Mark Zaid, the attorney for the Ukraine whistleblower at the center of impeachment proceedings against President Trump, responded to allegations by the sole Republican witness during Wednesday’s hearing that he’d been inundated with threats and demands that he be fired from George Washington University.
“I’d take demands to be fired over death threats any day,” Zaid tweeted Thursday in response to law professor Johnathan Turley.
“I receive constant harassing emails, letters, voicemails, to include death threats investigated by the FBI,” Zaid elaborated to Fox News on Thursday night.
Bradley Moss, an attorney at Zaid’s Washington D.C-based law firm, initially responded to Turley: “Want me to lay the lovely death threats I got after the president attacked Mark and the whistleblower at a rally?” Zaid followed up with his own tweet. He later joked, “Fortunately I can’t be fired. But I could be persuaded to fire Brad.”
