Responding to a Washington Post article posted earlier this month, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones warned against alleging ties between President-elect Donald Trump and the Kremlin.

The report, Jones said, "could be used inside government to trigger emergency systems under [continuity of government terms or] COG that if a major leader like the president is actually a foreign agent they can then reportedly be taken out. "

Added Jones: "And so to have the bold move of implying that a president-elect is being manipulated and controlled by the Russians is a very, very serious telltale sign that they could be thinking about bringing in outside mercenaries or other agencies to actually try to assassinate the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump, before he even gets into office. Because remember: They are incredibly desperate right now."

Jones released an emergency message to his followers on Dec. 12 claiming the CIA is fixing to overthrow Trump.

"I contacted the proper parties. I have run this intel up a lot of important, informed flagpoles. And they all concur that there is a plan — which we now see is quite evident — to try to steal the election from the American people and Donald J. Trump," Jones said in a voice memo from his car on the way to the studio. "This is done to trigger COG and other systems, where they can try to get quasi-rogue groups to believe they've got legal standing to try to basically take out Trump.
