When hiring a defense team for a whistleblower in a presidential impeachment case, it makes sense to assign the best and brightest. It would be unwise to hire a rabidly anti-Trump attorney who has a penchant for, say, young Disney actresses and dark palace intrigue tweets. Right?
They wouldn't thrust someone who brags on Twitter about gaining security clearances for his clients who were busted with child porn. Right?
And the CIA, party to the ruse, would be sure to avoid obvious meddling such as changing their definition of what constitutes a whistleblower the same month a complaint about a sitting president was filed. And they'd make sure the whistleblower isn't rabidly partisan. Nor would they use an actual CIA agent who worked as a Ukraine expert for Obama in the sunset of his administration. Right?
Because that would be as asinine as hiring activist attorney Debra Katz to represent Christine Blasey Ford. We know that the attempt to derail Brett Kavanaugh's SCOTUS nomination was founded on uncorroborated, decades-cold accusations made by a woman who had scrubbed her social media and coached a friend on how to beat a lie-detector test. Recently, Katz coughed up the canary and admitted that the whole case was designed to put an asterisk next to Kavanaugh's name. In the leftist fantasy world, such a mark might weigh on the outcome of an imagined Roe v. Wade-altering case. Or something.
It would be as monumentally transparent as having Tina Tchen, former assistant to Barack Obama, chief of staff for Michelle Obama, and “leading voice in the national conversation on fighting sexual harassment, gender equality and discrimination" seek to influence the Jussie Smollet case. But that's what happened. From behind the scenes, the Obamas sought to save Jussie, placing a proxy finger on the scales of justice.
We know what drives these people to craven, desperate acts, attempts to tear down the lives of good people. Thank goodness they're so lazy and sloppy.
So it should come as no surprise to anyone that with everything on the line, perhaps the credibility of the entire Democrat Party in this, their second attempt at nullifying an election, the masterminds behind the ginned-up impeachment effort hired attorney Mark Zaid.
Zaid has emerged as a maybe-pedo and for-sure-coup-supporter. The following four tweets will show the trajectory of his coming out party, and his brazen attempt at (standard Alinskyite) deflection. First, a "coup has started" tweet was unearthed, posted just days after Trump took office, followed by revelations about his fascination with Disney. Next, his sketchy web history was exposed. His weak retort? You guessed it, claims of death threats.
These Democrats just can't seem to find a lawyer to defend a good, honest, hearsay-inspired, Ukraine operative CIA agent "whistleblower" who doesn't reek of pedophilia and deep state chicanery.
The left's Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky dictum of "Accuse your opponent of what only you are doing, as you are doing it, to create confusion" is practically household knowledge now. It's surprising that Democratic Party leaders still maintain this course, as it is becoming less of a smoke screen and more of a decoder map for conservatives: what they said Trump did this week = what they did six months ago.
Heck, Hillary Clinton's latest joking-not-joking accusation that "aliens have seized" Rudy Giuliani's brain may well be a confession. Once Giuliani regularly loses control of his facial features and falls down, we'll bite. Until then, look for little green men in Hillary's orbit, not Rudy's.
Today, the Daily Caller reported that Zaid also bragged last year about wrangling security clearances for clients who "had child porn issues."
It's one thing to represent odious people. It can be, in a way, a solemn duty. We are guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution the right to a fair trial, and attorneys are hired or provided to defend those who have committed even the most heinous acts.
But this isn't that. This is a lawyer who has gone out of his way to get security clearances for individuals who have already been convicted on child pornography charges. And he's proud of it. We already had creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti...
...Zaid is the creepy child porn lawyer.
Without this piece of the puzzle, it was easier for the left to write off his solo Disney trips and obsession with preteen starlets as merely eccentric. Now it's clear that Zaid embraced the "do what you love and you'll never work" dictum.
