Trump legal team denounces laywer Lin Wood after he said Mike Pence 'will face execution by firing squad' for 'treason'
A TRUMP campaign lawyer has distanced herself from remarks made by a prominent Georgia lawyer who said Vice President Mike Pence would face arrests for treason.
Jenna Ellis, a campaign attorney for President Trump who has been working after the election to overturn the results in key states like Georgia, has moved away from Georgia lawyer Lin Wood, who earlier this week said Pence would face the firing squad if he certifies Joe Biden's election win.
"To be clear: I do not support the statements from Attorney Lin Wood. I support the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution," a tweet from Ellis read on New Year's Day.
Ellis' tweet comes hours after Wood wrote that Pence should be first when the issue of treason comes up.
"When arrests for treason begin, put Chief Justice John Roberts, VP Mike Pence VP Mike Pence & Mitch McConnell at top of list," Woonn wrote in a since deleted tweet.
Following up on his comments, Wood explained why Pence should be jailed. "If Pence is arrested, Sec Pompeo will save the election. Pence will be in jail awaiting trial for treason. He will face execution by firing squad. He is a coward & will sing like a bird & confess ALL."
Wood has since deleted both tweets but has doubled down and called Pence a coward for going forward in the mostly ceremonial role of certifying President-elect Joe Biden's election results.
He even responded to Ellis on Twitter following her tweet.
"I support the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution too, Jenna. I was fighting for both 7 years before you were born. I fight for TRUTH too. Truth always prevails. You do support that statement, don't you, Jenna?" Wood tweeted.
In response, Ellis posted screenshots of Wood's "firing squad" tweet, adding "What about this statement is supporting the rule of law, the Constitution, or the truth?"
The tweets saying Pence should face the firing squad were part of a thread Wood had started in which he accused the Democratic party of conspiring with the Chinese Communist Party and other foreign nations to steal the 2020 election.
"We have also learned that the Globalists like George Soros & the Elitists like Bill Gates were involved. CIA too (no surprise – military industrial complex)," Wood tweeted.
"It all seemed so clear we overlooked one of the main participants in the theft of the election: THE REPUBLICANS," he continued.
Wood has been in the headlines recently this week for also claiming Jeffrey Epstein was still alive.
Wood's comments come as a small number of Republican Senators plan on objecting to the certification of the Electoral College votes on January 6, where Vice President Pence – as president of the Senate – will preside over the ceremonial process.
