Alex Jones pleaded for the prayers of his Infowars audience as he blasted his “damned” lawyers for accidentally handing over a copy of his mobile data.
The right-wing conspiracy theorist was stunned when lawyers for a Sandy Hook family suing him for $150 million revealed that his own legal team had mistakenly sent them the copy during the trial earlier this week.
Now, it appears the January 6 committee will also get a copy of his text messages and emails.
The plaintiffs’ lawyer, Mark Bankston, told the court in Texas that he has already contacted “multiple law enforcement agencies” to hand over the data and said he plans to do so.
When asked by a judge which agencies wanted the data, Mr. Bankston confirmed the January 6 panel, which is investigating the pro-Trump insurgency.
“I need your hope, your prayers,” Jones said on his show the day after the bombshell in court and as he awaited the jury’s verdict.
He also said the situation was “all part of my persecution” and that it was “a test” from God. He added, dramatically, that “its destruction will be spectacular.”
Jones went on to call the cellphone situation “unbelievably sick” as he complained about what happened to him during his cross-examination Thursday.
“It’s so unbelievably sick that I sit there and give the damn lawyers all the text messages … my lawyers give them six months worth of raw text messages,” he said.
He insisted, falsely, that he had complied with discovery, which the judge ruled he had not.
Jones told the court he had no text messages with Sandy Hook on his phone and does not use email.
“I looked through one of my phones and it didn’t have the Sandy Hook stuff on it,” he insisted. I just said, here you go, look it up and give it to the damn lawyers.
Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose six-year-old son Jesse was among the 20 schoolchildren and six adults killed in the mass attack, sued Jones and the media company over claims he made that the massacre was a “false flag”. . operation and that the victims did not actually exist.
Now, Jones denies he cares about Sandy Hook: “I don’t care about Sandy Hook. I don’t cover it unless they force us.”
