There have been rumors circulating that attorney Lin Wood, who’s facing charges as a “co-conspirator” in the Georgia RICO case, has turned against President Trump. These rumors gained traction after an article was published by Rolling Stone, a formerly prestigious magazine now known for its questionable credibility.

Rolling Stone published the article, and after Lin Wood responded on Telegram, denouncing the story as pure rubbish and fake news, Rolling Stone sneakily incorporated Lin’s rebuke into the article, making it appear as if it were part of the original story. However, that was not the case. Take a look at what they did:

FORMER MAGA ATTORNEY Lin Wood is a witness for the state in Georgia’s election interference RICO case against the former president and 18 others. Wood, who retired from practicing law earlier this year to avoid disbarment, worked as a member of Trump’s legal team in the aftermath of the 2020 election and heavily promoted claims that the election had been rigged against the former president.

According to a Wednesday filing to the Fulton County Superior Court, which seeks a resolution to potential conflicts of interest between attorneys for Trump and several of his co-defendants, Wood is a witness for the prosecution.

“L. Lin Wood, Coreco Ja’Quan Perason, Vikki Townsend Consiglio, Gloria Kay Godwin, James Kenneth Carroll, and Carolyn Hall Fisher, are witnesses for the State in the present case. Sidney Katherine Powell and Cathleen Alston Latham are Defendants in the present case,” the filing reads.

Harry W. MacDougald, who is representing Jeff Clarke in the Georgia case “also previously represented and was co-counsel to L. Lin Wood in Wood v. Raffensperger.”

Prosecutors claim that “there is a significant risk that the Rules of Professional Conduct may be violated, which may compromise the rights of certain witnesses for the State of Georgia should those witnesses be cross-examined by their former attorneys.”

In a statement to Rolling Stone, Wood said that he had been informed he was “going to be subpoenaed as a witness,” but had no other information on the matter.

Hours later, Wood wrote on Telegram that there is “NO TRUTH” to accusations that he “flipped” on the former president. “I have no idea why I am being asked to testify at the trial. I have had no discussions with the DA’s office since I testified before the special grand jury several months ago,” he added.

Way down at the bottom of the article, in tiny font, they said they added an “update.”

More deceptive tactics from our fake news media. Meanwhile, Lin Wood vehemently refuted these reports on his Telegram channel. So, if you trust Wood, this appears to be another fake news report from Rolling Stone.

Online conservative influencer Heather Mullins posted screenshots from Lin’s Telegram. Here’s what she shared in her post on X:

When fake news “Rolling Stone” said Lin Wood turned on Trump, I was skeptical, because that paper is the absolute worst. They lie, they sympathize with terrorists, they’re NOT to be trusted. So I checked out Lin Woods telegram where he asserts he HASN’T turned on Trump.

I don’t know Lin. I’ve never met him. But I do know Rolling Stone is pure evil. And he maintains his innocence. So I will dig in more, follow this all closely, and let you know what I find out.

(He’s right though that Jesus is the way. And assuming he’s telling the truth, Isaiah 54:17 says no weapon formed against him shall prosper.)

Here’s a closeup of the screenshots from Lin’s Telegram:

In addition, Lin also posted this on his Telegram, where he calls out the “mockingbird media.”

In other Telegram posts, Wood posted screenshots of email responses he sent to the media, like this one.

In the end, time will distinguish truth from fake news and the reality of the situation will become evident. Meanwhile, all we can do is cautiously rely on Lin’s account and once again suspect that Rolling Stone is fabricating stories as they go — an unfortunate tendency they are known for and should be embarrassed by.
