The so-called whistleblower’s attorney at the center of an escalating scandal regarding his “coup” comments in January 2017 defended his remarks Thursday; saying he was simply referring to a “lawful process.”

“Those tweets were reflective and repeated the sentiments of millions of people,” Zaid said. “I was referring to a completely lawful process of what President Trump would likely face as a result of stepping over the line, and that particularly whatever would happen would come about as a result of lawyers. The coup comment referred to those working inside the Administration who were already, just a week into office, standing up to him to enforce recognized rules of law.“

“Based on the information released last night about the Fake Whistleblowers attorney, the Impeachment Hoax should be ended IMMEDIATELY! There is no case, except against the other side!” posted the President on social media.

A series of public tweets from the so-called whistleblower’s attorney is shedding new light on his blatant anti-Trump bias this week; revealing he called for a “coup” against President Trump in January 2017.

“#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately. #lawyers,” posted Mark Zaid.

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