Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones received a rude awakening in court this week, as an attorney representing parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting revealed that Jones’ lawyer had accidentally provided him with a copy of his client’s text messages.
The courtroom exchange was shared widely via Twitter.

Now, those same text messages could find their way into the hands of the January 6th select committee.
An attorney representing two parents who sued conspiracy theorist Alex Jones over his false claims about the Sandy Hook massacre said Thursday that the House Jan. 6 committee has requested two years’ worth of records from Jones’ phone.Trending:
Attorney Mark Bankston said in court that the committee investigating the attack on the U.S. Capitol has requested the digital records.
The House committee did not immediately return a request for comment.
The House Committee has repeatedly and unsuccessfully attempted to tie former President Donald Trump into a wild conspiracy theory regarding the events of January 6th, 2021, in which Alex Jones, Roger Stone, and others are purportedly central players.
