Whistleblower Attorney Mark Zaid Criticized for Poor Track-record

Mark Zaid Should Not Represent the White House Whistleblower
Carlos Hermosillo | @broofbros1

Mark Zaid, the DC lawyer who successfully sued Libya for $2.7 billion, is now the prime attorney for the Eric Ciaramella scandal. Zaid was named a top-rated lawyer from 2009-2019 by SuperLawyers for his work. Recently, he has defended whistleblowers, while books and other manuscripts go through the pre-publication and classification review process.

Mr. Zaid is behind the James Madison Project, which aims to “promote government accountability and the reduction of secrecy”. He also heads the Whistleblower Aid Organization, which John Kiriakou (the CIA officer who admitted to the public the horrific US torture scandal) has warned whistleblowers against. Many whistleblowers, however, that have dealt with Zaid, have expressed concerns over his work. Their opinions differ from the public view of the notorious lawyer.

It’s a pretty clear formula, that, if done right, is clearly profitable. Libertarianism has an analogous formula for producing a freer world. No, it isn’t Gary Johnson. It isn’t even Ron Paul: it’s WikiLeaks.
