More on Zaid
LINK

Mark Zaid — a lawyer representing the whistleblower whose complaint catapulted House Democrats' impeachment probe against President Donald Trump — is under fire for boasting on Twitter last year that he successfully helped "guys who had child porn issues" gain security clearances from the U.S. government.

In reaction to a Slate article questioning how an alleged domestic abuser was granted clearance, Zaid bragged, "I've gotten clearances for guys who had child porn issues."

The Daily Caller reached out to Zaid regarding the comment ,and the attorney elaborated: "I have represented numerous individuals who have all sorts of issues involving their security clearances, including allegations of child porn, which turn out to be rarely true," he explained. "Every time I prevail in a case, the USGOVTP determines it is in the national security interests of our country to grant these individuals access to classified information."

This is the second time in a week Zaid has faced scrutiny for resurfaced Twitter comments, as they trickle in amid the lawyer's high-profile representation of the anonymous whistleblower at the heart of the House Democrats' impeachment of the president.

Earlier in the week, Fox News published a series of tweets from Zaid made soon after the president took office, where the lawyer called for a "coup" and "rebellion" against the commander in chief.

Zaid attempted to clarify those messages with a statement, too, and reiterated that he was, indeed, referring to an ongoing "coup" back in 2017 — albeit, a legal one.

President Trump pointed to Zaid's public comments from 2017 as evidence that the impeachment is "all a hoax" and "a scam."

On Thursday, Andrew Bakaj, another attorney who joins Zaid in representing the whistleblower, send a cease-and-desist order to White House counsel Pat Cipollone, warning the president to stop attacking his client.

"I am writing out of deep concern that your client, the President of the United States, is engaging in rhetoric and activity that places my client, the Intelligence Community Whistleblower, and their family in physical danger," Bajak wrote, according to CNN. "I am writing to respectfully request that you counsel your client on the legal and ethical peril in which he is placing himself should anyone be physically harmed as a result of his, or his surrogates', behavior."

Lol, so there it is, this “whistleblower’s” concerns over the phone call are going to run out of steam so they are going to Clintoncide him and blame it on Trump.

The media still not using the investigative journalism to explore the non suicide of Epstein. This might lead to more pedophilia and child porn in the government. We now know these folks are in fact part of the government Intel groups.

Um, maybe because America is and always has been a melting pot of immigrants from all parts of the world?

You gonna tell me Thibodeaux, Robicheau, Costa, Russo, and Angelo are suspicious too because they're not Anglican?
