Mike Cernovich, a self-described “New Right” media personality who often peddles conspiracy theories, said that after reading the declassified memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes, he wondered if the FBI would kill Infowars radio host Alex Jones.
Today, a classified memo that Republicans spent the last week hyping as undeniable proof that the national intelligence community worked to undermine President Trump was finally released to the public. Despite the fact that many conservative media figures have expressed disappointment over the memo’s seeming failure to expose mass corruption, pro-Trump conspiracy theorists predictably have had a field day.
In a live stream video this afternoon, Cernovich said that reading the memo disturbed him and made him believe the FBI would stop at nothing to frame innocent people for crimes. He then pondered whether the FBI would take steps in the future to frame him, or perhaps Jones.
“Are they going to frame Alex Jones, maybe? Maybe they’ll execute him at this point. What won’t they do? That is the only question now that I have about our justice system is what won’t they do?” Cernovich said. “We know they’ll frame people. We know that they’ll commit perjury. We know that they’ll lie in warrant applications. We know that they framed Gen. [Mike] Flynn. What won’t they do?”
Cernovich then brought up conspiracy theories about the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich and insinuated that the FISA memo released today may somehow validate the idea that Rich’s murder was actually a political assassination.
“As of right now, no question is off-limits,” Cernovich said. “As of right now, there is no question we cannot ask.”
