Alex Jones speaks out against defamation trial, calls it ‘murder of due process’

Alex Jones spoke out in front of reporters this week about the defamation trial against him seeking damages for his false claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012 was a hoax.

“The judge is doing this for political reasons,” Jones told reporters on Tuesday outside the courthouse in Texas. “Everything is hidden in plain view. I’ve been found guilty by the judge, and now there’s a trial where they tell a jury to decide how much money I pay because I’m already guilty. That’s never happened.”

Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, the parents of Jesse Lewis, who was killed by the Sandy Hook gunman in the shooting, filed the defamation suit against Jones for his claims that the shooting was a false flag operation.

The judge in the trial found Jones guilty in a default judgment, claiming Jones did not comply with discovery. The trial is now being held to determine the amount of damages Jones must pay out to Heslin and Lewis. They are seeking $150 million in damages, Reuters reports.

“They have taken my right for a jury to decide if I’m guilty, and now a judge tells a jury that I’m guilty?” Jones asked the press. “This is the murder of your rights to due process to the federal Constitution and the state Constitution of Texas that in any number of just a few dollars that you get the jury to decide if you’re guilty and then they decide damages in a separate group of hearings,” Jones said.

“This is the weaponization of the judiciary. It’s absolutely horrifying.” He said the case would “go down in history as one of the greatest show trials ever to happen.”
