Kraken Lawyer Lin Wood Calls For Executing Pence

The Daily Mail reports:

A conspiracy theory touting lawyer who has championed Donald Trump’s election fraud claims is stirring controversy by suggesting Vice President Mike Pence should “face execution by firing squad” for treason.

“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.

Lin Wood’s remarks on Friday have drawn a backlash with some questioning his mental health following his call for Pence’s arrest.

The Daily Beast reports:

Pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood’s prediction that Vice President Mike Pence could “face execution by firing squad” for “treason” is prompting Trumpworld to once again try and distance itself from the Atlanta attorney.

Jenna Ellis, an attorney for the Trump campaign, declared in a tweet late Friday: “I do not support the statements from Attorney Lin Wood. I support the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution.”

Separately, Nicholas Sandmann, the former Covington Catholic High School student who Wood represented in defamation suits against media outlets stemming from coverage of a confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial, linked to Wood’s Pence tweet with the comment, “I’m sorry but what the hell.”
