Right-wing broadcaster Alex Jones (who believes that he is in a fight with the literal Devil) is once again, in legal trouble.
Today, the January 6th Commission has issued Jones a subpoena. A letter from the Commission, signed by Congressman Bennie Thompson has called on Jones to provide documents pertaining to his part in the organization of the rally and the subsequent march that he participated in towards the Capitol. The Commission cites his “facilitating a donation to provide what he described as “eighty percent” of the funding.”
Along with the radio host, Roger Stone and Stop the Steal’s Dustin Stockton who administered the massive Facebook page for the organization have also been subpoenaed.
Jones used his megaphone and live broadcast to call on people during the allegedly impromptu Jan 6th march to head in the direction of InfoWars guest, Ali Alexander’s permitted rally location on the East side of the Capitol. The Commission does not seem to be claiming that he was part of a planned attack on the Capitol but was part of the larger move on the day to march to the building. On January 6th, the broadcaster repeatedly told his listeners that Trump personally ordered him to lead such a march.
The subpoena sites multiple instances on his broadcasts in the leadup to January 6th that the rally was going to be something bigger than a goodbye to the one-term President. The rallying cry of 1776 Former President Trump tweeted out “Big Protest on January 6th, Be there will be wild!” – in response, the loudest cheerleader for MAGA responded:
Roger Stone, the creator of the original “Stop the Steal” in 2020 and mentor to already subpoenaed Ali Alexander has also himself been today called to testify and provide documents. With the previous subpoena of Ali Alexander and Nathan Martin much of the Stop the Steal leadership has now been called.
Stone and Jones have a record of not complying with subpoenas and Alexander has claimed on his private Telegram channel that he will not participate with the Commission.
The five people subpoenaed by the Jan 6th Commission on Nov. 22nd were:
Jones, once a radio show host with millions of listeners and dollars has had a bad couple of weeks. His refusal to provide the requested information to the multiple lawsuits against him by the parents of the murdered Sandy Hook children saw default judgments in Texas and Connecticut. He’s currently attempting to raise $2 million to save his disinformation empire, he’s even talking about selling his tank.
