Trump Attacks Whistleblower Lawyer Who Said a ‘Coup’ Was Being Planned In 2017

President Trump launched a verbal tirade directed at whistleblower lawyer Mark Zaid, whose recently surfaced tweets from 2017 show him discussing a ‘coup.’

Zaid’s social media feed showed numerous posts that specifically discussed a coup and other devious secret plans to oust the recently elected President.

Trump began by quoting some of those messages at a rally in Louisiana.

“Democrats must be accountable for their hoaxes and their crimes,” he began.

Some of the tweets from Zaid are incredibly disconcerting. For a media that constantly mocks Trump for being paranoid about a coup, Zaid’s messages must certainly be eye-opening.

‘Coup Has Started’

Zaid’s tweets, which begin within days of Donald Trump’s inauguration, are damning evidence that he and his client have, and had, but one goal – to rid the nation of this President.

Responding to news that Trump had fired acting Attorney General at the time, Sally Yates, Zaid wrote that the “coup has started.”

He indicated that whatever had begun was simply the “first of many steps” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”

The whistleblower’s attorney in July of that year responded to a follower dismayed that the President was upsetting the status quo in the federal government.

“It’s very scary,” he wrote. “We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters.”

Trump Unloads

Speaking to a massive crowd of supporters Wednesday night, President Trump took the whistleblower’s lawyer to task for his threats – and obvious follow-up – to conduct a coup against him.

“I don’t know if you saw, I’m just coming off the plane, and they hand me – look at this character,” Trump said of Zaid. “They just hand me this story, ”Coup has started,’ whistleblower attorney said in 2017.'”

He then hammered the media for their role in the ‘coup.’

“That was a long time ago. It’s all a hoax. They say, January 2017 — a ‘coup has started,’ and the ‘impeachment will follow ultimately,'” Trump told the crowd. “It’s all a hoax. It’s a scam. And, you know who helps them? These people back here – the media.”

Trump went on to refer to the whistleblower’s attorney as a “sleazeball” and pointed directly at media row when referring to “the sleaze back there.”

The President proceeded to read another tweet from the summer of 2017 in which Zaid noted the media’s role in carrying out the ‘coup.’

“I predict CNN will play a key role in [Trump] not finishing out his full term as president,” he wrote.


Zaid has been working so feverishly to conceal the identity of the whistleblower, who the Political Insider has identified as CIA officer Eric Ciaramella, a registered Democrat who worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan, that he forgot to scrub his own Twitter timeline of evidence the fix has been in since Trump took office.
