Although it doesn’t necessarily mean that Alex Jones, Roger Stone, and other wing nuts who got involved in the Jan. 6th attack on the Capitol Building, the DoJ and FBI just wants to investigate what role, if any, they played. At this point, officials want to understand what the rioters thought— and who may have influenced those thoughts— which could be critical to showing their intentions at trial. Both Alex Jones and Roger Stone continually spewed Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen from him.
“We are investigating potential ties between those physically involved in the attack on the Capitol and individuals who may have influenced them, such as Roger Stone, Alex Jones and [Stop the Steal organizer] Ali Alexander,” said a U.S. official, who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a pending matter.
All three amplified and intensified Trump’s incendiary claims that the 2020 election was illegitimate in the weeks leading up to the riot. But Stone and Alexander have directly credited each other with inspiring and planning the pro-Trump Stop the Steal campaign, with Alexander saying he came up with the idea and helped organize the Jan. 6 rally that drew Trump supporters to Washington. Stone and Jones also promoted the extremist groups Proud Boys and Oath Keepers and had preexisting business or personal ties with members the government has charged with coordinating and planning certain parts of the breach or with violence at an earlier Trump rally, records and documents show.
