Alex Jones sues House January 6 committee

Conspiracy theorist and right-wing provocateur Alex Jones says he will not comply with demands the House select committee investigating January 6 has made for his testimony and records, according to a new lawsuit he filed on Monday. The lawsuit seeks to block the subpoenas and claims Jones should be protected under the First Amendment. He says that he will also decline to answer questions so as not to incriminate himself.
It lands at a moment when the committee has pushed aggressively for witnesses to share what they know about the planning of January 6 rallies and then-President Donald Trump's reaction to violence at the US Capitol -- with some key figures helping the investigation while others, especially those who are well-known among Trump's far-right supporters, refusing to comply. The committee in recent weeks has sought phone records from more than 100 people, including Jones, and sent subpoenas directly to at least 50 people. The committee has called Jones to testify on January 10, according to the lawsuit.
