After the absolute cluster we’ve witnessed this week, you may have found yourself thinking that we’ve finally hit a crescendo, a point at which things could not possibly get any worse for Alex Jones.
You would be wrong.
As we all saw yesterday, the ultra Right-wing InfoWars ended up brutally embarrassed and seemingly completely caught off guard as one of the attorneys representing the Sandy Hook families busted Jones out right to his face with proof that the talk show host had lied under oath regarding his claim that he never sent text messages or emails regarding the Sandy Hook topic. The families’ attorney was able to call Jones out with the cold, hard proof that he personally had access to after Alex’s own lawyer accidentally sent it to him.
But the humiliation didn’t stop there.

Jones’s lawyer spent today apparently trying to do damage control after his massive screw-up that landed Sandy Hook side an absolute treasure trove of Alex’s communications data. According to new reporting from Law & Crime, Jones’ lawyer, F. Andino Reynal, desperately tried to call for a mistrial on the basis of his own blunder. But the judge on the case was having absolutely no part of it.
“I don’t think it’s a mistrial based on this,” Business Insider reports Travis County District Judge Maya Guerra Gamble said as she denied the attorney’s request.
Law & Crime reports that Reynal also filed for an emergency motion that would protect the content of the InfoWars host’s phone and called on the Sandy Hook attorney to “return” all of the documents he accidentally sent them and “destroy” any documents or data that they currently possess.
Suffice it to say, Reynal nor Jones got their way today.
