What We Do Know and What We Don’t Know About Text Messages and Alex Jones, January 6
Alex Jones, the creator of Infowars, recently received two shocking revelations: first, the Sandy Hook victims’ families were suing him for defamation.
Jones was required to pay (dollars)4.1 million in damages to one of the families and (dollars)45.2 million in punitive damages, in addition to additional fines and fees that brought the total amount over (dollars)50 million.
A second setback for Jones was the discovery that Mark Bankston, the defense attorney, had accidentally received two years’ worth of Jones’ text messages.
According to Banton, the January 6 Select committee is allegedly getting ready to subpoena the messages, which are said to have been sent within the last two years.
Jones, who asserted that he invoked the Fifth Amendment “almost 100 times” in his testimony before the committee, may suffer as a result.
The conspiracy theorist and those who have gotten in touch with him may now face serious consequences as a result of the investigators’ request for his messages.
What possible repercussions might there be if this ends up in front of the select committee?
What We Are Aware Of
The subpoena issued by the January 6 Select Committee provides extensive information about the host of Infowars’ actions leading up to and during the Capitol riots.
In a letter from the chairman Bennie G. Thompson, Jones is credited with helping to “organize the January 6, 2021 Women for America First (‘WFAF’) rally held on the Ellipse in Washington, DC, including by facilitating a donor to provide what you characterized as “eighty percent” of the funding.”
It stated, “You were reportedly refused a speaking slot at the WFAF event but were offered a venue to, and did in fact, speak at, the January 5, 2021, rally on Freedom Plaza at the request of President Trump.”
Jones attended the Ellipse rally, and the White House informed him on January 3, 2021, “that after the Ellipse rally ended on January 6th, you were to lead a march to the Capitol, where President Trump would meet the group,” according to the letter, which is mentioned in the letter.
Jones asserted that during his committee interview, he invoked the fifth amendment “almost 100 times.”
I wanted to respond, so I said,
This serves as an overview.
Alex Jones took the 5th more than 100 times when he testified in front of the January 6 Cmte.
Imagines what’s in his text messages, which are likely to land in the hands of committee investigators & DOJ promptly.

I can’t be the only one who, when learning of the news of Alex Jones’s phone falling into the hands of the plaintiffs’ lawyers, wondered what we would have found out from the texts about January 6 that were wiped away.
