'This Is Not A Joke': The DOJ Wants to Take Alex Jones's Cat For Sandy Hook Families
Last year, Alex Jones was ordered to pay over $1.4B to the families of Sandy Hook victims as a result of three defamation lawsuits filed against him. Jones filed for bankruptcy soon after, since he doesn't have over $1.4B. This means he has to disclose all of his assets in court, and his filing stated he has between $1-$10M in assets.
One of those assets the DOJ is reportedly very interested in? His $2000 cat.

Yes, the United States Department of Justice wants to take Alex Jones's cat away from him as punishment for a conspiracy theory. Jones explained, "The [Justice Department] spent probably five minutes of the meeting, that was over three hours long, on my cat. This is Mushu [...] and they wanted to know if assets were hidden in the cat [...] They were very serious about the cat and its value, and they may want the cat for the Sandy Hook families."
You can dislike Alex Jones. But this is insane. He has apologized countless times to the Sandy Hook families and admitted he was wrong. But the courts and the government are relentless, and now they want to take his cat. It's clear they're trying to make him an example of what happens to conservatives who step too far out of line.
It's also laughable to argue Alex would've bought a $2000 cat to hide money in. You'd think he'd go for something a tad more luxurious, no? Bu they know that, of course. The whole thing's a joke.
Jones went on, "The deal's broke. You guys aren't getting the cat. This is next-level, this is harassment, no one's ever heard of this, my lawyer's never heard of this...this is just insane. And I mean, what, do you want my children next?"
Careful, Alex. Don't give them any ideas.
