Roger Stone Requests Donations for Alex Jones Following (dollar)45.2M Verdict.
Following the (dollar)45.2 million defamation verdict against Infowars founder and host Alex Jones for promoting conspiracies regarding the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, conservative political consultant Roger Stone recently made a fundraising appeal on behalf of Jones.
In a video posted on Twitter by commentator Ron Filipkowski on Friday, Stone was heard on Infowars saying, “Alex Jones is a good and decent man.”
He is a God-fearing Christian, and right now he needs our help, Stone said, noting that donations could be made through the Infowars store.
According to The New York Times, Stone, a supporter of Donald Trump, frequently appeared as a guest on Infowars and is suspected of setting up an interview between Jones and Trump in December 2015.
Additionally, according to Insider, Sandy Hook family attorney Mark Bankston claimed that “intimate messages” between Stone and Jones were revealed by Jones’ phone record leak. No additional information about the texts was provided.
Stone made his comments following a Texas jury’s ruling on Friday in a defamation case that Jones must pay (dollar)45.2 million in punitive damages, (dollar)4.1 million in compensatory damages, and (dollar)1.5 million in fines to Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, the parents of a 6-year-old boy killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting, for making false claims that the incident was staged by “crisis actors.”
“Neil and Scarlett are ecstatic about the outcome and are eager to introduce Mr.
Jones’ funds effectively,” Bankston said in a statement that Newsweek was able to obtain.
In a statement obtained by Newsweek, Bankston said, “We put Jones’ money to good use.
Jones won’t have a restful night’s sleep, on the other hand.
It is evident that Mr. With punitive damages yet to be decided and numerous additional defamation lawsuits pending, Mr.
It’s finally Jones’ last performance on the American stage.
The mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012 resulted in the deaths of twenty children and six members of the school staff.
“We ask that you convey the message, which is very, very straightforward: stop Alex Jones.
On Friday, Wesley Todd Ball, an attorney for the parents, urged the jury to “quit monetizing falsehoods and lies.”
This is just a quick summary.
