Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has blamed George Soros after he was ordered to pay $50 million in damages over comments he made about the 2012 shooting in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

Jones said in a Friday broadcast that Soros had joined other “operatives” in coordinating the trial, though did not specify any names. He also accused Judge Maya Guerra Gamble of being a “blue-haired SJW” and claimed she “altered the record of the trial.”

“This is beyond any kangaroo rigged court ever,” Jones claimed without evidence.

GEORGE SOROS SAYS IT’S NOT HIS FAULT VIOLENT CRIME IS ON THE RISE

Jones alleged that Gamble had turned off the livestream of the trial at certain points when his lawyers were speaking in an attempt to discredit him. He also said she was “coordinating with the corporate media” who were present in the courtroom covering the trial.

The conspiracy theorist also denied that his lawyers handed over a digital copy of his cellphone to the opposition team, saying that he willingly handed over a copy of the phone. A Sandy Hook lawyer claimed on Wednesday that members of Jones’s legal team “messed up” and sent over a file believed to contain all of the Infowars host’s text messages going back two years.

The Infowars host’s accusations come right after he received a punitive damage verdict of $45.2 million from the jury on Friday. The total of the punitive damage verdict is in addition to the $4.1 million in compensatory damages he must pay to Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, the parents of a victim in the school shooting.

The trial over the past week is the first of three trials that Jones will face in relation to his claims that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax. The other two are set for September, one in Texas and one in Connecticut, with eight families represented in the Connecticut trial.

On Wednesday, Jones conceded that he believes the shooting was “100% real” and that it was irresponsible to declare the shooting a hoax.
