President Donald Trump’s legal team added a top attorney who believes the 2020 presidential election represents a “constitutional crisis” for the nation.
L. Lin Wood, the lawyer who successfully represented teen Nicholas Sandmann in a defamation suit against The Washington Post and CNN, has joined the president’s efforts to challenge attempts by Democrats and the media to steal the election for Joe Biden.
Wood spoke about why he decided to help the president during an election update event in Georgia over the weekend, telling a crowd of Trump supporters that the “country is under attack” and that Democrats and their allies are “trying to take away your rights.”
“I was sitting around Tuesday night watching the election returns, I’ve loved politics all my life, since I first voted in 1972. And I saw what I assumed was going to happen. I saw President Trump building up what I believed was going to be almost an historic landslide victory,” Wood said at the press conference in Atlanta, where he is based.
“Then all the sudden every network, including Fox News, started doing what they do best – they started lying to the American public. And they took a victory from Donald Trump and they called it a lie,” Wood told the crowd who also heard from Donald Trump Jr., Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel and Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones.
“They took a defeat from Joe Biden and lied and said he won. And they sent you to bed, turning off the count of the vote so you could wake up the next morning like I did and go ‘What happened?’” he continued.
“When I was asked by President Trump to help him in Georgia and perhaps other places around this country, I said ‘yeah’…” Wood said. “I said yes because there is a cloud over this country. And if we don’t get it right and we don’t figure out what happened that night, that cloud is going to get darker and darker until it turns into a storm cloud and we’re going to lose our freedom. So it is time to fight back…”
Wood, who’s also representing Kyle Rittenhouse, who was charged in the Kenosha, Wisconsin, shootings, called for “patience” in a tweet on Monday, noting that “when something does not make sense, it is almost always proven to be false.”

An orderly process requires that a determination of truth or falsity wait until all the facts are known.

Wood cautioned that “we’re going to lose our constitutional rights” if the election problems aren’t investigated and resolved.
He added that in “43 years of practicing law I never dreamed the day would come where I would be in the United States of America and there would be censorship. If they take away your right to free speech what are they going to take away next?”
“Let’s find out what happened. This is about truth versus lies,” Wood said as Democrats celebrated a Biden victory that was only prematurely called by the media.
“If you don’t think this was planned, enjoy losing your freedom under the Kamala Harris Administration. And she’s not going to be running this country. There are people who are going to be running this country who are rich, they’re globalists, some don’t even live here, a lot of them are involved with foreign countries,” Wood warned.
In a tweet over the weekend, Wood declared that the “coup will fail.”
Be patient. Wait. It will take time.
The key is to get it right.
Biden has not been elected President by We The People.
Media lies do not elect The President.
Every lie will be revealed.
The coup will fail.

“It’s time to tell the truth and be truthful and face the truth,” he told the crowd in Atlanta.
“This country is under attack. This was nothing more than a revolution. They’re trying to take away your rights. They’re trying to take away your Constitution. They’re trying to take away ultimately your freedom. Don’t let them do it. Donald Trump is for the people that’s why the people voted for him,” Wood added.
The star attorney also called on Republicans to make their voices heard in supporting the president. GOP lawmakers and others began to step up in backing Trump after many of them had remained noticeably silent amid the fallout from the election. Many continue to appear to be distancing themselves while some have even urged him to concede.

“I’d like to see the Republicans stand up for this President. I’ve watched him for 4 years and he’s been out there fighting for the people and he’s almost always been fighting by himself,” Wood said. “It’s time for us to fight for Donald Trump.”
