Alex Jones and Roger Stone subpoenaed in Capitol probe
On Monday, the Democrat select committee investigating the January 6 event on the US Capitol subpoenaed Alex Jones and longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone. The panel also issued subpoenas Monday for a current spokesperson for President Trump, Taylor Budowich, and for a couple who helped organize a January 6 rally, Dustin Stockton and Jennifer Lawrence.
Stone and Jones both gave speeches on January 5 at a rally in Freedom Plaza near the White House.
“This is nothing less than an epic struggle for the future of this country between dark and light, between the godly and godless, between good and evil,” Stone said at that event. “And we will win this fight or America will step off into a thousand years of darkness. We dare not fail. I don’t know how this is all going to end, but if they want to fight, they better believe they’ve got one,” Jones told the crowd.
For his part, Jones personally pledged more than $50,000 to help fund the January 6 rally, and helped to convince Julie Jenkins Fancelli, a prominent donor to the Trump campaign and heiress to the Publix Super Markets chain, to give about $300,000 to cover most of the cost of the event, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Both Jones and Stone were ultimately scratched from the list of speakers preceding Trump at the January 6 event. Stone left Washington without attending Trump’s speech. Jones joined demonstrators who marched toward the Capitol. The Justice Department in August charged a man who was standing next to Jones near the top of the stairs on the east side of the Capitol with entering a restricted area. Jones himself has not been charged. He has insisted that he urged members of the crowd outside the Capitol to remain peaceful, and he denied wrongdoing.
