It looks like protonmail uses QuoVadis cert, which might be questionable:

QuoVadis is managed by DarkMatter. A Reuter's article links DarkMatter to the United Arab Emirates government and surveillance operations. One such operation, called Karma, saw the team hack iPhones of "hundreds of activists, political leaders, and suspected terrorists" according to Reuters.

The EFF notes that DarkMatter's "business objectives directly depend on intercepting end-user traffic on behalf of snooping governments".

QuoVadis is owned by the Swiss company DigiCert, not DarkMatter. JFC you are stupid. --
