Lawyers Representing Sandy Hook Victims Notify FBI After Receiving Child Porn From Alex Jones





Lawyers representing families of Sandy Hook shooting victims said in a new court filing that Infowars founder Alex Jones sent them child pornography in electronic files turned over them as part of a lawsuit against him, according to The Connecticut Post.

The law firm Koskoff, Koskoff and Bieder said it made the shocking discovery after Jones turned over the files in response to the families’ defamation lawsuit against him for previously claiming the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, in which 26 people died, was a “hoax.”

Sandy Hook lawyers claim to have found the child porn when they began reviewing electronically stored data on Jones’s business operations, prompting them to immediately notify the FBI.




Jones vehemently denied the accusation on Monday, saying on his InfoWars show that lawyer Chris Mattei was trying to frame him.

“You’re trying to set me up with child porn, I’ll get your ass,” Jones said on the broadcast, before adding, “one million dollars, you little gang members. One million dollars to put your head on a pike.”

Mattei and his law firm said they are treating Jones’s remarks as threats against them.

“Mr. Jones was upset, he did not threaten Mr. Mattei,” said Norman Pattis, Jones’s lawyer. “He spoke in a compassionate fashion.”

In an email to The Hill, Jones said that he spoke to federal prosecutors last week and that there is “no indication anyone at InfoWars knowingly possessed child pornography.”



“The items were embedded in emails sent to folks at InfoWars without ever having been opened,” he said. “The plaintiffs’s lawyer suggestion that anyone at InfoWars knew child pornography was embedded in emails is risible.”

Lawyers for the Sandy Hook families have asked a Connecticut court to take immediate action on the new allegation.

A court hearing focused on the new documents is scheduled for Tuesday, the Post reported.
