FORMER MAGA ATTORNEY Lin Wood is a witness for the state in Georgia’s election interference RICO case against the former president and 18 others. Wood, who retired from practicing law earlier this year to avoid disbarment, worked as a member of Trump’s legal team in the aftermath of the 2020 election and heavily promoted claims that the election had been rigged against the former president.
According to a Wednesday filing to the Fulton County Superior Court, which seeks a resolution to potential conflicts of interest between attorneys for Trump and several of his co-defendants, Wood is a witness for the prosecution.
“L. Lin Wood, Coreco Ja’Quan Perason, Vikki Townsend Consiglio, Gloria Kay Godwin, James Kenneth Carroll, and Carolyn Hall Fisher, are witnesses for the State in the present case. Sidney Katherine Powell and Cathleen Alston Latham are Defendants in the present case,” the filing reads.
Harry W. MacDougald, who is representing Jeff Clarke in the Georgia case “also previously represented and was co-counsel to L. Lin Wood in Wood v. Raffensperger.”
Prosecutors claim that “there is a significant risk that the Rules of Professional Conduct may be violated, which may compromise the rights of certain witnesses for the State of Georgia should those witnesses be cross-examined by their former attorneys.”
In a statement to Rolling Stone, Wood said that he had been informed he was “going to be subpoenaed as a witness,” but had no other information on the matter.
Hours later, Wood wrote on Telegram that there is “NO TRUTH” to accusations that he “flipped” on the former president. “I have no idea why I am being asked to testify at the trial. I have had no discussions with the DA’s office since I testified before the special grand jury several months ago,” he added.
Trump and his co-defendants have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. Rolling Stone reported on Wednesday that the growing pile of legal troubles faced by the former president has him raising concerns to his attorneys that he may actually end up in prison.
This article has been updated to include additional statements from Wood.
Lin Wood infiltrated the MAGA movement, and flipping on President Trump is the outcome most of us expected as it became clear long ago he was a plant. Now watch as other plants in the movement — particularly those who attack other patriots like General Flynn — flip on Trump too. That has always been the end goal. Many will and there will be people who flip that you never would’ve guessed. Brace yourselves — it’s going to be a rocky ride to victory! #LimpWood
In his defense, here’s Lin Wood’s statement about this latest event:
“I have been subjected to a barrage of Mockingbird media requests this morning to comment on stories claiming that I have “flipped” on President Trump because I have been subpoenaed as a witness in the Powell case.
There is NO TRUTH to those accusations.
I have no idea why I am being asked to testify at the trial. I have had no discussions with the DA’s office since I testified before the special grand jury several months ago.
Strikes me as yet another effort by the FAKE media to attack or smear me.
Fake news is fake news.
Always has been.
Always will be.
Enjoy your afternoon.
God bless each of you.
