Earlier this month Alex Jones’ attorneys told the New York Times that he’s attempting to negotiate an immunity deal with the Department of Justice in exchange for giving cooperative testimony about the events surrounding January 6th. There’s been no public indication that the DOJ is willing to give him such a deal, but the DOJ wouldn’t make such a thing public anyway.

In the meantime, the real takeaway is that the DOJ’s months-long 1/6 grand jury into Trump world has clearly rattled Jones, and has him exploring the possibility of selling everyone out in order to save himself. This comes even as Jones is getting crushed financially and attempting to file bankruptcy.

Now Rolling Stone says that an anonymous donor just sent Jones a million dollars through Bitcoin. This could just be from a wealthy fan who’s trying to keep him afloat – but if so, why send it via cryptocurrency?


The secrecy involved here raises the question of whether someone in Trump world could have sent this money to Jones in an effort to keep him from cutting a deal with the DOJ. It’s certainly something that the DOJ will want to take a look at. At least one former prosecutor thinks such a donation could meet the legal definition of witness tampering or obstruction of justice on the part of the donor.
