Alex Jones threatens Mueller: ‘You’re going to get it, or I’m going to die trying’
Infowars host Alex Jones on Monday issued a threat toward special counsel Robert Mueller, accusing him of covering up sex crimes and suggesting he wanted to duel the former FBI chief in an imaginary gunfight.
Jones made the comments on an episode of “The Alex Jones Show,” first reported by Media Matters.
“I mean, Mueller covered up for a decade for [Jeffrey] Epstein kidnapping kids, flying them on sex planes, some kids as young as seven years old reportedly, with big perverts raping them to frame people,” Jones says in the video, referring to billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was convicted of sex crimes after being accused of soliciting multiple teenage girls as young as 13.
“Mueller is a monster, man,” Jones continues in the video. “People say, ‘Well, God, aren’t you scared of him?’ I’m scared of not manning up. I’m constantly in fear that I’m not being a real man, and I’m not doing what it takes, and I’m not telling the truth.”
Jones then pivoted to an analogy where Mueller and he were dueling cowboys, meeting “politically” at high noon for a shootout.
“That’s a demon I will take down, or I’ll die trying. So that’s it. It’s going to happen, we’re going to walk out in the square, politically, at high noon, and he’s going to find out whether he makes a move man, make the move first, and then it’s going to happen,” Jones said, miming a pistol with his hand.
“It’s not a joke. It’s not a game. It’s the real world. Politically. You’re going to get it, or I’m going to die trying, bitch. Get ready. We’re going to bang heads. We’re going to bang heads.”
It’s not clear if Jones’s words could constitute a transmitted threat against Mueller, who is currently leading the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. Threatening a federal official with violence is a class C or D felony, punishable by up to five or 10 years in prison.
Jones, a far-right-wing supporter of President Trump who has frequently accused Democrats of being “demon possessed,” has accused Mueller’s investigation of being the head of a deep-state conspiracy aimed at taking down Trump’s presidency.
Jones has backed a number of conspiracy theories over the years.
The Infowars founder is currently being sued by families of victims of the 2011 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, after which Jones claimed that the attack was a false-flag operation. He is represented by Marc Randazza and Jay Wolman of the Las Vegas–based Randazza Legal Group.
