    The House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol attack is now in possession of a trove of text messages from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' cellphone, it was reported on Monday. CNN reports that lawmakers on the bipartisan panel were handed two years' worth of correspondences to and from Jones, as they draw links between the US Capitol riot and Donald Trump and his allies' attempt to overturn the 2020 election. The panel reportedly obtained the texts from lawyer Mark Bankston, who is representing the parents of a 6-year-old killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. The parents won a lawsuit against Jones last week after he repeatedly decried the massacre as a 'false flag' and claimed the children who were killed are crisis actors, in addition to a host of other inappropriate remarks about the shooting. Jones was ordered to pay nearly $50 million to the two families in punitive and compensatory damages. A spokesman for the January 6 committee declined to comment when asked by DailyMail.com. Bankston apparently caught Jones by surprise when he revealed during...
    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones immediately took to the airwaves after the verdict in his defamation trial on Friday - which will see him be forced to pay nearly $50million in damages to the family of slain six-year-old Jesse Lewis.  Lewis was among the 20 children who were shot dead by crazed gunman Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012. Another six people were killed in the massacre. For years Jones claimed on his InfoWars platform that the shooting in Newton was a 'false flag' operation perpetrated by the US government to further gun control. In his Friday broadcast, Jones claimed the trial against him was 'coordinated and run' by billionaire philanthropist George Soros and 'operatives.' He did not identify the other 'operatives' by name. The host also accused Judge Maya Guerra Gamble of being a 'blue-haired SJW' and insinuated that she was corrupt by saying that she 'altered the record of the trial.' 'SJW' stands for Social Justice Warrior.  In his Friday broadcast, Jones claimed that the trial against him was 'coordinated and run' by...
    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $45.2 million in punitive damages to the family of slain 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, one of the 26 people were shot dead in the Sandy Hook massacre.  That's in addition to the $4 million the InfoWars host was ordered to pay yesterday.  In his closing statement, the lawyer for the victims' families said: 'Alex Jones is worth almost $270 million that we know of. Please take an amount that punishes him, and an amount that ensures he never does this again.' This is the first of three trials that Jones will face in relation to his claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax.  Two others are set for September, one in Texas and one in Connecticut, where the shooting took place. A total of eight families will be represented in the Connecticut trial.   Alex JONES attempts to answer questions about his text messages asked by Mark Bankston (not shown), lawyer for Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, during trial at the Travis County Courthouse Wednesday Aug. 3, 2022  'We ask that you...
    Conservative conspiracy theorist Alex Jones begged his viewers to donate to him on Thursday after he was ordered to pay more than $4 million to the parents of a child killed in the Sandy Hook massacre, which he once claimed was a hoax, as an economist testifies in court that he and his company are worth $270 million. In a video posted Thursday to Infowars.com, Jones said the amount he's ordered to pay is 'more than my company has [and] more than I personally have,' claiming 'we are so broke.' Jones told viewers it's their responsibility to keep him and his company afloat, saying in the video 'if you don't fund us... we will shut down' and telling them 'it's your decision' whether Infowars shuts down. He added the company 'can barely keep the crew employed' due to their financial issues, but his website was found to have made over $800,000 a day during their peak in 2017, though Jones called that their best day ever.  Alex Jones released a video asking his viewers to help fund him, and said...

    A Missouri school district has to pay $4 million to a transgender student after refusing to allow him to use the boys' bathrooms or locker rooms, a jury ruled Monday.  The Jackson County jury found the Blue Springs school district had discriminated against the student, identified as RJ Appleberry, who is now 21 and a college student, according to the Star-Observer.    Appleberry legally changed his name in 2010, when he was 10 years old - a year after he started to transition. He amended his birth certificate to show his gender and new name in 2014, when he was 14.   He sued the school a year later after filing a charge of discrimination with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights in late 2014.  Despite the state recognizing him as a boy, the school district denied Appleberry the ability to access the boys' locker rooms and bathrooms at both the Delta Woods Middle School and the Freshman Center, according to the lawsuit.  Appleberry, pictured, who is now in college, sued the school district a year later after filing a charge of discrimination...

    Former President Donald Trump has lost a legal effort where he sought to hold former senior White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman to a non-disclosure agreement after she wrote a tell-all book that called him a racist. And he blasted his one-time aide in a stinging statement that did not mention the legal status of his suit, following a report that a New York arbitrator ruled against Trump's claim and ordered him to pay Omarosa's legal fees.  'I gave Omarosa three attempts at The Apprentice and she failed. At her desperate request I gave her an attempt at the White House and she failed there too, people truly hated her. At least now I don’t have to let her fail anymore,' Trump said in a statement provided to DailyMail.com. 'Nobody in her life has done more for Omarosa than a man named Donald Trump.
