Lin Wood may be punished after posting video of Michigan hearing

  • Lin Wood has vehemently argued fraud cost former President Donald Trump the 2020 election.
  • Several news media outlets noted Wood posted the video.

A prominent purveyor of election conspiracy theories may face additional punishment from a federal judge in Michigan after he shared a video recording of a portion of a court hearing on sanctions related to a debunked election fraud lawsuit. 

Lin Wood, an attorney who has vehemently argued fraud cost former President Donald Trump the 2020 election, was one of several attorneys summoned to a hearing Monday by U.S. District Judge Linda Parker. Sidney Powell and other Trump-supporting attorneys filed lawsuits in Michigan and elsewhere that relied on conspiracies and lies to allege election misconduct. 

While Parker previously dismissed the underlying lawsuit, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel and the city of Detroit are pursuing legal action against all of the attorneys involved in bringing the lawsuit.

In accordance with local court rules, all participants and viewers of the virtual proceeding were not allowed to digitally record any of the six-hour hearing. However, Wood appeared to post a recording of Powell speaking during the hearing to Telegram, a social media platform where Wood has more than 840,000 subscribers. 

Robert Davis, a Detroit activist involved in the underlying Powell lawsuit, filed a request Tuesday for Parker to hold Wood in criminal contempt.
