According to fresh court documents released on Wednesday, one of Donald Trump’s former attorneys has now reportedly turned on him in the Georgia indictment.
One of the first people to spread the idea that the 2020 presidential election had been rigged was Lin Wood, an attorney who first made a name for himself by representing Richard Jewel during the 1994 Olympic bombing case.
He was a member of the Trump legal team that attempted to challenge the election results.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis declined to press charges against Wood despite the Georgia grand jury’s recommendation to do so for his efforts to challenge the state’s election results.
Willis stated in a court document that Lin Wood is a witness for the State in the current case.
Wood is at least the second ally of Trump to turn against the the former President.
Yuscil Taveras, a Mar-a-Lago IT employee, consented to testify against Trump in the case involving the sensitive materials earlier this month.
Taveras first denied to the staff of special counsel Jack Smith that any discussions about the security footage that prosecutors had requested in 2022 as part of their investigation had taken place at Mar-a-Lago.
But as soon as Taveras received a new public attorney in July, he promptly changed his story and made a declaration accusing Trump and his two co-defendants, Walt Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira, of attempting to have the video deleted.
Then, in exchange for protection from charges, Taveras consented to provide evidence against Trump, Nauta, and De Oliveira.
Wood seems to have made a similar agreement.
In May, the Georgia Bar conducted a hearing to decide whether to suspend Wood.
Wood made the decision to renounce his law license in July rather than go through the disciplinary process, which would have probably led to his disbarment.
