Roger Stone received nudes of Alex Jones’ wife.
In the most recent bizarre twist of many involving Stone, lawyers for the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones accidentally gave his legal adversaries a nude photo of his wife that he had texted to the conservative political operative Roger Stone, an attorney involved in the matter has acknowledged.
“I don’t know if that was consensual,” said Bankston, who recently won a nearly $50m judgment against Jones for the family of a six-year-old boy killed during the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, which for years Jones falsely claimed was a hoax aimed at forcing nationwide gun control reform.
According to The Guardian, the lawyer representing Sandy Hook parents, Mark Bankston, received the accidentally leaked photos and noted “if it wasn’t consensual, Mrs Wulff Jones should know about that, and there might be something that needs to be done about that.”

Wulff Jones later told Insider she was “unaware that this occurred” and was upset that Jones “took privilege to send the image to someone without my knowledge.”
