Mark Zaid, the politically far-left personal attorney for the alleged Whistleblower who is at the center of the second Impeachment hoax against President Donald J. Trump, was exposed in the media for Twitter posts that show Democrats intended to impeach Trump before there was any cause to do so.
In a tweet on January 30, 2017, marking the removal of Sally Yates, Zaid wrote, “Coup has started. First of Many Steps. #Rebellion, #impeachment will follow ultimately.”

Zaid had Trump’s impeachment on his mind as early as June of 2017, and posted that he was looking forward to Impeaching Trump.

This news comes at a time when Zaid is posting things critical to people who support Trump, by saying he has a right to face his accuser, something Zaid, furiously denies should happen.
“I would love to see discussion on how one can promote #FirstAmendment but also protect #whistleblowers. Sometimes not reporting something is actually far more protective of democracy, especially in a time of fragility,” Zaid posted on Twitter, Wednesday.
From Zaid’s recent interview in the Washington Examiner, Zaid’s talks about fantasies surrounding the Watergate “Deep Throat” character, and how he crafted his client’s defense to be kept anonymous.
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.
“Deep Throat” was a name given to a government leaker in the 1974 Richard Nixon Impeachment threat to conceal his identity.
Zaid continues to demand that his client’s name be kept quiet, even as Breitbart News revealed the name of the most highly suspected person, believed to be the “Whistleblower”.
