Conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host Alex Jones sent child pornography to the lawyers for the families of the Sandy Hook tragedy, their lawyers said.
The law firm representing the families of the 2012 mass shooting, stated in court documents filed Monday they have contacted the FBI after discovering child porn in electronic files Jones recently turned over to the Sandy Hook families as a result of their lawsuit against him for calling the tragedy a hoax.
Jones publicly responded on a broadcast of his show that he is being framed by Chris Mattei, the lawyer for the Sandy Hook families and went on making what Mattei and his law firm, Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder claim are threats against them.
“You’re trying to set me up with child porn, I’ll get your ass,” Jones states on the broadcast. “One million dollars, you little gang members. One million dollars to put your head on a pike.” Jones then pounds a photograph of Mattei and goes into a rant at one point stating, “I’m gonna kill…”
Jones’s lawyers really should have vetted the information they were handing over, but maybe they couldn’t. Or maybe the files were hidden/encrypted and the Sandy Hook lawyers were just smarter.
Jones on his show today said:” “I pray for divine intervention against the powers of Satan. I literally would never have sex with children. I don’t like having sex with children. I would never have sex with children, I am not a Democrat, I am not a liberal.”
I hope he said more than that because I don’t read a denial there about possession of kiddie porn.
I can’t wait to hear Alex’s First Amendment argument.
This is pretty important and should not be ignored — Kiddie porn was in emails RECEIVED by Infowars, i.e., it could have been unsolicited, and Jones may be ignorant and/or negligent of its existence.
The phrasing plaintiffs use in the Alex Jones case: “The FBI advised counsel that its review located numerous additional illegal images, which had— Dell Cameron (@dellcam) June 17, 2019
apparently been sent to Infowars email addresses.”
FBI’s job is now to ascertain whether Jones knowingly possessed the images. pic.twitter.com/FG7dh9pbaG
The quote by Jones’ attorney characterizing his client’s remarks on InfoWars is amazing: “Mr. Jones was upset, he did not threaten Mr. Mattei. He spoke in a **compassionate fashion**” (emphasis mine)— Dell Cameron (@dellcam) June 17, 2019
Here’s what Jones’ said about Mattei, per plaintiff’s filing: pic.twitter.com/0irWSyE5s3
