1/My client, a Navy veteran sexual assault victim, was subject of high level political smear attacks that led to firing of Deputy Secretary @DeptVetAffairs, who has now gone on record.

Now Congressman @DanCrenshawTX (R-TX) is slandering victim. Why?

2/@RepDanCrenshaw claims "she had filed six complaints while they served together in the Navy". FALSE.

Do you have proof to contrary Congressman? Let's hear it.

Why does it even matter if she filed even one complaint? What are you insinuating? That she files false reports?
3/That she exaggerates? That she creates situations as a victim? Is that what you are alleging about a sexual assault victim who actually works alongside of you in Congress? Do you really think your statement helps victims be comfortable in coming forward to report assaults?
4/PFC Vanessa Guillen was murdered earlier this year aft enduring sexual harassment. She told her family but was afraid to report to her unit.

Sexual assault victims should be encouraged to report allegations, do you not agree? Yet you seek to intimidate my client. Why?
END/You reportedly told @Newsweek: "If you really want to know what are the things I know about [the Navy veteran], then by all means."

By all means Sir, let's hear what you - as Member of Congress - have to say abt a sexual assault victim.

Let us know if you doubt her story.

No one should be treated like this, regardless of ideology. Culprits should be arrested & prosecuted.

But don't necessarily believe what could be propaganda by alt-right as other incidents allegedly involving BLM & Antifa (not an org) turned out to be right-wing agitators.
"In some cases, they have been found to purposefully sow confusion by impersonating left-wing activists in an effort to fuel movement toward civil war."

1/Several years ago I handled prepublication review case of former @CIA engineer who participated in #ProjectAzorian & he published "The CIA's Greatest Covert Operation: Inside the Daring Mission to Recover a Nuclear-Armed Soviet Sub".

Fascinating story.

END/ His book & story is now featured in documentary film released yesterday called "Neither Confirm Nor Deny".

I highly encourage everyone to watch. And @IntlSpyMuseum should consider airing the film in a future event!

If you are journalist who wants to #FOIA @USGSA for any documents relating to this debacle & expose potential partisanship of @GSAEmily, my law firm would be willing to represent you pro bono in court. You just pay filing fee.

Transparency is always important. Mark@MarkZaid.com

CNN and MSNBC call the election for Biden in light of PA but FOXNEWS is discussing polling. Given Fox aggressively called AZ ahead of everyone else, I wonder if they are purposefully holding back.
AP and CBS also called it. Where are you @FoxNews?

You called AZ but not PA?

Something is wrong with that.
ABC and NBC also. So basically EVERYONE but Fox. 🤣

Please see my statement about @DHSgov efforts to smear my name in order to deflect from responding to serious #whistleblower allegations.

I am not deterred.
1/Text is as follows:

In order to fully protect our whistleblower client Brian Murphy, it is necessary for the legal team to obtain security clearances at the TS/SCI level. I have held a USGOVT security clearance since 2002, and have received authorized access to classified ..
2/ ... information since the mid-1990s. Rather than timely process my clearance, DHS has now embarked upon an effort to publicly smear my good name with antiquated information. In 1999, I was publicly rebuked by a U.S. District Judge as part of a FOIA lawsuit against the CIA.

A case from my past 20 years ago, when I sued the entire Judiciary for now defunct APBnews.com, resurfaces as still relevant today. Per @joshgerstein & @politico.
