L. Lin Wood, an attorney and QAnon supporter closely tied to Trump who recently thrust himself into the spotlight by pushing wild conspiracy theories about the election and filing frivolous lawsuits on the president's behalf, was permanently suspended by Twitter on Wednesday after suggesting that the mob takeover of the Capitol was staged.

After he was banned by Twitter, Wood took to Parler to again call for Pence to be executed by firing squad. "Get the firing squad ready," Wood wrote in a post on Parler. "Pence goes FIRST." Wood did not immediately respond to Forbes' request for comment Thursday.

Trump has ties to Wood: He met with the attorney in the Oval Office last year, and Wood told the New York Times last month he and the president had conversed about "fraud and illegality" in the election more than once. The president recently praised the attorney for doing a "good job" in Georgia as he tries to overturn the election.
