Following attack from Tucker Carlson, Capitol police officer received “vile hate messages, racist attacks” according to his attorney

Mark Zaid: “It is not a coincidence that those attacks started after Tucker Carlson made his comments and I attribute those directly to Carlson”

Jul 22, 2021: Mark Zaid, attorney for Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn, responds to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s attack on Dunn and speaks to how these kind of statements revive the pain for Capitol Police officers. Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele joins in the conversation. 

MARK ZAID (GUEST): It was not until last night, after Tucker Carlson made that despicable monologue, that he started receiving the most vile hate messages, racist attacks through social media. It is not a coincidence that those attacks started after Tucker Carlson made his comments and I attribute those directly to Carlson just like when I experienced death threats when I was representing the IC whistleblower during the first impeachment hearings. Those death threats started after right-wing social media and talking heads like Carlson started speaking out and naming us publicly.
