“Electronic material that Infowars host Alex Jones turned over to the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims who are suing him contained images of child pornography, according to a court filing.
The filing also accuses Jones of threatening Christopher Mattei, a lawyer for the families, and his law firm, during an online broadcast of “The Alex Jones Show” on Friday in which he angrily claimed that unnamed people were “trying to set me up with child porn.”
The suit claims that Jones and others have “persistently perpetuated a monstrous, unspeakable lie: that the Sandy Hook shooting was staged and that the families who lost loved ones that day are actors who faked their relatives’ deaths.” Jones has said more recently that he has “had a chance to believe that children died” at Sandy Hook.”
“A Connecticut judge on Tuesday sanctioned InfoWars founder Alex Jones after he threatened one of the attorneys representing families of Sandy Hook shooting victims. Jones lashed out after the families’ lawyers alleged that Jones sent them child porn. Jones is being sued by the families for spreading the false conspiracy theory that the shooting, which claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults, is a hoax.
Bridgeport Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis said Jones crossed a line by personally targeting one of the Sandy Hook families’ attorneys in a segment on his web show about the allegations, according CBS Hartford affiliate WFSB-TV. As part of the sanction, Jones lost a special motion to dismiss the case, and he’ll be on the hook for plaintiff attorney fees related to the child porn investigation.
In a motion filed in court Monday, the families’ attorneys said that when a consultant was reviewing documents Jones turned over for the case, they found “an image that appeared to be child pornography.” They immediately contacted counsel, who then went to the FBI.
The FBI found “numerous additional illegal images” in the documents, which had apparently been sent to InfoWars email addresses.
“It is worth noting that if the Jones Defendants had engaged in even minimal due diligence and actually reviewed the materials before production, they would have found the images themselves,” the statement said. “Because the Jones Defendants did not do that, they transmitted images to the plaintiffs that if they were knowingly possessed is a serious federal crime.”
“You’re trying to set me up with child porn,” Mr. Jones said. “One million dollars to put your head on a pike.”
Norman Pattis, a lawyer for Mr. Jones, said that the allegation had already been investigated by the F.B.I. and that Mr. Jones had been cleared of any wrongdoing.”
“Attorneys representing victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre who are suing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for defamation have accused the InfoWars host of sending them files containing child pornography.
The Connecticut Post reports that court documents filed on Monday show that the law firm representing the Sandy Hook victims claims that it discovered several inappropriate images involving children in a large stash of electronic files that Jones had been ordered to turn over.”
“…lawyers say when Jones complied with the court request, he also sent over electronic files containing child porn, per CT Post.
Jones has since claimed that the child porn was placed on his servers in a malware attack, and offered $1 million to whoever found who did it, per The Daily Beast. On his Friday Infowars show, he implied that Christopher Mattei, the attorney representing the Sandy Hook families, planted the material.”
“During his Infowars internet radio show last Friday, lawyers for Sandy Hook families who are suing Alex Jones say the controversial radio host threatened one of them when he discussed the presence of child pornography in emails from his program’s computer server.
A Superior Court judge will hold an emergency hearing Tuesday in Bridgeport on the alleged threat. Jones appeared to threaten Chris Mattei, a lawyer for the Sandy Hook families, when he announced a $1 million reward for any information and then the conviction of the person who he said planted pornography on his company’s webserver.”
“It appears, according to a report from The Daily Beast, that Jones was ordered to hand over a trove of data to lawyers involved in the Sandy Hook defamation suit against the controversial media personality. In about a dozen threatening emails sent to Infowars “by one or more anonymous people,” Sandy Hook lawyers found images of child pornography, which, according to Jones attorney Norman Pattis, were never opened. Sandy Hook legal representation sent over the material to the FBI in late May, when they received the messages, sparking an investigation.
“I spoke to federal prosecutors last week. They report that there is no indication anyone at InfoWars knowingly possessed child pornography,” said Pattis, according to the outlet. “The items were embedded in emails sent to folks at InfoWars without ever having been opened.”
“Court documents allege that InfoWars founder and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was in possession of child pornography and sent it to the legal team defending the families of Sandy Hook victims.
Lawyers from Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, the firm representing the families of Sandy Hook victims, filed a statement on Monday stating that they discovered child pornography in documents that Jones’ defense sent as part of the discovery process of the lawsuit.
Upon discovering these items, the counsel immediately sent them to the FBI for further inspection — which confirmed that they were indeed pornographic images of children, the counsel said.”
There’s an actual response from InfoWars included in this collection of links…
It’s only fair that this not be weeded out, considering they have a right to unimpeded response to such accusations.
It’s plausible that someone sent them “child porn”, unsolicited.
Given the inhumane B.S. people are put through when they’re found to possess “child porn”…I wouldn’t even wish this sort of karma on someone like Alex Jones…
…even though he is an a-hole, who’s been awful towards MAP’s…and it would be mighty satisfying, to watch him walk a mile in our shoes.
…I would never be so cruel, as to drop “child porn” onto anyone.

