Exclusive: The Truth About the Alex Jones Phone Records

Emergency protective order reveals emails showing lawyers not given approval to use material in court as it would violate attorney client privilege.

An emergency protective order motion has been filed in the Alex Jones case relating to claims in court that lawyers had inadvertently obtained years worth of Jones’ phone records, with emails showing Plaintiffs had not been given approval to use the material in court as it would violate attorney client privilege.

A video clip from the trial went viral yesterday showing Jones responding to the revelation by Mark Bankston that Jones’ lawyers had mistakenly sent Bankston what he described as “an entire digital copy of your entire cell phone, with every text message you’ve sent for the past two years.”

“That is how I know you lied to me when you said you did not have text messages about Sandy Hook,” Bankston claimed.

This was then seized upon by media outlets to suggest that some kind of Hunter Biden laptop moment had occurred, apparently miring Jones in an even deeper scandal.

However, according to an Emergency Motion for Enforcement of Protective Order filed by Jones’ lawyers, they did not given permission for the files, which only span a 6 month period from the end of 2019 through early 2020 and do not represent “an entire digital copy” of the cellphone, to be entered into evidence in court.

“The file transfer link, however, inadvertently gave Plaintiffs access to dozens of other folders as well, including confidential documents, such as the medical records of Sandy Hook Parents who are Plaintiffs in the Connecticut litigation and other documents subject to various privileges, including attorney-client and work product,” states the motion.

An email shows that the issue was raised by Bankston, who told Jones’ attorneys in an email that the files contained “confidential information.”

“My assumption is now that you did not intend to send us this? Let me know if I’m correct,” he enquired.

Bankston was told by Jones’ attorney F. Andino Reynal to “disregard the link.”

“It is now apparent that Plaintiffs’ counsel did not “disregard the link”, but has reviewed and used documents he acknowledged defendants “did not intend to send” and appeared to be “work product or confidential.” Defendants, therefore, seek Emergency relief pursuant to Rule 193.3 and the Court’s Protective Order,” states the motion.

The chunk of files were apparently sent to Bankston by a paralegal by mistake and were intended for lawyers in Connecticut representing other Sandy Hook families in separate cases, but were seized upon by Bankston and the media to suggest Jones had engaged in perjury or that he was hiding information.

Jones responded to the controversy by asserting that he turned all his phones over to his lawyers and was merely trying to comply with discovery.

Despite not being given permission to use the material in court, Bankston appears to have used it anyway as a PR stunt to sneak attack Jones, take him by surprise, and generate salacious media headlines.

Jones’ lawyers are now asserting that the files should have been deleted under Texas law and that their citation in court was a clear violation of attorney client privilege.

“On August 3, 2022, Counsel for Defendants learned, for the first time, that Bankston neither deleted nor disregarded the link sent in error. Rather, despite realizing just from “reading the directories” that they contained confidential, privileged and work product documents, he chose to violate various privileges, including the attorney-client privilege and work-product privilege, and invade third parties’ privacy by opening the individual files and reading them, subsequently knowingly using confidential information in the cross-examination of Defendant Jones,” states the motion, which can be read in full below.

Report: FBI Raid Targeted Docs Trump Collected To “Exonerate” Himself From Russiagate Hoax

“Material that Trump apparently thought would exonerate him of any claims of Russian collusion in 2016 or any other election-related charges.”

A report in Newsweek citing U.S. intelligence officials has claimed that one of the main purposes of the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago was to find documents that President Trump had collected and intended to use as proof to put to bed once and for all the Russian collusion conspiracy theory.

The report states that Trump intended to “weaponise” the documents as part of his campaign for 2024.

The article notes that “The sought-after documents deal with a variety of intelligence matters of interest to the former president, the officials suggest—including material that Trump apparently thought would exonerate him of any claims of Russian collusion in 2016 or any other election-related charges.”

The piece also quotes a former Trump official who states that “Trump was particularly interested in matters related to the Russia hoax and the wrong-doings of the deep state.”

“I think he felt, and I agree, that these are facts that the American people need to know,” the anonymous former aide added.

This development comes as a Florida federal magistrate is scheduled to hold a hearing on whether or not to unseal the probable cause affidavit for the raid.

Commenting on the ongoing matter, Senator Rand Paul stated that “the burden is on the FBI to justify this raid.”

In a Fox News appearance, Paul said “This is extraordinary. This is also the same FBI that used a foreign intelligence warrant to snoop on and spy on the Trump campaign to investigate them for over two years. So I think the burden really is on the FBI. They’ve been wrong in the past. They’ve broken the law in using these foreign intelligence warrants. Now they used a domestic warrant, but I do think they need to release the justification for this, because this is extraordinary.”

The Senator further urged “We should not lose sight of the fact this has never, ever happened before for good reason, because we need to have confidence in the FBI. We need to have confidence in our intelligence agencies that they’re there to protect us and not to go after people for political purposes. So the burden is on them to prove that this is not a politically motivated witch hunt.”

Paul hit out at FBI director Christopher Wray, asserting that he “thinks it’s fine to use FISA or foreign intelligence warrants on Americans, and a lot of people think that’s true. I don’t, but this is part of the abuse. But this is part of the same people who are still running the FBI. They have a different understanding, maybe, of what they think the FBI can and cannot do and how it should be used on Americans, but I’m going to require proof that there was actually some sort of probable cause of a crime, and I’m suspicious that there was not.”

    Delusional Liz Cheney Says She Might Run For PRESIDENT

    She couldn’t get 40% of her own constituents to vote for her

    After failing to convince even 40 percent of her own constituents to vote for her, Liz Cheney suggested Wednesday that she might try running for President.

    Cheney made the comments on the TODAY show, stating “That’s a decision I’m going to make in the coming months… It is something I’m thinking about.”

    Cheney also declared “I will do whatever it takes to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office.”

    As host Savannah Guthrie noted, Cheney will lead an organisation that will mount a “unified effort” to prevent Trump from running for President.

    “In coming weeks, Liz will be launching an organization to educate the American people about the ongoing threat to our Republic, and to mobilize a unified effort to oppose any Donald Trump campaign for president,” Cheney spokesperson Jeremy Adler told Politico.

    Surely this will all just help Trump.

    In her speech earlier this week as it became clear she had lost in a landslide, Cheney actually compared herself to Abraham Lincoln:
