The attorney representing the Ukraine whistleblower tweeted about starting a “coup” against President Trump that would end with his impeachment almost as soon as he took the oath of office.
Mark S. Zaid wrote on his certified Twitter account on Jan. 30, 2017, Mr. Trump’s 11th day in power, that “#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately. #lawyers.”
Mr. Zaid’s tweet was in response to the firing of Sally Yates as acting attorney general for refusing to follow Mr. Trump’s orders on immigration policy. His use of the word “coup” mimics claims by Trump supporters — often mocked by liberals — that an elected president is being illegally overthrown.
According to a report on Fox News, Mr. Zaid also repeatedly crowed about how “we” and the media will force Mr. Trump from office.
President Trump promised during his campaign to drain the swamp that is Washington D.C. and it looks like they are not going down without a fight.
Of course he did. Everyone knows the coup started on November 9, 2016. Quit your fake sanctimony! Everybody who’s been watching this bullshit for three years sees what a farce it has been all along. https://t.co/B4EmKwQgGC— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) November 6, 2019
