Lin Wood, a pro-Trump attorney behind multiple legal challenges seeking to throw out millions of legal votes to overturn the president’s loss, bizarrely alleged that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was involved with Jeffrey Epstein and the death of former Justice Antonin Scalia, The Daily Beast reports.
Wood, who along with former Trump attorney Sidney Powell has alleged without a shred of evidence that voting machines switched votes from President Donald Trump to President-elect Joe Biden and called for the arrest of top Republican Georgia officials, fired off the new conspiracy theories on Twitter this week after filing an emergency petition to halt Georgia’s January 5 election over false claims that it is “rigged.”
The unhinged Twitter rant marked another chapter in the downfall of the once-famed attorney who represented Richard Jewell, the security guard falsely accused of the Centennial Olympic Park Bombing in Atlanta in 1996, as well as the family of JonBenet Ramsey, former Rep. Gary Condit, and former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain.
Wood baselessly links Roberts to Scalia death:
Wood wrote on Twitter that Roberts was “recorded discussing Justice Scalia’s successor before date of his sudden death.”
“How did you know Scalia was going to die?” Wood wrote. “Are you a member of any club or cabal requiring minor children as initiation fee?”
Wood baselessly links Roberts to Epstein:
Wood followed up the bizarre conspiracy theory by attempting to link Roberts to Epstein’s sex trafficking ring.
“My information from reliable source is that Roberts arranged an illegal adoption of two young children from Wales through Jeffrey Epstein,” Wood tweeted. “I think we can all agree that Epstein knows pedophilia.”
“If only Jeffrey Epstein was still alive . . . Wouldn’t that be something?” he wrote.
Wood then suggested the fact that Roberts had not sued him for defamation suggests that he is right.
“I am fully aware of the onslaught of attacks being made against me based on my revelations about Chief Justice John Roberts. Before attacking me, maybe fair-minded people would first ask Roberts to tell the truth,” he later wrote. “Or ask Jeffrey Epstein. He is alive.”
