Did Alex Jones threaten to push pro-Trump political organizer off stage? Infowars founder denies allegations
As per the police report, the threatening incident had taken place outside the Willard Intercontinental hotel
An allegation that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones had threatened to push a pro-Trump political organizer off stage at an event that occurred in December is being investigated by Washinton, DC Police. This information as per a report comes from "people familiar" with the incident. Kylie Jane Kremer, the executive director of the organization titled Women for America First filed the allegation with the DC police telling them that on December 11 "someone" had "threatened to shove her off the stage at her event" that was scheduled to be held the next day, as per the incident report. The Women for America First group had helped aid in post-election rallies, with the publication reporting that one of the rallies was the one that was held south of the White House before the infamous Capitol riots that had taken place on January 6.
The incident report by CNN does not name Jones specifically, although "four sources familiar with the incident" – three of whom remain anonymous – said that Jones had made the alleged threat. One of the sources identified is named Scott Johnston, who according to reports was driving Kremer on that day - he told the publication that he was witness to Jones' threat against Kremer and already has spoken to the police that are investigating the incident.
Did Alex Jones threaten to push pro-Trump political organizer off stage?
While a spokesperson for the Washington Metropolitan Police Department told the publication that the alleged "threats to do bodily harm" is under investigation, he or she did not confirm if Jones, Infowars founder, was a "subject of the investigation." In fact, even a spokesperson for Women for America First named Chris Barron barely gave any details, saying, "the police report speaks for itself." As for if Jones did it, his attorney named Marc Randazza told the publication that his client denies the allegation and did not further give any details about if Jones had spoken to police about them.
As per the police report, the threatening incident had taken place outside the Willard Intercontinental hotel. Johnston revealed that while he was helping the organizers with the Women for America First group he had witness Jones "confront" Kremer on December 11. He also said that he "remembers" Jones said that he would push Kremer off a stage. After Johnston had driven Kremer to the hotel, he said, "He [Jones] kept yelling, 'I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna do it. I'm going to take over." Jone's words were taken as a threat by Johnston because reports indicate that he had seen Jones "rush a stage" at an earlier event. The next month in January, Johnston said that he received a call from a detective, but had spoken to police about the incident after it had occurred. The call, in January, was to ask Johnston to give any more information he had on Jones.
The publication further reveals that this is not the first time Jones had been in hot water for use of "threatening language." Back in July, a sanction by the Connecticut Supreme Court affirmed was made against Jones due to statements had he had made about an attorney for Sandy Hook families. The court had revealed that while speaking on a radio broadcast, Jones had said, "One million dollars to put your head on a pike." Furthermore, the court's chief justice had written, "We recognize that there is a place for strong advocacy in litigation, but language evoking threats of physical harm is not tolerable."
