Alex Jones' Ex-Wife Says She Has 'Insider Info' for Jan. 6 Committee

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' ex-wife says she has "insider info" that will be welcomed by the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

"I'm #AlexJones' ex-wife, & I lost my kids for exposing infowars, even while he was under subsequent Federal Investigation. I have insider info that I believe is relevant to the #January6thCommitteeHearings. Pls share," Kelly Jones tweeted more than 40 times on Tuesday, alongside previous tweets she has posted.

Her comments came after the panel, during its seventh televised hearing on Tuesday, showed how a tweet from former President Donald Trump calling his supporters to Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021, was viewed by some as a "call to arms."

Trump tweeted on December 19, 2020, about a "big protest" at the coming joint session of Congress. "Be there, will be wild!" Trump wrote.

"Trump's purpose was to mobilize a crowd," said Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Democratic committee member.

Raskin said "key Trump supporters, including far-right media personalities, began promoting the 'wild' protest on January 6."

The panel played a montage of videos and social media posts showing how the tweet was promoted by Alex Jones and other right-wing figures.

"It's Saturday, December 19, the year is 2020 and one of the most historic events in American history has just taken place. President Trump in the early morning hours today tweeted that he wants the American people to march on Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021," Alex Jones, the founder of far-right website InfoWars, said in the footage played by the panel.

Trump "is now calling for we the people to take action and to show our numbers," he added.

In January this year, Alex Jones said he had invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination "almost 100 times" while testifying before the panel.

The panel last year issued subpoenas to Alex Jones as part of its probe into the day Trump's supporters stormed the Capitol to disrupt the certification of Joe Biden's election victory.

Alex Jones had helped organize the rally at the Ellipse that preceded the violence, Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, the Democratic chairman of the panel, said in a letter.

Thompson said Alex Jones had repeatedly promoted Trump's claims of election fraud, urged his followers to come to Washington for the rally and march from the Ellipse to the Capitol.

He also "made statements implying that you had knowledge about the plans of President Trump with respect to the rally," Thompson added.

Newsweek has contacted Kelly Jones, a lawyer representing Alex Jones, and the January 6th Committee for comment.
