In the middle of the insurrection on Jan. 6, making a spectacle of himself as always, were InfoWars host Alex Jones and longtime Trump friend and political advisor Roger Stone. Jones is now on trial for lying for cash on his radio show off the pain of parents who lost elementary-age children to gun violence. Stone is fresh off a pardon by his buddy, Trump, after having lied to Congress and threatened to kill a witness against him as well as the witness’s service dog.
They’re not a nice couple of guys, so their comeuppance is all the more sweet.
Bankston just referred to Jones' "intimate messages to Roger Stone," which first, ew, and secondly, I think I hear the January 6 committee having a party from here

Jones was allegedly involved in organizing the Jan. 6 attack in coordination with some of the more militant white supremacist groups like the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers. Stone was involved as he always is in any ugly political moment (the Brooks Brothers’ riot was a brainchild of Roger Stone).
When Jones’ phone was accidentally sent to the lawyers for the Sandy Hook families in a civil case, his lawyers immediately tried to block it from going to anyone else. They lost that battle, all the benefit of the Jan. 6 committee, who will now have firsthand information about Jones’ and Stone’s involvement.
Alex Jones paid $500,000 to organize the insurrection on January 6th and he admits to getting his marching orders from Donald Trump. They literally sponsored a domestic terrorist attack on our nation's capital. Arrest them. pic.twitter.com/BW3R40TP4s

Mark Bankstone, lawyer for the Sandy Hook families, said that a lot of “intimate messages” between Jones and Stone in the phone’s memory, making it potentially a game-changer for the committee in their work investigating the insurrection.
Twitter was delighted to hear the news. Read some of their comments below:
