. . .Then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates refused to enforce the president’s executive action on immigration, which set off the rest of these nameless paper-pushers to do the same. We have allegations that the campaign was spied on by the CIA and FBI. Top Department of Justice officials discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump. Even liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz said stuff like this constituted nothing more than a coup attempt. This Trump-Ukraine episode we’re dealing with is all because some whistleblower filed a complaint. This person did not listen in on the July phone call, which is the basis for this allegation. It’s all secondhand information. This person is a CIA agent, a registered Democrat, had worked in the Obama White House as a National Security Council staffer, and worked with a 2020 Democratic candidate. So, excuse me if I’m more than skeptical of this person’s intentions. And now his lawyer has talked about impeachment and a coup since 2017 (via Fox News):
REVEALED: The whistleblower's lawyer has been working on orchestrating a "coup" and "impeachment" from virtually the moment Trump was sworn in as president.https://t.co/QT3rsNi4uR https://t.co/z1PClUVA6f

Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the whistleblower at the center of the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a “coup has started” and that “impeachment will follow ultimately.”
Then, in July 2017, Zaid remarked, “I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president.” Also that month, Zaid tweeted, “We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters.” . . .
The tweets, which came shortly after President Trump fired then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for failing to defend federal laws in court, are likely to fuel Republican concerns that the anonymous whistleblower’s complaint is tainted with partisanship.
“The whistleblower’s lawyer gave away the game,” the Trump campaign’s communications director, Tim Murtaugh. told Fox News. “It was always the Democrats’ plan to stage a coup and impeach President Trump and all they ever needed was the right scheme. They whiffed on Mueller so now they’ve settled on the perfectly fine Ukraine phone call. This proves this was orchestrated from the beginning.”
