Mark Bankston, an attorney for families of children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre, announced Thursday that he was asked by "various federal agencies and law enforcement agencies" to release phone and email records he unwittingly obtained received from Alex Jones' attorney during the InfoWars host's defamation trial.
Bankston added that he intends to do so unless the court stops him.

Rolling Stone reported Wednesday that sources familiar with the Jan. 6 committee's operations were preparing to subpoena Jones' phone and email records for the past two years, the existence of which revealed on Wednesday became. In a bombastic exchange during cross-examination, Bankston revealed that Jones' attorneys had inadvertently sent them two years of phone and email records of Jones -- and made no attempt to secure attorney-client privilege. In a riveting display of incompetence, Jones' attorneys did not inform Jones of this error, but allowed their client to perjure themselves on the witness stand.

Jones was a person of interest in the January 6 committee investigation into the attack on the Capitol. The conspiracy theorist helped raise funds for Trump's rally that preceded the riot. Speaking at another rally the day before the riot, Jones told the crowd that Biden was a "slave of Satan" and that no matter what happened, Trump was "still the president-elect of this republic" and that "we don't recognize the communist." Chinese agent Joe Biden or his controllers.”
The InfoWars host is also said to have worked closely with suspected January 6 conspirator Stewart Rhodes, leader of the Oath Keepers militia. Rhodes provided Jones with "security" and was a frequent guest on his show. Bankston noted Thursday that the communications treasure also included "intimate messages to Roger Stone," the former Trump adviser who is also linked to extremist groups and whom Trump allegedly told former chief of staff Mark Meadows to call him the day before the call attack.
It was not disclosed which authorities requested the recordings or what specific information they think Jones may have on his phone. In November 2021, the January 6 Committee subpoenaed Jones for documents related to January 6. In his testimony before the committee, Jones, on the direction of his attorney, invoked the 5th Amendment more than 100 times.
