Alex Jones is offering a whopping $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who planted child pornography his InfoWars server.
On Friday’s episode of InfoWars’ the Alex Jones Show, the man himself was joined by his lawyer, Norm Pattis, as they discussed the ramifications of the malware attack.
Through the malware attack, child pornography was embedded on Jones’ server and has allegedly prompted a full Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigation. Pattis claimed that the FBI investigation began after a company tasked with screening Infowars’ emails found that 12 received emails contained images of child pornography. Pattis then said that no one at InfoWars had opened the emails or embedded files.
“These were emails that if you, me, or one of your workers had opened, we would have been subjected to five years in federal prison,” Pattis said.
Jones characteristically flew off the handle during the discussion. In his rant, Jones initially offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the culprit before self-escalating and jacking that number up to $1 million.
“I don’t have a lot of money, but I’ll sell my house,” Jones said.
Jones’ net worth is estimated to be somewhere around the $10 million range.
“If you’re trying to set me up with child porn, I’m going to get your ass. $1 million. $1 million, you little gang member. $1 million to put your head on a pike. $1 million, bitch,” Jones said.
Jones also lashed out at people who he believes could be behind the malware attack. He pointed fingers at Christopher Mattei, the man who currently represents the Sandy Hook families in their ongoing case against Jones, as well as the Democratic party–the whole party.
“I’m not into kids like your Democratic party, you cocksuckers. I don’t like having sex with children, I would never have sex with children,” Jones said.
