A Fox News article from November 13th revealed that whistleblower attorney Mark Zaid tweeted about the beginning of a “coup” against President Trump in 2017. This caused the president to unload on Zaid at a campaign rally in Louisiana. The article reported that Zaid has long called for Trump’s impeachment, saying “we will get rid of him” in 2017.
Now representing the “intelligence community whistleblower who is at the center of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against the president,” Zaid alleged that Trump “improperly threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine for political reasons” earlier this year. In addition to this, he predicted that CNN will play an important role in Trump not finishing his full presidential term.
The lawyer behind the so-called whistleblower has been calling for a “coup” against the President of the United States since January 2017.
We should take him at his word that this is a coordinated, premeditated plot to overturn the election.https://t.co/RejktfqU4s

Zaid assured his Twitter followers by saying that “as one falls, two more will take their place.” This refers to Trump administration employees defying the White House. Trump, on the other hand, says Zaid is a disgrace. He suggested that Zaid should be sued for treason. “So, the whistleblower is a disgrace to our country. And the whistleblower, because of that, should be revealed. And his lawyer, who said the worst things possibly two years ago, he should be sued and maybe for treason. Maybe for treason, but he should be sued. His lawyer is a disgrace,” said Trump. Zaid, however, said that the tweets “were reflective and repeated the sentiments of millions of people.”

According to Washington Examiner, the whistleblower is alleged to be Eric Ciaramella, a career CIA analyst. Ciaramella was Ukraine director on the National Security Council during the end of the Obama administration. He remained in that position during the early years of the Trump administration.
