Some of President Trump’s strongest allies are turning on Lin Wood after the pro-Trump attorney posted a death threat against Vice President Mike Pence the day after deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol building.
Wood told his followers on Parler, “Get the firing squads ready. Pence goes FIRST.” Wood also called for the arrest of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
Mediaite’s Zachary Petrizzo reports:
Early Friday morning Wood also claimed that Ashli Babbitt, the woman shot dead by Capitol Police on Wednesday, is still “alive.”
Babbitt’s husband, Aaron Babbitt, confirmed to San Diego’s KUSI News on Wednesday night she was the woman who had been shot and killed during the Capitol riot.
It’s unclear whether Wood deleted the posts or Parler removed them. Neither a Parler communications representative nor CEO John Matze responded to multiple requests for comment on the matter.
