Alex Jones’ lawyers accidentally sent his text messages to the prosecution
InfoWars founder and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has finished giving evidence in the libel suit against him for his claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting massacre, which killed 20 children and six adults, was a hoax.

Both testified passionately when on the witness stand, with Ms Lewis able to confront Jones and look him straight in the eye as she talked about her son.
Jones faces potential damages of up to $150 million. The radio host faced uncomfortable cross-examination on Wednesday morning when much of what he testified was refuted by the plaintiff’s attorney and he was asked if he was aware of what was a perjury.

It also emerged that his own attorney had mistakenly shared all of Jones’ phone content with the opposition legal team – this would now be sought by the House Select Committee investigating the events surrounding the 6 January 2021 in Washington, DC, when Jones was in town.
The jury is deliberating.

“We still live in the conspiracy world of Alex Jones,” he says, in which the plaintiffs are weaponized, the jury has been handpicked, and the judge is part of the Deep State.
“That’s the spin Jones wants to put on this verdict.”
“They called them [the plaintiffs] liars for 10 years to make money, and they call them here liars to save money,” Mr. Farrar says of Jones’ defense argument to avoid a large financial compensation bill .

Martin Niemöller’s use of this poem naturally sparked a strong reaction online.
First they came looking for the socialists, and I didn’t say anything — because I wasn’t a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I didn’t say anything — because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t say anything, because I wasn’t Jewish.
Then they came for me and there was no one to speak for me.
