Alex Jones has already been scolded by the judge in his defamation trial for lying under oath. Now he’s being called out on false or misleading statements regarding his text messages related to Sandy Hook — after the attorney for the plaintiff revealed that Jones’ attorney accidentally sent him a copy of years of Jones’ text messages.
Jones is facing a jury to determine exactly what, in punitive and compensatory damages, he’ll owe after spreading conspiracy theories about the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, causing their families additional pain and grief, and even inspiring some of his fans to the level of harassing the families.
Watch his reaction as he learns that his attorney accidentally sent the plaintiff’s attorney years of his text messages, then tries to argue that they were turned over on purpose, in compliance with discovery, instead of answering the question — which is a reference to his false claims that he didn’t have any texts about Sandy Hook.

Attorney: “….and that is how I know you lied to me when you said you didn’t have text messages about Sandy Hook. Did you know that?”
Jones: “See? I told you the truth. This is your Perry Mason moment. I gave them my phone, and…”
The judge is forced to interrupt and demand that Jones answer the question.
Attorney: “You said in your deposition that you searched your phone. You said you pulled down the text messages and did a search for ‘Sandy Hook.’ That’s what you said, Mr. Jones. Correct?
Jones: “And I had several different phones with this number. But I did, yeah. Of course. That’s why you’ve got it!”
