Alex Jones’ Infowars Host Charged in Trump Riots

Speaker 1: We have kind of an interestingnlittle wrinkle or substory in the January 6th Trump riots. We know, of course, about hundreds of defendantsnwhose cases are now somewhere in the legal system and going through. We’ve started to see some of the first sentencesnseveral weeks ago. We saw some of the first sentences for thenTrump rioters who were charged. We now have another prominent individual whonhas been charged. This is this is actually quite interesting. Many of you remember Infowars. This is Alex Jones conspiracy website. Their content is banned from a number of differentnmainstream platforms, including YouTube, I think Facebook. I don’t remember the whole list. I think they’re banned from Spotify. But the show continues. Funding comes from suppliments. And I think from Mike Pillow and maybe a couplenof other brands, you have to really look pretty hard for the show. But it is out there. And one of their hosts is a guy named OwennShroyer. He has been charged and reportedly is turningnhimself in today. This is a Reuters report which says U.S. prosecutorsnhave charged a Texas man. Who hosts a talk show tied to the conspiracyntheory website Infowars with unlawfully breaching the U.S. Capitol grounds during the Januarynsix riot by supporters of then-President Donald Trump, Olwyn Shroyer unlawfully entered anrestricted area at the west side of the Capitol during the deadly rampage that interruptednthe formal congressional certification of Biden’s victory. This is based on what prosecutors wrote innunsealed court papers from Friday. The hosts he hosts a talk show associatednwith Infowars called The War Room with Owen Shroyer. It’s a daily show. These are misdemeanor charges, violent entrynand disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Let’s look at video here of Owen Shroyer explainingnthis. This he learned this apparently from his lawyernduring a live broadcast on Friday. Take a look at this. The deal. Speaker 6: Ladies and gentlemen, yeah, a couplenhours ago. I was informed by my attorney very serious. But there is a warrant out for my arrest. With allegations involving January 6th. And I will have to turn myself in Monday morningntoday. There’s a lot of questions, some of the answersnto some I don’t. I’m not going to be getting into more of thisntoday on the air. Smart. And. I plan on. Declaring innocence of these charges, right,nbecause I am and so there’s some other stuff going on, too. But that’s the deal. Oh, boy. And so I’m not going to I’m not going to commentnany further on this. I’m not going to take any questions on thisntoday. Speaker 1: But the questions thing, do theyneven take questions on this show, like who’s going to force them to answer questions onnthis show? Speaker 6: And I was informed by my lawyernthat there’s a warrant out for my arrest right now and that I have to turn myself in by Mondaynmorning. So that’s just that. Probably shouldn’t even be on air right now,nbut we’re going to go ahead and do a broadcast anyway. Speaker 1: OK, and that’s probably the correctninstinct. He probably should not be on the air if thisnis if this is what is going on. So there’s only Shroyer. Another relatively high profile target ofnthe investigation has turned up multiple alleged charges against them. And we’ll follow it. These are misdemeanor charges. It is less likely he will do prison time. It is more likely he has better access tonlawyers, particularly if Alex Jones is going to help him out. But on Shroyer turning himself in as far as he nis saying nhe will ndo today,
