 The Families of Sandy Hook Received Emails Having Child Porn by Alex Jones

Alex Jones, the infamous conspiracy theorist, and Infowars founder handed over many emails containing child pornography to the lawyers for families of Sandy Hook school shooting sufferers who have filed a lawsuit against the far-right media figure.

The child pornography was found in 12 emails of more than 57,000 messages that were turned over by Jones to lawyers representing families of the school victims, Jones’ attorney Norm Pattis stated. One of the pictures was discovered when experts hired by attorneys for the Sandy Hook families began to examine the files, prompting them to contact the FBI, according to court reports.

On his radio show on Friday, Jones mentioned he had been the victim of a conspiracy that involved attorneys on the opposite side of the lawsuit planting child pornography in his emails.

“You’re trying to set me up with child porn!” Jones stated while announcing a $1 million reward to his viewers to find and prove the material had been set.

“Imma gets your ass,” Jones warned. “One million dollars, one million, you little gang member. One million dollars to put your head on a pike.”

Families of students killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in 2012 have sued Jones and Infowars for defamation over his repeated claims that the shooting was a trick. The lawsuit alleges that Jones and his guests continuously suggested the mass shooting had been faked and that relatives of the victims who spoke out about their loved ones’ deaths had been “crisis actors.”

Jones has said he believes the shooting occurred, but that it is his right to be able to question the events from the shooting.

“I am proud of questioning Sandy Hook,” Jones said during his show on Friday. “I was not the progenitor or the daddy of it. The public questioned it, so it was the tail wagging the dog.”

As part of the lawsuit, Jones had been ordered to turn over thousands of Infowars emails referencing the shooting as part of the lawsuit’s discovery process. The trove of data containing child pornography was handed over to the FBI, which reviewed the material and found additional images in the cache. According to court filings, FBI investigators told attorneys that the pornography — which would be a crime to possess — “had apparently been sent to Infowars email addresses.” Jones’ attorney, Pattis, told BuzzFeed News the emails had not been opened by anyone at Infowars, including Jones.