Being an outrage merchant who can keep eyes on himself…I’m sure some type of network will see lots of potential in him.
He’ll likely just go on doing what he does…but on an even larger platform.
I have a hard time feeling sorry for people like Paul Joseph Watson…who spend their lives profiting off of outrage culture, like a parasite.
He probably wont get the karma he honestly has earned for himself.
…His landing is likely to be a soft one…But, he’ll be crying about “the injustices done to him”, for years to come…
With people like him…they need to look straight into the mirror, when asking “What happened?”
I somehow doubt they are so oblivious…that the answer is even a mystery to them.

“Paul Joseph Watson opposes all violence?!…”
Being a MAP who witnessed this individual telling MAPs to “Eat a bullet” [in response to a simple media article, explaining and humanizing MAPs]…and having been subjected to way, way too much of this individual over the years…
…I can say with absolute certainty, that the above statement is an absolute load of horse poo.
This sounds like a simple case where the chickens have come home to roost, for an individual who’s spent decades attacking and dehumanizing other humans [with his buddy Alex].
He recently broke off from Alex Jones, and was planning on launching his own “InfoWars” type venture…
…I’m thinking Facebook may have taken this as a sign, to get ahead of the curve.
A distinction I hope most people wont miss, this time around:
Just like I have never even once called for the censorship of Alex Jones…I have also never called for the censorship of Paul [or any other “conservative” personality or venture].
I have absolutely spent years and years, wondering how in the hell Alex, Paul and company have managed to stay shielded from being recognized as a hate group, or even a terrorist organization [and some of their media absolutely would support this conclusion]…But I’ve never joined in the effort to get them thrown off of any platform.
I’m more of the philosophy…that the a-holes of this world need to be free to expose themselves as a-holes…
…so that the rest of us can recognize and warn…”Hey…that’s an a-hole!”…and be a tad bit safer, and more informed [by knowing where the violence spewing a-holes are], in this world.
I’m not celebrating…
…But I’m also not dumb…and I realize there is a very genuine, real mixture of factors at play here which led to this type of conclusion.
…Just because a few of them may be horse crap, doesn’t mean they all are.
The writing was on the wall, for many years.

“Alex Jones is claiming to suffer from psychosis.
CNN’s Michael Smerconish teed off on Alex Jones after the video deposition of the conspiracy theorist went up online yesterday.
Smerconish was bewildered by Jones trying to call his comments “punditry,” pointing out how victims and families are still dealing with their grief.
“These media provocateurs likes Jones,” he said, “they know that passion sells. That’s what this is all about. They need people to pay attention to them. And the best way to do that is to be shocking. Many times with disregard of decency.

“It’s time to rehabilitate some of the more extreme social media personalities to prevent things from further going off the rails. If #AlexJones actually is getting psychosis from #deplatforming and media coverage, perhaps it’s time to actually try to have a conversation.
Alex might be mentally ill…I don’t know…
…But I wouldn’t be too quick, to take his words at face value here.
He’s trying to avoid being sued into oblivion…and his integrity has a monstrously bad track record.
The base discussion in this video is important to everybody, however. This brewing situation is likely to impact all of us.

“Broadcaster and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones said it was a “form of psychosis” that caused him to believe certain events — like the Sandy Hook massacre — were staged.”
