Jan. 6 Committee Subpoenas Roger Stone, Alex Jones

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot has subpoenaed former President Donald Trump’s ally Roger Stone and far-right radio host Alex Jones.

“The Select Committee is seeking information about the rallies and subsequent march to the Capitol that escalated into a violent mob attacking the Capitol and threatening our democracy,” Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said in the statement. “We need to know who organized, planned, paid for, and received funds related to those events, as well as what communications organizers had with officials in the White House and Congress.”

“We believe the witnesses we subpoenaed today have relevant information and we expect them to cooperate fully with our effort to get answers for the American people about the violence of January 6th,” he added.

Stone gave speeches at rallies on Jan. 5 and 6 and reportedly used members of the militia group the Oath Keepers as personal security.

Jones also spoke at both rallies, claimed to have provided “eight percent” of the rally’s funding via a donation he facilitated.

Alex Jones found guilty by default in Sandy Hook defamation lawsuits

A Connecticut superior court found far-right broadcaster Alex Jones guilty in a defamation case brought by the families of eight people killed in a 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The court ruled that he was liable by default because Jones failed to comply with his order to produce documents, including financial records.

The latest ruling joins three previous rulings in Texas to grant the families of 10 Sandy Hook victims four successful defamation lawsuits against Jones.

Jones repeatedly spread the conspiracy theory that the mass shooting that left 20 first-graders and six educators dead was a government-led plot to confiscate Americans’ firearms, and that the victims’ families were paid “actors.”

The families alleged that Jones had profited off of spreading the misinformation about the shooting.

The law firm representing the families issued a statement on Monday.

“As the Court noted, Alex Jones and his companies have deliberately concealed evidence of the relationship between what they publish and how they make money,” the lawyers said. “Mr. Jones was given every opportunity to comply but, when he chose instead to withhold evidence for more than two years, the Court was left with no choice but to rule as it did today. While today’s ruling is a legal victory, the battle to shed light on how deeply Mr. Jones has harmed these families continues.”

Jones also released a statement through his Infowars website, lamenting the judge’s ruling as a blow to the First Amendment.

“Nothing less than the fundamental right to speak freely is at stake in these cases,” the statement read. “It is not overstatement to say the first amendment was crucified today.”

Juries in both Connecticut and Texas will determine how much the families should receive in damages. Those trials are scheduled for next year.

Alex Jones found liable for false claims about Sandy Hook shooting

A judge determined that radio host Alex Jones is liable in two lawsuits for damages stemming from his claims about the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012, court documents confirm.

Judge Maya Guerra Gamble issued default judgments against Jones and his website Infowars for failing to comply with court orders to provide information for the lawsuits brought against him by the parents of two children killed in the shooting.

The ruling effectively means that Jones lost the case by default, but a jury will still decide the monetary amount he will owe to the plaintiffs.

“Mr. Jones was given ample opportunity to take these lawsuits seriously and obey the rule of law,” said Mark Bankston, an attorney for the parents. “He chose not to do so, and now he will face the consequences for that decision.” 

A lawyer for Jones and his outlet issued a statement on the ruling.

“We are distressed by what we regard as a blatant abuse of discretion by the trial court,” the statement read.
