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.

Analysts say President Joe Biden is unlikely to “prompt dramatic sanctions action on Iran’s oil exports” due to “worries about boosting oil prices and angering top buyer China” according to Reuters.

Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, House Republican Representative Steve Scalise, said the administration had made it easier for Iran to sell its oil, generating revenues that were being used to “go fund terrorist activity.”

The Biden administration has maintained for months that among its primary goals is to keep the Gaza conflict between terror group Hamas and Israel from turning into a wider regional war. However, House Republican leaders accused President Joe Biden of failing to enforce existing measures and said they would take up this week a series of bills to sharpen sanctions on Iran.

Kimberly Donovan, a sanctions and anti-money laundering expert at the Atlantic Council, said that oil-related sanctions have not been strictly enforced in the past couple of years.

“I would not expect the administration to tighten enforcement in response to Iran’s missile and drone attacks against Israel over the weekend, mainly for concerns (that) could lead to increases in oil prices,” she said.

“The price of oil and ultimately the prices of gas at the pump become critical during an election year.”
