DALLAS — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) defended Alex Jones at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, the same day he was ordered to pay $45.2 million in punitive damages to the parents of a victim of the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Greene, who has been suspended from Twitter, claimed social media companies are trying to silence those on the Right, citing Jones as evidence of Big Tech's ideological crackdown.

REP. ANDY BIGGS HECKLED BY CPAC FOR NOT DOING ENOUGH TO AID JAN. 6 DEFENDANTS

“Somebody like Alex Jones, who did say some things but yet he is being politically persecuted right now and being forced to pay out millions and millions of dollars, and no one agrees with what he said, but what we’re tired of is the political persecution,” she said during an onstage interview.

Greene asked when she and others who have been “canceled” on social media will be paid millions of dollars.

The damages, which were announced after Greene’s comments, may be reduced by the judge and follow the jury awarding the parents of 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, who died during the shooting, $4.1 million in compensatory damages from Jones. The parents said they faced death threats and other harassment tied to Jones's claims that the shooting was a hoax, comments he later retracted.

The InfoWars host, who faces other similar defamation lawsuits from Sandy Hook families, has tried to hide evidence of his personal and company wealth, lawyers for the Sandy Hook families suing Jones said.

Greene was locked out of her Twitter account several times after the social media giant found she was spreading misinformation about COVID-19 and the 2020 election. After her fifth strike, she was permanently suspended, a decision she appealed in April.

CPAC Texas began Thursday and is set to end Sunday. The conference has featured speeches from Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance, Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), and other high-profile figures in the GOP.

JUST IN: January 6 Committee Reportedly Obtains Alex Jones Text Messages Leaked to Sandy Hook Lawyers

The January 6 investigative committee received two years worth of Alex Jones’ text messages after the conspiracy theorist’s legal team accidentally handed them over to the Sandy Hook parents who sued him for defamation.

The House committee has been interested in obtaining Jones’ texts ever since Mark Bankston, the attorney representing the plaintiffs, informed the InfoWars conspiracy chief on the stand that his own lawyers leaked his communications records. Jones was forced to pay over $49 million in damages to the Sandy Hook parents he defamed. And CNN’s Oliver Darcy reported on Monday that Bankston handed the texts over to the committee.

“On Friday [Judge Maya Guerra Gamble] said she was not going to stand in the way between Congress and the text messages,” Darcy explained to Ana Cabrera. “Now we’re learning that they have been turned over by the Sandy Hook plaintiff team to the January 6th Committee.”

Darcy noted the January 6 Committee’s interest in Jones centers on how he prominently pushed the big lie that the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump. Jones was also at the U.S. Capitol the day Trump’s supporters violently laid siege to the building.

“They actually did talk to him,” Darcy noted, “but he said on his show that he claimed the Fifth more than 100 times. Now they’re going to see those text messages, and I think a lot more will be illuminated to them because obviously Jones was not cooperating very much with the committee.”
