The whistleblower who claimed President Donald Trump pressed Ukraine’s leader to re-open an inquiry into Hunter Biden’s business dealings is represented by national security lawyer and Trump critic Mark Zaid, as well as Andrew Bakaj, who worked for Hillary Clinton and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

On Tuesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced that the whistleblower requested to speak to the committee.

The Chairman also confirmed that lawmakers are speaking to his or her counsel.

But questions were raised about the lawyers representing the whistleblower.

Former CIA official and founding/partnering manager of the Washington DC-based Compass Rose Legal Group, Andrew P. Bakaj, is one of the lawyers representing the whistleblower.

Bakaj's firm specializes in “adverse security clearance actions, whistleblower activities, and individuals, corporations, and organizations who are facing criminal and/or administrative investigations.”

Bakaj “left the CIA in 2014 after facing professional retaliation for trying to work with intelligence community whistleblowers,” and the Washington Times describes him as a “vindicated whistleblower," according to Yahoo News.

The website also details Bakaj’s previous work as a private practice attorney and notes his experience on Capitol Hill, working for Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, and the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY)

In Bakaj’s bio, it also highlights his work the Department of State, particularly at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine.

His bio reads as follows:

“While traveling on official business in L’viv, Ukraine, he was called upon to act as the American Official ‘on scene’ and assist in the U.S. Government’s response to one of the world’s deadliest air show disasters, which resulted in substantial American aid."

Rep. Mark Walker (D-NC) has viewed Bakaj’s past work Clinton as a red flag.

“Let me get this straight: the whistleblower (leaker) had no firsthand knowledge of the call and was just spreading a rumor?” he asked Tuesday.

“And now is being represented by an attorney who had to leave the CIA after a ‘whistleblower’ incident and has the names Schumer and Clinton on his resumé?” he continued.

“This seems about as reputable as the DNC-funded dossier or the latest Kavanaugh propaganda,” he added:

Bakaj is joined by frequent Trump critic Mark Zaid, who announced his role in joining the legal team over the weekend.

“BREAKING NEWS: I am now formally part of legal team, through @CompassRosePLLC & lead counsel @AndrewBakaj, rep’ing #natsec #whistleblower at center of current controversy,” Zaid announced.

“Neither law firm @MarkSZaidPC nor @BradMossEs involved so Brad can continue to comment on WB policy/law,” he added:

Moss’ called critics of the whistleblower “human excrement posing as human beings," on Friday.

“There is a special place in the fiery pits of Hell for ‘law and order’ conservatives who smear a whistleblower who made a protected disclosure through proper channels as outlined in federal law,” he declared.

“They are human excrement posing as human beings,” he added: 

Nancy Pelosi announced the formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

The announcement is a dramatic move for the Democrats.

Pelosi said, "the president must be held accountable" for the "betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections."
