The attorney representing two Sandy Hook parents who successfully sued conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for nearly $50 million, said on Monday that Jones sent an intimate photo of his wife to political operative Roger Stone.
Mark Bankston revealed during the trial last week that one of Jones’ lawyers had inadvertently sent him two years of their client’s text messages and that “intimate messages” with Stone were among them.
Jones later ranted about his lawyer’s mistake on Infowars and said attorneys now have a naked photo of his wife, which he said he sent her.
“There was a photo I sent my wife of her naked,” Jones said. “Okay, they got that. So, my wife looks pretty good. The point is, there is one naked picture of my wife in there, so that’s what they got! No d**k pics, no nothing.”
In an interview on The Young Turks: The Conversation, Bankston confirmed there was “an intimate photo” of Jones’ wife on the phone and that it was sent to Stone, which could be a possible violation of state law.
“I normally wouldn’t talk about that in public, but there is a public interest angle into this,” Bankston said. “I’m a little concerned about it because that intimate photo was sent to Roger Stone. And I don’t know if that was consensual.”
“If it wasn’t consensual, Mrs. Wulff Jones should know about that. And there might be something that needs to be done about that,” he added. “Then again, it could be totally consensual. But when I see that—and I don’t see any indication that it was—I’m concerned something might not be on the up and up with that. There are certainly laws in certain states about that.”
