Moment Alex Jones admits that the Sandy Hook massacre happened and was not a hoax

Alex Jones was shocked to hear his lawyers accidentally hand over hundreds of text messages after he told a judge they didn’t exist after admitting the Sandy Hook massacre took place.

The InfoWars host squirmed in his seat after confirming his phone number was linked to the texts, after earlier testifying under oath at a defamation hearing that there were no Sandy Hook-related messages on his phone.

Jones was horrified that his team sent a digital copy of all the texts and emails about Sandy Hook, despite declaring under oath that they didn’t exist.

Attorney Mark Banston, working for the Sandy Hook parents, said they received the information 12 days ago, years ago.

Jones called the “Perry Mason” moment during the trial, accusing Jones of perjuring himself while giving evidence.

He previously testified that he was unable to find any emails related to the Sandy Hook massacre, and was shocked when one was shown on the court’s screen.

Jones was asked if he repeatedly felt he was irresponsible in claiming the shooting was a hoax, and he replied, “Especially since I’ve met the parents.”

He said he was under “a lot of pressure” at the time he said the murders were a hoax, adding: “I really meant it when I said those statements.

“When I say something, I mean, I could really believe it was completely staged, at that point.”

But the parents of 6-year-old Jesse Heslin, who was among the 26 people killed in a 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, say an apology isn’t enough.

Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis said Jones should be held accountable for repeatedly spreading falsehoods about the shooting, and are seeking at least $150 million.

Alex Jones, pictured in court today, admitted the Sandy Hook massacre was “100 percent real” and was not a hoax in his defamation trial.

Jones took the stand yesterday and told the judge that he had completed the pre-trial evidence collection even though he had not done so, and the judge reprimanded him.

Judge Maya Guerra Gamble told the jury that the entire contents of the phone “were not properly returned when it should have been.”

The posts also reveal that InfoWars was making $800,000 in 2018, with the Sandy Hook parent attorney adding that “once you’re on the platform, your numbers just keep getting better.”

His parent company, Free Speech Systems, filed for bankruptcy on Friday, in the middle of a two-week trial.

It’s about determining how much the conspiracy theorist will have to pay the parents of a victim of the Sandy Hook shooting in Austin, Texas.

Jones, who took the stand yesterday, told the judge that he had completed the pre-trial evidence collection even though he had not.

The judge sent the jury out of the courtroom and reprimanded the judge severely for saying that he had also failed, which is not specified.

The plaintiff’s attorneys were upset that Jones has been referred to bankruptcy, which they believe will taint the jury’s decision.

“This is not your show,” judge Maya Guerra Gamble told Jones. “Your beliefs do not make anything true. You are under oath.”

Neil Heslin, father of Sandy Hook victim Jesse Lewis, 6, told of his family's life

Neil Heslin, the father of Sandy Hook victim Jesse Lewis, 6, said his family’s life became a “living hell” after Alex Jones spread conspiracy theories about the massacre.

Jones repeatedly said the 2012 massacre, which left 20 students and six teachers dead,

Jones has repeatedly said the 2012 massacre, which left 20 students and six teachers dead, was a “hoax” and a “staged”.

Last September, Guerra admonished Jones for failing to turn over documents requested by the Sandy Hook families in his default judgment.

A Connecticut court granted a similar default judgment against Jones on the same grounds in another lawsuit brought by other Sandy Hook parents.

Jones has portrayed the lawsuit against him as an attack on his First Amendment rights.

The parents have asked the jury to award them $150 million in damages for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and a jury will decide whether Jones and his company will pay damages.

Courts in Texas and Connecticut have already found Jones liable for defamation for portraying the Sandy Hook massacre as a hoax.

In both states, judges entered default judgments against Jones without a trial because he failed to respond to court orders and turn over documents.

The Sandy Hook families have individually sued Jones over their financial claims, arguing that the company is trying to protect the millions Jones and his family own through shell entities.

Yesterday he clashed again with lawyers for the Sandy Hook families, accusing them of feeding the jury “fake videos” during the trial.

Jones cited the delivery of the documents as his 'Perry Mason' moment, made famous by a fictional character created by Erle Stanley Gardner.

After Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose son Jesse, 6, was one of 26 killed in the massacre, testified that Jones’ theories made their lives “a living hell,” the InfoWars host approached their lawyers as they left court.

Jones again commented on the footage, with one of the lawyers telling him to “shut up”.

Jones replied: “That’s what you’re trying to do, shut up, you’ll never succeed.”

It comes days after the InfoWars host got into a fight with the family’s attorney, removing Jones’ attorney F. Andino Reynal from attorney Mark Bankston in court.

The parents gave a charged testimony, and the judge reprimanded the bombastic Jones for not being truthful with some of what he said under oath.

Heslin and Lewis said they fear for their lives and have been confronted by strangers at home and on the street after Jones spread conspiracy theories about them.

Heslin said his house and car have been shot up, as the jury also heard a death threat sent by phone to another Sandy Hook family.

He told the court: “I can’t even begin to describe the last nine and a half years, the living hell that I and others have had to endure because of Alex Jones’ carelessness and recklessness.”
