Mark Zaid, the attorney representing the whistleblower at the center of the Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry, has said CNN “will play a key role” in removing President Trump from office, and the liberal network has repeatedly given him a platform by booking him as a guest.

“I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president,” Zaid tweeted in July 2017, one month after he made an appearance on the network.

Zaid has appeared as a guest on CNN at least 11 times since the start of 2017, when he predicted a “coup" just months after Trump was sworn in.

Fox News searched the records of the five CNN programs for which transcripts are publicly available, “CNN Newsroom,” “Erin Burnett OutFront,” “AC 360,” “Early Start” and “Cuomo Prime Time,” and found 11 instances where Zaid appeared.
