January 6 committee and federal investigators requested Alex Jones’ cellphone information, Sandy Hook lawyer says.

“Various federal agencies and law enforcement are asking me to provide (the records),” plaintiffs’ attorney Mark Bankston told Judge Maya Guerra Gamble. “Unless you have a decision that says you can’t do it … I intend to do it right after this hearing.”

“I think Mr. Reynal did absolutely nothing to fulfill his obligations to protect his client and prevent me from doing this,” he said, referring to Jones’ attorney, Andino Reynal.

“The January 6th committee asked me to hand over the documents,” Bankston later added.

Bankston declined to tell CNN which other investigators outside of the House committee have expressed interest in obtaining Jones’ text records.

Bankston appeared in court on Wednesday that Reinal’s company, in an apparent accident, sent him two years of cell phone records containing all the messages Jones had sent.
January 6 Jones was a key player. He attended the anti-riot rally, though he didn’t make it to the Capitol. Founder of Infowars testified virtually before the January 6 committee earlier this year, but he said he repeatedly asserted his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent during the interview.

The judge overseeing the case advised Reynal to take some time while they await sentencing to explore a legal argument to prevent Bankston from revealing the information on January 6. committee and others.

Later Thursday, a jury in the case ordered Jones to pay more than $4 million to the parents of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting for defamation and infliction of emotional distress.
