Alex Jones producer throws Megyn Kelly under the bus in wild Sandy Hook testimony

InfoWars producer Daria Karpova testified during the Alex Jones defamation trial on Thursday and did her level best to imply journalist Megyn Kelly was the reason that Jones resurrected his Sandy Hook theories.

Jones is looking down the barrel of a lawsuit filed by the families of Sandy Hook victims who are seeking damages after he promoted theories that the shooting in 2012 was a false-flag operation and a hoax.

F. Andino Reynal, Jones’ attorney, asked Karpova why, after choosing to be silent on Sandy Hook for several months, he began to speak out about the tragedy again in 2017.

“What if anything caused that to change in 2017?” he asked.

“I believe that was when Megyn Kelly had reached out to Alex Jones, asking him to appear on her show,” Karpova responded.

“How did Alex respond to the invitation by Megyn Kelly?” Reynal prodded her.

“At first he — I mean he knows it’s — they lie, but she convinced him that it’s not going to be about Sandy Hook because he explicitly did not want to continue to bring — bring up Sandy Hook and aggravate parents in any way,” Karpova claimed.

“She convinced him that this was gonna be a friendly interview — that Sandy Hook was not gonna come up and that, um, it — she just wanted to get to know him as a personality and as a man,” she continued.

Karpova went into detail during her testimony on why Kelly traveled to Austin to interview Jones. She noted that the former Fox News journalist stayed in town for several days for the filming. Reynal asked about the moment Jones and his team realized the interview was not what it was supposed to be.

“I believe that he didn’t realize that until it was already time for the interview and it was already taped,” Karpova stated.

“She made it all — she made it all to be about Sandy Hook and she trapped — she set a trap for him that he fell into,” Karpova testified, attempting to lay the blame on Kelly.

The attorney then asked Karpova about the staff at InfoWars responding to the interview after Jones was “entrapped” by Kelly.

“I mean, everyone was very upset about it. There were people who did not want him to do the interview in the first place, but you really cannot tell Alex what to do. He’s gonna do what he wants to do. Um, and the people were just realizing that it was a really, really bad mistake that he had done,” Karpova replied.

The interview aired sometime around Father’s Day and the producer noted that Jones was “absolutely horrified by” the timing.

She also said that Jones’ well-being and health have suffered as a result of the backlash from his comments on the Sandy Hook massacre, according to Business Insider.

“This whole Sandy Hook thing has weighed heavily on him because people don’t know the shooter’s name, but they think Alex Jones murdered those children,” Karpova testified, adding, “People hearing the words Sandy Hook, they automatically think Alex Jones.”

“I think his mood, his health, his general demeanor, is always stressed out … He can’t relax,” since InfoWars was “deplatformed” by YouTube and other social media platforms, Karpova remarked on the stand.

Jones was adamant about what he said and when he said it concerning Sandy Hook.

Jones spoke with FOX 7 Austin outside of the courthouse proclaiming he believes the Sandy Hook massacre happened.

“I’ve been saying I believe Sandy Hook happened for six years. What they did is put out edited tapes where I would say ‘some people believe Sandy Hook is totally fake,'” Jones asserted.
