“Were his words fallacious and did he apologize? Yes,” Greene tweeted on Wednesday. “That’s what freedom of speech is. Freedom to talk words. Political persecution must end.”
Greene, who has a history of pushing conspiracy theories about mass shootings, praised Jones and claimed he’s been “right just about more often than not” after he lost an August defamation trial for lying about Sandy Hook. Her comments after the most recent verdict echoed Jones’ failed free-speech defense.
Jones repeatedly claimed the 2012 school massacre was faked and involved actors. In point of fact, it left 20 children and 6 adults dead.
Greene was lashed on Twitter for her comments.
