According to Rolling Stone, the House committee on January 6th is getting ready to ask for the massive collection of Alex Jones’ text and email correspondence that was made public on Wednesday as part of a defamation lawsuit brought by Sandy Hook murder victims.

Attorney for the Sandy Hook victims Mark Bankston revealed to Jones on Wednesday that his lawyer had unintentionally sent Bankston three years’ worth of emails and texts from the conspiracy theorists that were seized from his phone.

Now, a source with knowledge of the situation and another person briefed on it tell Rolling Stone that the January 6th committee is getting ready to ask the plaintiff attorneys for that information to help in its probe of the uprising. Within minutes of the lawyer’s revelation being heard on the trial’s webcast on Wednesday afternoon, the committee’s internal discussions—which are looking into the former president Donald Trump’s role in sparking the deadly Capitol riot on January 6—started.

For his part in stoking public sympathy for the uprising and for his close contacts to alleged conspirator Stewart Rhodes, the head of the Oath Keepers militia, Jones has already played a significant role in the probe by the panel. Rhodes was frequently a guest on Jones’ InfoWars channel, and his militia protected the conspiracy theorist from Texas.

Jones was initially served with a subpoena by the committee in November 2021, asking him to produce records and take a deposition. Jones was initially informed by the White House on January 3, 2021, that he was to lead a march to the Capitol, where President Trump would meet with demonstrators, according to a letter sent by the committee.

Uncertainty surrounds the specifics of the committee’s search for Sandy Hook-related communications in Jones’ contacts, but Sandy Hook plaintiffs’ lawyers have accused the InfoWars host of purposely hiding important communications and lying about having looked for them. An official from the committee declined to comment.

Bankston informed Jones in court on Wednesday that the records were turned over after Jones’s counsel did not take any steps to mark them as confidential or protected in any way, and as of two days ago, they fell free and clear into my control. I can tell you lied to me because of that.
