Attorney Lin Wood, who filed multiple lawsuits seeking to overturn former President Donald Trump’s election loss, claimed on social media that he now believes that the “stop the steal” organization that challenged the loss is a “deep state” operation, Rolling Stone reports.
Wood has been on the defensive this month after Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen acquitted of murder in the killing of two racial justice protesters, said in an interview with Fox News that Wood, his former lawyer, had “taken advantage” of him for his own purposes.
Numerous Trump allies lit into Wood after the Rittenhouse interview.
Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called Wood a “horrible person.”
“Lin keeping Kyle in jail instead of bailing him out with ALL that money donated FOR Kyle is absolutely evil,” she tweeted. “Lin should go to jail for what he did to Kyle.”
Greene also accused Wood of grifting off of Trump and telling people to stay home ahead of Republican losses in Georgia’s Senate run-off elections in January.
Wood spins new conspiracy:
Wood has tried to post through the criticism, pushing countless conspiracy theories on his Telegram channel.
On Friday, Wood lashed out at former allies Sidney Powell and Michael Flynn.
“After doing the research and connecting the dots, I have reached the conclusion that the Stop the Steal organization is a Deep State organization to raise money for purposes other than to FIX 2020. … WATCH OUT for anyone affiliated with Stop the Steal. Every lie will be revealed,” Wood wrote.
Wood also posted a recording of a phone call he had with former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, who helped fund Powell’s efforts. Byrne told Wood that he dropped out of the operation after just 17 days after falling out with Powell and urging her to “get an auditor,” which she refused.
The two men mused that Powell had raised between $15 million and $70 million to fund her efforts.
Recording shows Flynn doubt Qanon:
Wood also posted a recording of a call he had with Flynn, on which the former national security adviser-turned-QAnon celebrity said he believes QAnon is “total nonsense.”
“I think it’s a disinformation campaign,” Flynn said on the call. “I think it’s a disinformation campaign that the CIA created. That’s what I believe. Now, I don’t know that for a fact, but that’s what I think it is. I think it’s a disinformation campaign.”
