Alex Jones Says the Secret Service Set Him and Trump Up to Take the Blame for Insurrection
Alex Jones had some relevancy at the beginning of Donald Trump’s presidency. Trump, of course, had appeared as a guest on InfoWars prior to becoming president. By the time Trump was out of office, though, Jones had largely been deplatformed.
That doesn’t mean, however, that Jones isn’t going to keep placing himself in the middle of big Washington DC scandals. In his latest rant, Jones claims that he and Trump were set up to take the fall for the Capitol insurrection.
The conspiracy theorist told his audience:
“Here’s the thing — I’ve been doing this so long, I just know what they’re going to do now. I just know. I mean, ask, how do you know? It’s called wisdom. It’s called knowledge. But as much knowledge as I have, I deferred my responsibility in my brain on the 6th, and I went and let Trump and the Secret Service be in charge, and the Secret Service, whoever was in command of it, set us up. And because I deferred to the president and deferred — the president should by asking, ‘Why was there not Secret Service? Why was there nobody at the Capitol? Why did I say Jones believes in peaceful protest and already hundreds” — because they set him up.'”
Jones continued, “So as much as I know — I was expecting a mass shooting or a bombing that day to blame us. They did have pipe bombs. But instead they just provocateured the siege, got what they wanted, had their victory. So as much as I know, I don’t know. But I do know about the enemy’s big moves, and I do understand it.”
