that Trump has a “specific claim, that the Ukrainian leaders are looking for, and in turn, via the Server of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and tested by the US cybersecurity company CrowdStrike”, a requirement which is not published in the released transcript of the conversation, that of the trump management. Trump mentioned by CrowdStrike, but it is not the demand of the server.

Meanwhile, Democrats on Wednesday released a transcript of the statement by the US diplomat, Bill Taylor, in which he claimed that he had a “clear understanding” that Trump wanted to use the military assistance to Ukraine in return for the investigations, which could benefit him politically — although he had no first Hand knowledge of ” what is in the President’s mind.”

“That was my clear understanding, security, help, money would not come until the President [of Ukraine] is committed to the continuation of the investigation,” said Taylor.


Taylor is a top US-diplomat in the Ukraine, has refused to as a measure of interest in the Trump charge request, is alleged to be a quid pro quo was in play in spite of the White house.

The transcript shows that Taylor testified that he did other officials, that the White house was ready, both military aid and a prospective White house meeting with the Ukrainian President to extract, the Biden for a public service announcement from Kiev, the probes with respect to choice of disorder, and a company in connection with Ex-Vice President Joe ‘ s son, were in full swing.

“The coup has begun. … We will get rid of him again.”

“It is said, what Ambassador Sondland said,” Taylor, referring to the E. U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland. “He said that they were connected. They were connected to each other.”

But the Republicans countered that Taylor know in first line about the main events in question, but rather, his testimony from conversations with others.


In an exchange between GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin and Taylor during his deposition, Taylor was asked if he had any, first Hand knowledge of Trump air-conditioning, a study on the election 2016 and the three-piece on military aid.

Taylor said he did not speak of the President, or in direct communication with the President of the requests for the studies. Instead, he said, he was basing much of his testimony to what the former U.S. special envoy to the Ukraine negotiations, Kurt Volker, and Sondland told him.
