Authroities want to take Alex Jones' cat because he's bankrupt


Far-right provocateur Alex Jones, who owes almost $1.5 billion in court-awarded damages to the families of Sandy Hook victims, is now accusing authorities of trying to take his cat away, because of his bankruptcy proceedings.

Jones' wife, Erika Wulff Jones, posted a bizarre video on Twitter on Thursday of her husband complaining about the authorities' attitude towards the pet.

In the video, Jones said he attended a bankruptcy hearing with Justice Department officials earlier that day, where they spent "five minutes" of a three-hour hearing talking about his cat.

"This is Mushu," Jones said, cradling the animal in his arms. He estimated the two-year-old cat was worth around $2,000.
