But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Today, for Giving Tuesday, a generous donor will TRIPLE your donation, making it three times as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Trump Allies Roger Stone and Alex Jones Subpoenaed by January 6th Panel

HeadlineNov 23, 2021

The House panel investigating the January 6th Capitol insurrection has subpoenaed five more allies of former President Trump, including long-time Republican operative Roger Stone. At least six people who were part of the mob that entered the Capitol reportedly worked as security for Stone and were linked to the far-right Oath Keepers militia group.

Also subpoenaed was Alex Jones, the far-right conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host. This month Jones was found liable for damages in lawsuits brought by families of the 20 children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. For years Jones spread false reports that the shooting was a government hoax and the victims’ families were paid actors, resulting in online harassment and death threats for Sandy Hook families.
