A Texas lawyer in the Sandy Hook defamation lawsuit against Alex Jones admitted that the real goal of the trial is not to seek compensation for damages, but to silence him and shut down Infowars forever.
Attorney Mark Bankston argued that Alex Jones, in addition to paying compensatory damages to the families in the Connecticut case, should “no longer be in public life” as a result of the trial.
“People have been like, ‘you’re out to destroy Alex Jones.’ I don’t want to destroy him, I don’t care,” Bankston told Channel 5. “If he wants to work at Safeway or manage a Sprint store, I don’t care. I feel the right amount of justice is, you should not be able to commercially market yourself as a public figure anymore.”
