A lawyer who had filed several legal challenges to overturn Donald Trump’s loss of the election appeared to be referring to firearms and ammunition when he told his supporters to stock up on “supplies after the second amendment.”
“It is better to play it safe than to play it safe,” Mr. Lin tweeted Monday before adding, Your communities.
“Remember, we only have one president at a time. Our leader is @realDonaldTrump, not Biden. “
Responding to Mr. Wood’s tweet, Emerald Robinson, a reporter for right-wing pro-Trump site Newsmax, wrote, “Folks, when @LLinWood tells people to prepare, I listen.”
Mr Lin’s tweet came a few days after Trump supporters called for unrest in the US after the US Supreme Court ruled not to hear a lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who tried to overturn 62 votes in four battlefield states . according to Newsweek.
The lawsuit sought to get lawmakers in the Republican-led states of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin to vote their own voters instead of submitting the Democratic victories that their residents voted on.
Although President-elect Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election last month, Mr Trump has repeatedly falsely claimed that there was widespread electoral fraud and still has not admitted.
Mr Trump and his team have dismissed more than 50 legal challenges last month as he and his allies are still trying to dismiss the November 3 election results. There is no evidence to back up the claims.
Mr Wood has tried to assist President Trump in his litigation, falsely claiming that voting machines were tampered with to help Democrats win the election.
A Trump-appointed Georgia judge earlier this month dismissed a joint lawsuit filed by Mr. Wood and former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell, requesting testing of voting machines.
During a rally ahead of Georgia’s Senate runoff elections, the lawyer urged Republicans not to vote and again made false claims of fraud.
“You don’t deserve your vote,” he said at the rally on December 2nd. “Don’t give it to them. Why should you go back and, for God’s sake, vote on another rigged election? Fix it! You have to fix it! “Mr. Wood falsely claimed.
Gabriel Sterling, an electoral officer in Georgia, responded to Mr. Wood’s comments that the allegations were “Looney Tunes.”
After officials in Georgia received death threats following President Trump and his allies’ allegations of widespread election fraud, Sterling said advancing conspiracy theories could lead to violence.
“Someone is injured, someone is shot, someone is killed,” Sterling said at a news conference earlier this month.
On Monday, the U.S. electoral college confirmed Mr. Biden as the winner of the presidential election with 306 votes to Mr. Trump’s 232.
After confirming his victory, Mr. Biden said it was time to “turn the page, as we have done in our entire history, to unite to heal”.
