Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is threatening to “dish all the dirt” on former President Donald Trump due to his recent public statements in favor of vaccines. During the recent segment of Jones' radio show Infowars, he told his audience that it was time to "move on” from the embattled former president.

Jones insisted that their previous impression of the former president appears to have been incorrect. He also warned Trump supporters that Trump would not be the one to save them.

“Yeah, we all wish Trump would do the right thing, but listen, I’ve got the inside baseball on Trump," Jones said. "He doesn’t know what’s going on, and I’m not even defending Trump, I’m just saying we’ve got to move on.”

“In fact," he added, "You know what ... Maybe to get Trump’s attention, ‘cause I don’t even get this from Roger Stone, I get this from people directly in Trump’s camp,” he continued.“

Maybe I should just dish all the dirt — you know what, you know what — I am going to dish it all on Trump next hour.”

Jones went on to explain the reason for his attack on Trump. Although he claimed the measure isn't a form of retaliation to hurt the former president, he claimed to offer a "pathetic" depiction of him.

“It’s not to hurt Trump, it’s so people can know how pathetic he is, when you think he is playing 4D chess, going to save you, and he’s not!”

“He’s not a bad guy, but he doesn’t know what he’s doing," Jones continued. "He’s surrounded by bad advisors.”

In a Monday court filing, the Justice Department asked a federal court not to unseal the affidavit showing probable cause for the warrant to search Mar-a-Lago, giving reasons that underscore the hot water Donald Trump appears to be in.

Disclosing the affidavit now would, according to the filing, “cause significant and irreparable damage to this ongoing criminal investigation.” It would do that by revealing, “among other critically important and detailed investigative facts: highly sensitive information about witnesses, including witnesses interviewed by the government; specific investigative techniques; and information required by law to be kept under seal.”

When Donald Trump revealed last Monday night that the FBI had “raided” his Mar-a-Lago resort and residence, Fox News had an asset on its payroll uniquely positioned to provide its audience with insight: The former president’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, is a Fox contributor. But unfortunately for the network’s viewers, over the past week she's been using her network platform to mislead them.

Members of the Trump orbit, including Lara Trump’s husband, Eric, deployed to Fox last week offering the expected furious defenses of the former president and denunciations of the FBI’s probe. But if there’s any value whatsoever in putting a former president’s relative on staff, surely it is in the aftermath of such an event, when she might have both rare access to credible information and a willingness to reveal it.
