Alex Jones acquired the shock of his life on Wednesday whereas he was being cross-examined in his ongoing defamation trial in Texas.
As you may know, the controversial media exec and conspiracy theory-promoting right-wing radio host has been sued by a few of the dad and mom of the kids who died in the 2012 Sandy Hook faculty capturing tragedy. This week he’s on the stand, and on Wednesday, he confronted an unbelievable onslaught introduced on by a totally sudden and horrifically damaging mistake by his very personal authorized group.
Whereas Jones was being questioned by Mark Bankston (pictured above, proper), a lawyer for the plaintiffs within the case, the lawyer produced a textual content message Alex had despatched in regards to the Sandy Hook faculty capturing and associated conspiracy theories. The lawyer defined to Jones that the message got here straight from the radio host’s personal mobile phone — and he additionally defined to Jones how he acquired it within the first place!
As Alex sat along with his mouth agape, Bankston went into the reason: Jones’ attorneys tousled and mistakenly despatched him the ENTIRE contents of his mobile phone lower than two weeks in the past. Then, when Bankston’s group notified their opposing counsel of the error, Jones’ legal professionals did… nothing?!?!?! And so Bankston was ready to make use of the cellphone as proof in courtroom on Wednesday!
“Twelve days in the past, your attorneys tousled and despatched me a complete digital copy of your complete cellphone with each textual content message that you simply’ve despatched for the previous two years — and when knowledgeable, didn’t take any steps to determine it as privileged or protected.”
That’s crucial as a result of, in a pre-trial deposition on the lawsuit, Jones testified underneath oath that he personally searched his cellphone beforehand for textual content messages about Sandy Hook. Whereas being deposed on the time, he informed legal professionals that he couldn’t discover any textual content messages about Sandy Hook.
However now we all know unquestionably that was a lie. As a result of Bankston proved it in courtroom with Jones’ personal cellphone data!!
Bankston went in on the assault along with his cross-examination:
“That’s how I do know you lied to me whenever you mentioned you didn’t have any textual content messages about Sandy Hook. Do you know this?”
Jones, who sputtered and stuttered about giving his cellphone over to his lawyer, responded:
“I assume that is your Perry Mason second.”
However the TV reference wasn’t going to fly.
“You already know what perjury is, proper?”
Jones answered again:
“Sure, I do. I imply, I’m not a tech man.”
Not nice, Alex! Nice for the remainder of us, although. F**ok this man!

That is now the second day Jones has been on the stand within the ongoing defamation trial.
He spent a great deal of his testimony whining about being “typecast” as a conspiracy theorist concerning his obvious views on that tragic capturing. He says now that the capturing was “100% actual,” and it did truly occur (no s**t, Sherlock). However that’s not sufficient contemplating the harm his alleged defamation did to these grieving households for years and years. To not point out the way it helped form the political s**tshow we’re all in now!
Oh, properly. This cellphone f**k-up couldn’t occur to a worse man!
It’s particularly humorous as a result of that is the sort of factor Alex Jones would most likely say his group did this on goal if it was taking place to anybody else! You already know, tinfoil hat and all… THE IRONY.
Reactions, Perezcious readers??
