Infowars host Alex Jones is petrified that the Department of Justice is coming for beloved ragdoll cat Mushu, following the various damning verdicts he received in the lawsuits brought the families of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre.  

Jones, who is bankrupt and owes $1.5 billion to the Sandy Hook families, made his latest claims in a video posted on Twitter by his wife, Erika Wulff Jones, on Thursday. During the clip, Jones cradles the $2,000 pedigree as it mews and tries to escape. 

Jones accused the DOJ of ‘harassment’ over the cat and stated: ‘The deal’s broke, you aren’t getting the cat. This is next level. What? You want my children next? You want to sacrifice my children or something?’ 

‘They spent probably five minutes of the meeting that was over three hours long, on my cat. They wanted to know if assets were hidden in the cat,’ Jones said while admitting that the feline cost $2,000. 

The conspiracy theorist believes that the DOJ is ‘very serious about the cat and its value and they may want the cat for Sandy Hook families.’ He’s claimed he can’t pay the sum he’s been ordered to hand over, and fears feds are now looking to seize his assets – including Mushu.

‘It makes me really upset for this country. Now they want my cat. The line in the sand is, you cannot have my cat,’ Jones added. 

The video was also shared by Jones’ attorney Ron Filipkowski. 

Ragdoll cats are known for the gentle, calm and sociable demeanor with an almost ‘dog-like’ devotion to their owners and are a ‘perfect companion animal,’ according to Pet Plan.  

The far-right host also said that the cat was named by his daughter. Mushu is the name of the sidekick in the 1990s Disney animated movie, Mulan. 

Last April, Jones attacked Disney for sexualizing children on an Infowars broadcast in which he was joined by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. 

‘This is supposed to be the happiest place on Earth, a place where innocence is celebrated. But it seems to be the place where innocence is actually under attack,’ Jones said. 

Documents released by a Texas court earlier this month showed that Jones is still spending $100,000 a month despite owing more than a billion dollars and filing for insolvency. 

In addition to his spending, Jones, 49, is thought to have around $10 million in assets, including multiple properties, an arsenal of weapons and two boats. 

Following the first Sandy Hook trial, Jones was accused of transferring millions of dollars from Infowars to friends and family. In February, a bankruptcy filing in Texas found that he had given his parents $1.3 million.  

Jones’ claims have been met with huge support on Donald Trump’s TruthSocial network. 

‘That’s right Alex, NEVER f*** with my animals,’ wrote one fan. Another wrote: ‘Tell them to get f****d. They are owed nothing.’ While another said: ‘Hang in there! God sees the whole picture! We stand with you!!! Beautiful kitty.’

On Gab, one fan offered advice. He wrote: ‘Time for a quick divorce, let your wife loot you first, and then make up with her later.’

‘I’m so sorry. Who are these corrupt judges allowing this!!?,’ wrote another Gab user. 

Twenty first graders and six educators were killed in the shooting on Dec. 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut.

Relatives of eight victims, as well as an FBI agent who responded to the shooting, sued Jones and his Austin, Texas-based company, Free Speech Systems, over the hoax claims, alleging defamation and infliction of emotional distress. 

The plaintiffs testified during a monthlong trial about being threatened and harassed for years by people who deny the shooting happened. Strangers showed up at some of their homes and confronted some of them in public. 

People hurled abusive comments at them on social media and in emails. Some received death and rape threats. 

Last week, the parents of a six-year old child killed in the 2012 massacre asked a U.S. bankruptcy judge on Tuesday to allow them proceed to trial against right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who claimed for years that the shooting was a hoax.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Lopez said at a hearing in Houston on Tuesday that he will consider their request at a March 24 court hearing.

Because Jones and his company are bankrupt, lawsuits against them cannot proceed without the permission of a bankruptcy judge. 

 Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa’s son Noah was killed in the massacre. 

‘Pozner and De La Rosa deserve their day in court,’ not only to determine the value of their legal claims against Jones, ‘but also as parents determined to protect Noah’s legacy,’ their attorneys wrote in a January court filing.

Jones has argued the trial would ‘accomplish little’ at a “great deal of unnecessary expense.’ 

He estimated a two-week trial would cost $600,000, reducing the amount of money available to pay Pozner, De La Rosa and other Sandy Hook parents with legal claims against him.
