Trump launches 'despicable' last-minute attack on Social Security

Lin Wood, a QAnon backing attorney for the Trump campaign, tweeted a firestorm of tall allegations attacking U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts for allegedly conspiring to have President Donald Trump voted out of office.

On Thursday, Dec. 18, Wood took to Twitter with details about an alleged call that took place sometime in August. According to Wood, Roberts and Justice Stephen Breyer discussed ways to have Trump voted out, reports Law & Crime.

"In discussing @realDonaldTrump in phone conversation in 8/19, Justice John Roberts stated that he would make sure 'the mother f#*ker would never be re-elected," the tweet said. "Roberts engaged in phone conversations with Justice Stephen Breyer discussing how to work to get Trump voted out."

To make matters worse, Wood's allegations are no different than any of the Trump campaign's other post-election claims and conspiracy theories as he had no evidence or proof to back the tweet. However, he did attempt to do damage control by claiming that there is documentation "in the hands of several third parties" to support his claim even though he did not attempt to provide the information.

"The documentation of my claims about Justices Roberts & Breyer has been placed in hands of several third parties," Wood claimed. "When one cannot attack message, all too often messenger is attacked," Wood said. "But TRUTH cannot be denied. It cannot be destroyed. I have made sure of that TRUTH."

At one point during his rant, Wood even attempted to accuse Roberts of being involved in Jeffrey Epstein's entanglements although the chief justice has already addressed this allegation.

In the wake of Wood's latest Twitter storm, legal experts and law observers expressed deep concern about his words describing his defamatory remarks as an ethical violation.

Jan Wolfe, a lawyer and legal affairs journalist tweeted, "If I wanted to win a pending case, I wouldn't call the judge a corrupt sexual predator. But that's just me. And, yes, defaming Chief Justice Roberts is an ethical violation, if you were wondering."

So far, the Trump campaign has had more than 50 post-election lawsuits tossed out of courts across the country which suggests that maybe the Supreme Court is not the problem but rather. Trump's baseless election fraud claims.
