AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones blamed the various claims he's made over the years, including that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a hoax, on "psychosis."

The Austin American-Statesman reports Jones described his conspiracy thinking as a kind of mental disorder during a deposition taken earlier this month for a Texas lawsuit filed against him by the parents of a 6-year-old who was among the 20 children and six adults killed in the Newtown, Connecticut, attack.

During the March 14 deposition in Austin, Jones said he "almost had like a form of psychosis" where he thought events were staged.

But during the deposition, Jones continued to voice conspiratorial suspicions about the shooting, saying some people had told him there was a cover-up.
