Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA), speaking at CPAC, baselessly claims Infowars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is being “politically persecuted” in the Sandy Hook defamation trial. A Texas jury on Friday added an additional $45.2 million to the damages that Jones must now pay to the parents of a Sandy Hook shooting victim as punishment for repeatedly broadcasting claims that the school shooting was a hoax. Jones was already ordered $4.5 million in damages by the jury.

MTG: Somebody like Alex Jones who did say some things. But yet, he is being politically persecuted right now and being forced to pay out millions and millions of dollars. And and no one, no one agrees with what he said. But what we're tired of is the political persecution. I'd like to know when the Democrats and the liars and the media and the people that cancelled all of you and me on big Tech, when are they going to pay all of us millions of dollars, right?
