Pro-Trump Attorney Lin Wood tweeted Friday that Vice President Mike Pence could face arrest for treason and could even face execution by firing squad.
“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 as he continued his battle against the 2020 election results in support of Donald Trump.
According to Wood, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is a “truth-giver” on the side of Trump.
“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo @SecPompeo is a truth-giver. When Sec. Pompeo speaks, listen carefully.” he tweeted shortly after his call for Pence’s arrest.

Wood appeared to be referring to a theory that Pence has the power to block the election of Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as Vice President when Congress meets to certify the vote of the Electoral College on Tuesday, Jan. 6.
Earlier this week, Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) and others filed a lawsuit seeking to compel Pence to intervene in the Electoral College certification, on the argument that several states followed unconstitutional processes of choosing electors.
HuffPost White House correspondent S.V. Dáte sounded the alarm on Wood’s comments and his proximity to the president and his administration.
“Joking aside, this Lin Wood guy is immensely popular among the Q-anon cult,” he tweeted. “What’s more, he’s tight with Sidney Powell, who has BEEN IN WEST WING MEETINGS WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.”
Wood previously suggested that Pence is Trump’s enemy and shared a blog that suggested the politician is planning to make a play for the White House by removing the head of state from power using the 25h Amendment.
