Mark Bankston, an attorney representing a Sandy Hook family suing far-right conspiracy theorist Jones for defamation, dropped a bombshell last week when he revealed that Jones’s own lawyer had inadvertently handed over his phone records, including two years of text messages belonging to the InfoWars blowhard, and then failed to take steps to keep them out of court. Well, Bankston just dropped another bombshell about Jones.
During an interview on the Young Turks progressive news show, Bankston revealed that Jones texted a nude photo of his wife to conservative political operative Roger Stone, an adviser to former president Donald Trump.
The seemingly farcical – but entirely true – development was the latest bit of fallout since one of the attorneys for a family suing Jones for defamation revealed last week that Jones’s own lawyer had inadvertently handed over numerous text messages belonging to the far-right provocateur and then failed to take steps to keep them out of court.
Bankston, who won a nearly $50m judgment against Jones, also expressed concern about whether Jones had obtained permission from his wife, Erika Wulff Jones, to send that photo to Stone or anyone else.
“I don’t know if that was consensual,” Bankston said. “And if it wasn’t consensual, Mrs. Wulff Jones should know about that, and there might be something that needs to be done about that.”
