Alex Jones’ attorneys ‘messed up,’ sending 2 years of texts to Sandy Hook family lawyers

Alex Jones accidentally sent years’ worth of their client’s text messages containing contradicting claims regarding the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting to the attorney representing the family of one of the victims. Mark Bankston, the attorney representing the parents of a 6-year-old boy who was killed in the 2012 attack, revealed on Wednesday that Jones’ attorneys "messed up" and sent Bankston "an entire digital copy" of Jones’ cellphone from the past two years.  The messages that were accidentally sent to Bankston were not labeled as privileged by Jones’ attorneys, which would have thereby kept them out of court. "That is how I know you lied to me when you said you didn’t have text messages about Sandy Hook. Did you know that?" Bankston asked Jones.  To which Jones mockingly replied, "See, I told you the truth.
