If there is justice in the world, Alex Jones, the notorious conspiracy theorist on trial for the unscrupulous, disgusting lies he spread that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, and that the children and teachers who died that day were not actually murdered, will have to pay the full $150 million to families who bought him charges of defamation have demanded further justice. his voice away so that no one ever needs to hear from him again. And while we’ll have to wait and see if that justice will be served, the universe gave Jones a tiny bit of what he deserves on Wednesday, when not only did his lies explode in his face, but they did thanks to his own legal team.
Jones questions, Mark Bankston, the parents’ attorney argued that Jones had failed to comply with court orders to relay text messages and emails. Jones has previously claimed that he just couldn’t find one. Unfortunately, he clearly wasn’t anticipating what happened next.
Jones, did you know that your lawyers made a mistake 12 days ago and sent me a full digital copy of your entire cell phone with every text message you sent for the past two years, and when you were notified stated they took no steps to identify it as privileged or protected in any way and as of two days ago it fell free and clear in my possession and thats how i know you lied to me when you said you don’t text about Sandy Hook? that?” asked Bankston.
Jones, an unrepentant, despicable human being, continued to deny wrongdoing and replied, “If I was wrong, I was wrong.” To which Bankston looked back, “You know what perjury is, right?” (Meanwhile, the January 6 Committee is reportedly interested in obtaining Jones’ newly discovered texts).
In the course of the trial, in which the parents who sued Jones testified about the harassment and death threats they received from Jones’ rabid minions, the judge has had to reprimand the Infowars host for his inability to tell the truth. judge, Maya Guerra Gamble, took Jones to account for lying under oath, telling him, “This is not your show.”
While Jones admitted on Wednesday that the Sandy Hook massacre took place — “It’s 100% real,” he said, the host has declined to take responsibility for the impact of his lies, blaming them for “some form of psychosis in the past where I basically thought everything was staged.”
Despite the revelation that Infowars once made $800,000 in a single day, Jones claimed any financial fine over $2 million would destroy his company, which, true or not, appears to be a completely appropriate punishment.
