While he was on the witness stand during his defamation trial on Wednesday, InfoWars host Alex Jones learned that his own legal team inadvertently sent his text messages from his phone to the plaintiffs’ attorneys.
- Whose messages are those? Whose phone is this taken from?
ALEX JONES: I don't know whose phone it's taken from.
- Did you know that 12 days ago, 12 days ago, your attorneys messed up and sent me an entire digital copy of your entire cell phone, with every text message you've sent for the past two years and when informed did not take any steps to identify it as privileged or protected in any way. And as of two days ago, it fell free and clear into my possession, 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?
ALEX JONES: See, I told you the truth. This is your Perry Mason moment. I gave them my phone, and then--
- Mr. Jones, you need to answer the question.
- Did you know that this happened?
ALEX JONES: No, I didn't know this happened, but I mean, I told you I gave my phone over.
- You said, you pulled down the text, did the search function for Sandy Hook. That's what you said, Mr. Jones. Correct?
ALEX JONES: And I had several different phones with this number, but I did, yeah. I mean, that's why you've got it.
- No, Mr. Jones, that's not why I have it.
ALEX JONES: My lawyer sent it to you, but I'm hiding it. OK.
