One day after Donald Trump was convicted of 34 felonies in his 'hush money' trial, a court-appointed officer overseeing the Infowars bankruptcy apparently went rogue on Friday and tried to seize and shut down Alex Jones' studio without a court order, despite having a reported "path with the [bankruptcy] judge to continue on for years."

On Saturday, Jones held a four hour X space, in which supporters including Gen. Mike Flynn, Steve Bannon and Roger Stone commented on the situation. All three suggested that Jones stand his ground and peacefully resist. 

According to commentator and attorney, 'Viva Frei' (David Freiheit), the court-appointed Chief Restructuring Officer (CRO) in the Infowars bankruptcy, Patrick Magill, "showed up to lock the place down," adding "and apparently in the absence of a court order."

"This is going to be Infowars' last show, because I learned yesterday that they were going to padlock the door and kick us out last night," Jones said during the Saturday space.

"They are trying to shut us down," Jones told us when reached for comment.

A CRO is typically appointed during times of significant financial stress, and is tasked with overseeing the restructuring companies in bankruptcy. On Saturday, Jones suggested that his legal team had come to terms with the judge in the bankruptcy proceedings regarding a long-term timeline for transition, and was instead surprised with an ambush by Magill to seize his studio.

"They want us shut down because in bankruptcy and what was happening we have a path with the judge to continue on for years, and the judge has signaled that. So, different groups involved in the bankruptcy that will be exposed soon have literally made a move to shut this place down and end my show," Jones said.

In March, tensions came to a boil between Jones' legal team and Magill, after a company managed and partially owned by Jones' father, PQPR Holdings Limited, LLC asked the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas to replace Magill with a new CRO - days after accusing Magill of acting unprofessionally and in a dysfunctional manner.

PQPR has been accused of receiving millions in payments from Jones' Free Speech Systems while families of Sandy Hook Elementary School students attempt to collect $1.5 billion worth of legal judgements against Jones and Infowars. In a court filing, PQPR slammed Magill's decision to replace the company's lead bankruptcy attorney with someone new, after the CRO accused attorney Ray Battaglia of hindering progress on the bankrupcy.

Jones says Magill is trying to "obviously and maliciously" entrap him, per Frei, in order to "facilitate the shutting down of Infowars."

Gen. Mike Flynn (Ret.) suggested that this was part of a play for the ruling party to stay in power and cripple opposition voices in advance of a potential NATO-instigated false flag in Europe in order to trigger Article 5 and spark war with Russia.

"They're looking for big excuses to stay in power and shut the election down," Flynn added.

In February, the Sandy Hook families voted 100% in favor of a Chapter 11 plan for Jones that would see to the liquidation and redistribution of his property and cash. In December, Jones proposed a settlement that would pay Sandy Hook families at least $5.5 million per year for a decade, however the plaintiffs called the offer "woefully short."

Last week Jones obtained approval to sell his Texas ranch for $2.8 million, which will be placed into escrow in order to pay for legal expenses.

What Went Down

According to Frei, whose summary Jones says is "an accurate breakdown," Magill "was trying to frame Alex Jones" by allowing the Infowars host to personally pursue contracts for sponsorships.

"What apparently happened is, this guy Magill, the CRO, was trying to frame Alex Jones - saying 'hey Alex, I'm not going to pursue signing contracts for sponsorships. But you've got some. Maybe you just wanna pocket that money - knowing damn well that if Alex says yes to this, well then they'll shut down Infowars for committing criminal fraud," said Frei. "Alex Jones is not an idiot... he knows that they tried the same schtick over and over again, and he says 'no.' And apparently he's been recording a lot of this."

"It seems that they are in fact, and it would appear to be, premia facie, unlawfully and in violation of their fiduciary duties to the creditors, trying to shut down a profitable enterprise that is Infowars, in detrement to the people who are owed money. Because they don't care about those people... their goal was to shut Alex Jones up, and to shut Infowars down. And they're doing this two days after Donald Trump was convicted on 34 counts of rubbish," Frei continued, adding "It's not a coincidence."

"It's 2024 people. Donald Trump is getting convicted on bogus felony indictments, and two days after that the most popular populist voice that resulted, arguably, in Donald Trump getting elected in 2016, is now getting shut down unlawfully. They're going to be in court Monday, but this is what's going on," Frei concluded.


Jones broke into tears on Saturday, saying "We're going to beat these people. I'm not trying to be dramatic, but it's been a hard fight,"adding "I've been targeted for abuse. I was duped by someone. Federal files in secret have claimed that I'm committing crimes. This was untrue, of course[...]This may be my final performance."

Jones has received an outpouring of support over his situation.
