Whistleblower’s attorney called for impeachment in multiple 2017 posts
Mark Zaid, who is one of the lawyers representing the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment inquiry, made a number of tweets in 2017 that become remarkably telling in hindsight.
In January 2017, Zaid tweeted: #coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately. #lawyers.”
“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 tweeted in June 2017.
“I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president,” Zaid tweeted in July 2017.
“We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters,” Zaid wrote in another July 2017 tweet.
Zaid Hess boasted that he has sued “every” president since 1993, and pursues “them all,” regardless of party affiliation.
Trump says allegations he wanted Barr to clear him on Ukraine ‘Totally untrue’
New allegations emerged today that Trump asked Attorney General William Barr to host a press conference in order to clear him on wrongdoing in Ukraine.
“The story in the Amazon Washington Post, of course picked up by Fake N*ws CNN, saying, “President Trump asked for AG Barr to host a n*ws conference clearing him on Ukraine,” is totally untrue and just another FAKE N*WS story with anonymous sources that don’t exist….The LameStream Media, which is The Enemy of the People, is working overtime with made up stories in order to drive dissension and distrust!”
In railing against the reports, Trump tweeted: “Years ago, when Media was legitimate, people known as “Fact Checkers” would always call to check and see if a story was accurate. Nowadays they don’t use “Fact Checkers” anymore, they just write whatever they want!”
