On Thursday, it was reported that former legal partners of pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood claimed they have a tape recording of the attorney suggesting he was the second coming of Jesus Christ and even admitting to assaulting one of them in an elevator.
The allegations appear in filings for a lawsuit by former partners Nicole Wade, Jonathan Grunberg, and Taylor Wilson, which accuses Wood of fraud and breach of contract for agreeing to an undisclosed settlement when they left the firm over his “erratic, hostile, abusive, and threatening” behavior, then not following through with the agreed payment.
The partners claim that they have taped Wood saying, “I might actually be Christ coming back for a second time in the form of an imperfect man, elevating Christ consciousness. That cause you to have a little bit of a chill? Who would be more eloquent to say what the will of God is, the belief of God in me … I represent Moses. I represent Ananias the believer. I’m like the power of King David. Now look you all, I told you I was going to pray tonight to my God, not to myself, because to me there’s God and there’s me.”
According to the partners, Wood also admitted on tape to an incident in which he physically assaulted Grunberg in a hotel elevator during an out-of-town deposition for “essentially no reason whatsoever.”
Wood has been working to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and has failed completely.
