Breitbart, Lin Wood square off over the news outlet’s claim that Wood is a wolf in sheep’s clothing

Georgia-based attorney Lin Wood could be a wolf in sheep’s clothing, according to a recent Breitbart story. And his recent rallying cry against voting in the upcoming January Senate runoff in his home state could be a ploy by Democrats to stop Republicans from voting in one the most important Senate races in modern political history.

Wood says Breitbart’s story is hogwash. Who knows. Politics is dirty but here’s both sides of the Wood versus Breitbart saga that has unraveled in the past few days.

First, Wood, along with former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, has been asking Georgia Republicans to stand against alleged voter fraud by telling them with urgency not vote in the Georgia Senate run-off election on January, 5. It is a position that runs contrary to President Donald Trump’s urging to get Georgians out to vote for GOP Sens. David Perdue, R-GA, and Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, in an effort to keep the Senate Republican controlled.

Guess what? It appears Wood may have ulterior motives if you read the Breitbart story. They say Wood’s strong past political leanings as a Democratic donor and the fact that he was a political opponent of Perdue in 2014 could be the reason he’s asking Georgians not to vote in the runoff. That’s exactly what the Democrats want, Breitbart says.

According to Breitbart there are no records of Lin Wood ever voting for President Donald Trump but there are records of him supporting Democrats, making donations and voting for President Barack Obama.

Wood could not be immediately reached for fair comment to respond to Breitbart’s story. I believe, however, that it is only right to hear Wood’s side of the story. Everyone has the right to change their mind and support whomever they choose in politics even if it is outside party lines.

But Wood did slam back against the accusations on Twitter. He posted Wednesday night saying “Breitbart is dishonest.”

“Historically, I am nonpartisan,” he said. “This year, I was partisan because I love @RealDonaldTrump.”

He said he donated $375,000 to a Trump PAC and gave his former opponent Perdue $25,000. He also noted that he gave Rep. Doug Collins $5,600.

From Breitbart:

While Wood made his comments purportedly as a self-described supporter of Trump, while donning a red “Make America Great Again” ball cap, the real story here is that Wood is by no means a Republican and there is no record in Georgia of him ever voting for President Trump—in 2016 or in 2020—in the Republican primaries. While Wood did vote in the 2020 and 2016 general elections in Georgia—there are no records in Georgia of him pulling a GOP primary ballot in 2016 or 2020, the two years President Trump was on the ticket. Ironically, in both the 2020 and 2016 general elections, state records show that Wood voted absentee—by mail—in Georgia, part of the same system he is now railing against.

In addition to Trump himself, Vice President Mike Pence is making a second trip to Georgia later this week to campaign for Loeffler and Perdue and the president’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr. has been vocal in his support for them as well.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
