Alex Jones accused of sponsoring $500,000 to the January 6 riot and admitting that Trump ordered storming of the U.S. Capitol but this is FALSE!
Alex Jones was falsely accused of sponsoring the storming of the U.S Capitol on January 6.
Far-right radio-host Alex Jones was accused of sponsoring the U.S. Capitol siege after he said his media company paid half a million dollars to D.C. Trump’s rally on January 6 and that Trump wanted him to lead it. The Twitter users immediately made wrong conclusions and suggested that InfoWars founder admitted the Wednesday storming of the Capitol Building was ordered directly by Donald Trump.

But this is as stupid as it's COMPLETELY FALSE! Those Jones’ words were simply insulated from the context.
The fatuous and insubstantial accusations came after the video initially posted on Twitter by Jones’ estranged wife, Kelly Morales. In this video Jones claims he paid $500,000 to sponsor President Donald Trump’s Wednesday rally and that the White House asked him to lead the march of the Trump supporters to the Capitol. But they don't take into account that the money was spent on organizing the peaceful rally.
“No one would book the Ellipse, no one would book the other areas. No one would pay for it. We went and paid for it,” Jones said in a video posted to his InfoWars website Thursday.
“Thank God a donor came in and paid like 80 percent of it,” he added. “Because it cost close to half a million dollars, with all the equipment, all the stages and the rest of it. Port-a-Potties, you name it.”
Jones said that initially the Secret Service were going to pull him out of the first row and escort him through the crowd of the Trump supporters so he could head a procession on the Capitol.

Alex Jones admit he paid $500,000 for that rally to go down and that he got his marching orders from Donald Trump. This is the most incompetent crime family I've ever seen. They literally sponsored terrorism and paid for the murder of a federal officer.— Fifty Shades of Whey (@davenewworld_2) January 9, 2021

And this is what Jones said:
“The White House told me three days before, we’re going to have you lead the march,” Jones said.
“And Trump will tell people, go and I’m going to meet you at the Capitol. But there was a million people outside,” he explained. “So by the time I got out there … there were already hundreds of thousands of people ahead of me marching.”
And these are the words, the brainwashed Twitter users and Trump haters got hooked to and developed the suggestions that Trump was personally behind the storming and the siege. These guys just don’t know or maybe forget what really happened during the storming and how it actually started. There is another video of Alex Jones explaining everything.
“I was told about three days before January 6 that President Trump wants you, Alex Jones, to lead the march. Now, why is that important,” Jones says in the video.
“As soon as he [Trump] was in the middle of his speech, he said, please march peacefully… OUTSIDE the event and you couldn’t get into the Capitol… And I was told by the White House, explain this is peaceful, be respectful to the Capitol police and the others, as Trump is always pro-law enforcement.”
Believe it or not, you decide. But for those who say they saw Jones on the Capitol ground marching with the demonstrators to storm the Capitol, watch the full video on InfoWars and clarify for yourself how he got there, what he was doing, and what actually went wrong on that day. Then understand that President Trump did not order the chaos and violence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
