From staff reports

Northern Beaufort County resident Lin Wood, a prominent attorney and Donald Trump supporter, has been asked to testify in the Fulton County, Ga. district attorney’s investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia, according to a Tuesday report in the New York Times (https://nyti.ms/3CK9NnJ).

The story was first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Wood indicated to the Times that he would testify.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Wood said. “I’ve got nothing to hide, so I’ll go down and talk to them.”

According to the Times story, prosecutors wrote that Wood gave a December 2021 interview to CNBC in which he told of hosting meetings “at a plantation in South Carolina for the purpose of exploring options to influence the results of the November 2020 elections in Georgia and elsewhere.”

Those meetings were allegedly attended by pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and other Trump campaign associates.

Wood was among the speakers at an Audit The SC 2020 Vote Rally at Olde Beaufort Golf Club on Aug. 30, 2021.
