Government Secrets and How to Unearth the Truth, with Mark Zaid

The Garrulous Gavel

This time, we talk with attorney Mark Zaid, one of the country’s foremost national security and government secrecy attorneys.  Mark has built a fascinating practice around uncovering government secrets, and representing clients in the national security realm.  We chat with Mark about the Freedom of Information Act, the pre-publication review process, and other legal tools relating to government classified information.  He tells us about the FOIA case in which he sought revelation of the oldest classified documents still being kept secret by the U.S. government (you’ll have to listen to find out what they were!), and also about his numerous high-profile clients, who have included Alexander Vindman, former Defense Secretary Mark Esper, actor John Cryder, and the national security whistleblower whose actions led to the first Trump impeachment proceeding.  On a lighter note, we get garrulous with Mark about his passion for comic book collecting, and the controversy over “pressing” wrinkles out of old comic books.  A very fun and educational conversation!

'We Will Hunt You Down': Whistleblower's Lawyer from First Trump Impeachment Recounts Death Threats That Recently Sent a Man to Prison (Feat. Mark Zaid)

Objections: With Adam Klasfeld

In early June, a man who threatened the lawyer for the whistleblower associated with former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment was sentenced to one year in prison. National Security Attorney Mark Zaid remembers the incident well—because he was that lawyer. In the latest episode of Law&Crime's podcast "Objections: with Adam Klasfeld," Zaid recounts his phone ringing incessantly with messages from angry Trump supporters in late 2019."I received about half a dozen what I consider to be genuine death threats that crossed the line," Zaid reflects. "The first one I remember had nothing but the title in the email: 'a bullet in your head.' Okay, well, that one's different."One of those threats came from 54-year-old Brittan Atkinson, who served more than six months in pretrial detention when he was arrested last year. He will serve an additional five months in prison as a result of his recent sentence.When remembering that time period, Zaid says that the word that comes to mind is one that is perhaps the most "overused" of the Trump tenure."It was surreal," he says.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
