Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is seeking a deal with Jan. 6 investigators to details events surrounding the riots in exchange for a deal with the Justice Department that would provide him immunity from prosecution, the New York Times reports.
Jones’ lawyer, Norm Pattis, said his client has sent a formal letter conveying “his desire to speak to federal prosecutors about Jan. 6.”
Pattis maintains that Jones was not engaged in “criminal wrongdoing” when he helped lead a group of chanting Trump supporters to the Capitol building on Jan. 6th.
The decision to grant Jones immunity won’t be an easy one for investigators. One the one hand, it is possible that Jones has deep inside knowledge of how Jan. 6 originated and played out; on the other hand, he might know very little and would be giving him immunity in exchange for nothing useful to them.
Though receiving a guarantee of immunity from federal prosecutors will be no easy feat for Jones, his attempt to receive one suggests that the investigation could be gaining significant momentum.
Ali Alexander, a top organizer of the Stop the Steal rally that preceded the riots at the Capitol on Jan. 6th, said recently that he received a subpoena from a federal grand jury that is seeking information on numerous people involved in Jan. 6, ranging from rally organizers to members of Congress and associates of then-President Trump.
Alexander said that he intends to comply with the subpoena and speak with investigators about his role and knowledge of that day’s events.

Alex Jones is such a chronic and congenital liar that his testimony may be useless, as no one will believe him.
1. Evidence from an “informer” who agrees to say what the prosecutor wants in return for a favor (such as immunity from crimes they have committed) are often unreliable. In fact, many countries ban such evidence and refuse to honor requests for extradition based on such evidence. BTW, halacha also bans it. Once the “informer” has confessed to being a criminal, how can anything they say be trusted, especially if it was “paid” for by a grant of favors.
2. Trump is very vulnerable now since his views on foreign policy (“America First” isolationism, preferring Russian imperialism over Ukraine), while shared by many libertarians and radical left-wingers (all of whom tend to dislike Trump for other reasons), conflict with an overwhelming majority of Republicans who believe that what makes America great is a willingness to lead the free world is opposing tyranny.
One thing you can be sure of is that if he does turn on Trump in exchange for immunity he will immediately go from being a fringe conspiracy theorist to an impeccable source of credibility….
The criminal rats are beginning to abandon the sinking trump ship
This is no way implies Alex Jones ‘turning’ on his friend Trump. The article title baits readers in an inciteful way and isn’t appropriate.
It’s not enough that Jones is a nut job. Now he’s a rat, fighting for his life, trying to dump it all on DJT.
Of course! He’ll make up anything. He’ll even sell his mother!

What a joke. Who’s a bigger conspiracy theorist, Jones or the committee? Maybe they can do a deal — he will tell them the “Truth” about Jan 6, and in return they’ll tell him the “Truth” about Sep-11. As Chazal would put it, מצא מין את מינו
