Fake News Conspiracy Kook Alex Jones Attempts to Whitewash His Role in the Pizzagate Affair
Alex Jones has been busy scrubbing content from his Infowars website which pushed the false and dangerous conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton’s campaign trafficked children through through the Comet Ping Pong restaurant, a Washington D.C. pizzeria.
An Infowars devotee, Edgar Maddison Welch, fired an assault rifle inside the pizzeria as he tried to “self-investigate” the conspiracy theory.
FBI special agent Justin Holgate stated in a criminal complaint that Welch said he sent a video on the night of December 1 with the message “Watch PIZZAGATE: The Bigger Picture on YouTube” to a friend before the shooting. The video was produced by Infowars.
