Pro-Trump Lawyer Claims Mike Pence Faces Arrest, Execution By Firing Squad If He Doesn’t Overturn Election For Trump

Pro-Trump attorney L. Lin Wood has made some wacky claims about the 2020 presidential election, but he outdid himself on Friday when he tweeted that Vice President Mike Pence could face arrest and execution by firing squad for treason if he doesn’t declare Donald Trump the winner of the electoral college.

Wood, who has floated the theory that Pence has the sole power to overturn the will of the people, tweeted that Republicans shared responsibility for the “theft of the election,” and there would be “arrests for treason.”

He also claimed that if Pence is arrested, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would reverse the results of the Electoral College.

Earlier this week, Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) and others filed a lawsuit seeking to compel Pence to block the election of Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as Vice President when Congress meets to certify the vote of the Electoral College on Tuesday, Jan. 6 on the argument that several states followed unconstitutional processes of choosing electors.

In a filing opposing the lawsuit, Pence argued that he does not have that discretion, and that the issue is up to Congress.
