On Tuesday, prominent lawyer Lin Wood swore under oath that he has evidence proving former Vice President Mike Pence is a “traitor” and said he had turned over the evidence to the U.S. Secret Service.
Wood said he included the evidence in a court filing in response to an attempt to bar him from representing Roslyn La Liberte, the plaintiff in a defamation lawsuit against MSNBC anchor Joy Reid. Reid’s attorney cited Wood’s statements about Pence and other high-profile figures as evidence of his misconduct, reported News Week.
Wood says Mike Pence is a ‘traitor’
“I have credible evidence to support the truth of my description of Former Vice-President Pence as a traitor,” Wood wrote in the filing, according to Law & Crime. “I have turned over whistleblower evidence to the United States Secret Service related to Former Vice-President Mike Pence and other high-ranking government officials.”
“If desired by this Court, I am prepared to file that evidence along with a considerable amount of evidence of election fraud,” Wood added. “I am not doing so at this time as I do not believe those issues are relevant to the present motion, which I believe is nothing more than an effort to smear my reputation and interfere with Plaintiff’s Constitutional right to counsel of her choice.”
Wood has been vocal about the 2020 election results. Before Jan. 6, when Congress gathered to certify the Electoral College vote, Wood had urged Pence and Chief Justice John Roberts to resign from their current positions. He warned that they could face arrest and execution for treason for refusing to join the legal efforts to overturn an alleged fraudulent presidential election.
“Mike Pence should resign immediately unless he publicly states that he will reject electors from states where fraud occurred,” Wood wrote in a tweet. “A man of God would NEVER certify a lie.”
Chief Justice Roberts isn’t worthy to interpret our Constitution’ said Wood
Referring to the chief justice, Wood said that Roberts, and Justice Stephen Breyer, should step down because they “are not worthy to interpret our Constitution,” which is “based on God’s laws.”
Wood then doubled down on his claims, warning that Pence, Roberts, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) could top a list of persons arrested for treason. He claims they are a part of the prominent participants in the theft of the presidential election, including George Soros, Bill Gates, and the CIA.
“Over time, we have learned that the Democrats were joined by the [Chinese Communist Party] CCP & other foreign countries,” he said. “These groups aspire to the goads of communism. A ruling elite & an oppressed class of people who exist to serve those in power. When arrests for treason begin, put Chief Justice John Roberts, VP Mike Pence, & Mitch McConnell at top of list.”
Mike Pence switching course
As the Senate president, Pence’s role over the Jan. 6 session was disputed as some believed it was merely ceremonial while others said Pence has more power. Pence had promised that Republicans and then-President Donald Trump “will have our day in Congress” but changed course the very next day.
The longtime defamation lawyer’s bold claims have landed him in hot water. The State Bar of Georgia has ordered Wood to undergo a mental health evaluation, which he refused to do. Wood was also banned by Twitter and was removed from the Carter Page case in Delaware.
