Right-wing websites Breitbart News and the Gateway Pundit are at war with one another over Lin Wood, a lawyer and supporter of President Donald Trump.

Wood is a part of former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell’s legal team, which is filing lawsuits—rampant with misspellings—that accuse states won by President-elect Joe Biden of “voter fraud.”

Breitbart News and the Gateway Pundit seemingly became split on the controversial lawyer after Wood encouraged voters in Georgia not to vote in the U.S. Senate runoff races at a rally on Wednesday.

“Records: Lin Wood Has for Decades Voted for, Donated to Democrats Including Barack Obama and David Perdue’s 2014 Opponent,” Breitbart News headlined its Wednesday night story, taking aim at Wood.

The Gateway Pundit then accused Breitbart of “waging war” against the pro-Trump lawyer with its own story, titled “WTH? Breitbart Wages War Against Attorney Lin Wood — Who Is Defending President Trump Against Evil Marxist Horde — Lin Wood Responds.”

The site went on to accuse Breitbart of going on a “jihad” against Wood.

While the Trump campaign promoted Breitbart‘s story, one of Breitbart’s former editors called out its sudden shift in coverage. “It’s interesting how [Breitbart] promoted Lin Wood until they didn’t,” Raheem Kassam, the former Breitbart London editor, tweeted.

On Twitter, many liberal users reacted to the infighting by encouraging the two to duel it out.
