Alex Jones Turns Heated Courtroom Exchange From CT Trial Into Cryptocurrency Ad – Danbury News Times | Jewelry Dukan

Attorney Chris Mattei, it seems, was spot on.

During one of Alex Jones’ many heated arguments Thursday in court, Mattei suggested he caught Jones plugging in a landing page that allows people to make cryptocurrency donations to his Infowars channel.

Jones was summoned to testify Thursday at his trial for defamation damages in Connecticut. When the crypto poll was moved, he listed the full URL where the donation page can be found.

“Was that just a small advertisement?” Mattei asked.

“Well, we’re fighting the deep state,” Jones replied. “We need money.”

A few minutes after Mattei said:

“That will end up as a clip on your show tonight. Your promotion of your cryptocurrency site.”

Less than 24 hours after the volley, Jones had done just that. A nearly minute-long advert featuring the exchange, with the site’s address emblazoned at the bottom, was periodically broadcast on Jones’ Infowars channel.

Alex Jones held a press conference outside the courthouse on day six of the Sandy Hook trial for defamation damages in Connecticut Superior Court in Waterbury, Connecticut on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.

The site offers visitors the opportunity to donate using one of eight forms of cryptocurrency.

“Please note that your sponsorship goes directly in support of the Infowars team in their fight for truth against tyranny,” the site reads.

However, it does not say that the donations go directly to Jones’ personal account. Last week, company representative Brittany Paz testified that the donations go there. Jones confirmed this to the jury on Thursday. He said $9 million has been donated so far, all but $60,000 of which has been donated to Free Speech Systems, the company he owns and operates Inforwars.

Jones is on trial in Connecticut to determine how much money he owes eight families of Sandy Hook shooting victims and a former FBI agent. Jones has already been found guilty of defamation. He has already been ordered to pay $49 million in connection with a defamation lawsuit against Sandy Hook in Texas.

Jones was found guilty of defamation in three separate trials related to the Sandy Hook shooting. Beginning hours after the shooting and continuing for years, Jones spread lies on Infowars that the shooting was a “huge hoax,” that parents and children killed were actors, and that it was a “false flag” operation run by the federal government Reason should give attack on the second amendment.

The study focuses on how coverage of Sandy Hook impacted Infowars revenue and web traffic. Mattei has tried to show jurors that the coverage has led to a massive surge in Jones’ profits and popularity while causing eternal grief for families.

Jones has claimed he doesn’t make any money covering Sandy Hook – a statement Judge Barbara Bellis has barred him from making in court. However, he repeated it several times on the steps of the courthouse.

During her testimony last week, Paz – who was chosen by Jones to represent the company – said the entire operation of Infowars is designed to attract visitors to the web store. Jones tried to distance himself from Paz’s comments during an impromptu news conference outside Waterbury Courthouse on Wednesday.

“She came to Austin for three weeks. We opened everything up to her,” Jones said. “I do not like her. I don’t attack her. But she was standing up there and just had no idea what she was talking about.”

Paz told jurors she requested a number of articles from Infowars to prepare for the trial, including Jones’ testimony, but she did not receive all of the material.
