The American public must show these corrupt courts that they are not going to get away with persecuting people for their free speech or for the crime of getting people elected. If we don’t do that it will embolden their criminal activity,’” says Alex Jones.

This is about the conviction of Roger Stone, …… president Trump’s former campaign adviser and longtime confidant who has been charged by federal prosecutors in connection with allegedly interfering in efforts by Congress to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential race. He has pleaded not guilty to counts of obstruction, witness tampering and perjury currently being considered by jurors in D.C. federal court.

“He’s just blindsided by the fact that they’re actually trying to put him in prison,” Mr. Jones told The Washington Times as jury deliberations in the Stone case continued Friday.

A longtime Republican consultant, Mr. Stone, 67, frequently collaborated with Mr. Jones and made regular appearances on his talk show in recent years until a court order barred him from commenting publicly about his criminal case.

Among the provisions included in the gag-order is a restriction that has prohibited Mr. Stone from “having statements made publicly on his behalf by surrogates, family members, spokespersons, representatives or volunteers.” It was not clear if the message seeking a pardon purportedly relayed by Mr. Jones would constitute a violation, and Mr. Stone’s lead defense attorney did not immediately return a request for comment.
