Report: The FBI and DOJ Are Investigating Alex Jones and Roger Stone For Their Roles in Insurrection
Roger Stone’s friendship with Donald Trump paid off in a big way in 2020. The ex-president pardoned Stone just before he was set to begin a multi-year prison sentence.
Like Stone, Alex Jones joined Donald Trump in his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Jones, at one point, claimed that the White House asked him to “lead” the January 6th protest. According to the Washington Post, both the FBI and DOJ are looking the actions of the two men.
Spencer Hsu and Devlin Barrett write:
“The Justice Department and FBI are investigating whether high-profile right-wing figures — including Roger Stone and Alex Jones — may have played a role in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach as part of a broader look into the mind-set of those who committed violence and their apparent paths to radicalization, according to people familiar with the investigation.”
On January 1st, Jones told listeners of his internet show, “Roger Stone spent some substantial time with Trump in Florida just a few days ago, and I’m told big things are afoot and Trump’s got major actions up his sleeve.”
An U.S. official confirmed to the Post, “We are investigating potential ties between those physically involved in the attack on the Capitol and individuals who may have influenced them, such as Roger Stone, Alex Jones and [Stop the Steal organizer] Ali Alexander.”
