Has Trump denounced these comments yet? And if not why, why not. And I wonder if the VP has raised some concern about these remarks with his boss yet:
Lawyer Lin Wood is continuing his battle against the 2020 election results in support of Donald Trump and continues to stir controversy with his attacks on Vice President Mike Pence.
“If Pence is arrested, @SecPompeo 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,” he tweeted on Friday.
Pence is set to oversee the ratification of Electoral College votes on January 6, which will certify Democrat and President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Although Wood and others have attempted to pressure Pence to interfere, legal historian Jed Shugerman noted that the former Indiana governor does not have the authority to alter the outcome of the congressional session.
As reported by the Washington Examiner, Justice Department lawyers representing Pence on Thursday pushed for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas to throw out Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert’s lawsuit, which is allegedly part of a plan to overturn Biden’s victory. According to a tweet from Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy, Wood’s recent comments at the U.S. lawmaker are due to his role in opposing the lawsuit.
