On Wednesday, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis revealed that pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood is a “witness for the state” in the Georgia election case.
According to CNN, the reference to Wood was buried in a new court filing by the DA’s office that raised potential conflicts of interest for six defense attorneys because they previously represented witnesses or other defendants in related proceedings.
Wood was previously subpoenaed by prosecutors in the Georgia probe but his status as a witness for the state was not previously known.
“Lin Wood is a witness for the State in the present case,” the court filing says.
As a witness, Wood could be subject to cross-examination by his former attorney and co-counsel who is now representing former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark in the Georgia RICO probe – creating a potential conflict of interest.
Willis, a prominent MAGA supporter, filed a series of lawsuits after then-President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election which ultimately lost in court.
