If You Sue Trump, This DC Lawyer Will Help You For Free
Mark Zaid wants to help journalists file a national security-centered FOIA request against Trump so much he’ll do it for free:
Journalists: bring my law firm an interesting natsec FOIA request against Trump Admin and we’ll handle litigation pro bono (you cover costs)
— Mark S. Zaid (@MarkSZaidEsq) November 11, 2016
According to Zaid’s site, he’s an expert in defending “former, current, and prospective civilian federal employees, defense contractors, members of our active duty and reserve military, and journalists, particularly when they are threatened by the overshadowing spectre of national security.”
Of course, consider the risk. At this point, if you sue Trump, he may sue you back (and/or stick his tongue out at you)—or throw you in jail.
