A “Worldwide Citizen Investigation” of Pizzagate

By Marc Fisher, John Woodrow Cox and Peter Hermann

What was finally real was Edgar Welch, driving from North Carolina to Washington to rescue sexually abused children he believed were hidden in mysterious tunnels beneath a neighborhood pizza joint.

What was real was Welch — a father, former firefighter and sometime movie actor who was drawn to dark mysteries he found on the Internet — terrifying customers and workers with his ­assault-style rifle as he searched Comet Ping Pong, police said. He found no hidden children, no secret chambers, no evidence of a child sex ring run by the failed Democratic candidate for president of the United States, or by her campaign chief, or by the owner of the pizza place.

What was false were the rumors he had read, stories that crisscrossed the globe about a charming little pizza place that features ping-pong tables in its back room.

The story of Pizzagate is about what is fake and what is real. It’s a tale of a scandal that never was, and of a fear that has spread through channels that did not even exist until recently.

Pizzagate — the belief that code words and satanic symbols point to a sordid underground along an ordinary retail strip in the nation’s capital — is possible only because science has produced the most powerful tools ever invented to find and disseminate information.

What brought Welch to the District on a crisp Sunday afternoon in early December was a choking mix of rumor, political nastiness, technological change and the intoxicating thrill that can come from running down a mystery.

His actions Sunday in one of Washington’s wealthiest neighborhoods reminded Americans that last month’s election did not quite conclude the strangest political season in the nation’s history. Welch did not shoot anyone in the disturbance on Connecticut Avenue NW, but he delivered a troubling message about the shattering of trust in a troubled time.

On Oct. 28, FBI Director James B. Comey told Congress that he was reopening the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. New emails had been found on a computer belonging to disgraced former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Two days later, someone tweeting under the ­handle ­@DavidGoldbergNY cited ­rumors that the new emails “point to a pedophilia ring and ­@HillaryClinton is at the center.” The rumor was retweeted more than 6,000 times.

  1. I hope you are bringing this as an example of WaPo attempted cover-up, Robert.

  2. What was real was comet pizza owner posting pictures online of a 4yr girl bent over and taped to a table by her wrists with a man standing behind her. Clearly it appeared as sexual inuendo.

    What was real was the picture comet pizza guy put on his public instagram holding a baby with the twitter commet of #chickenlovers

    What was real was comet pizza styled as a "kids" restaurant had a band play there called Majestic Ape who can be heard in a recording talking about sexual stuff when someone yells "Don't forget children!" to which he laughs and replies, "Everyone has their preferences".

    Artwork of people holding bloody decapitated heads with headless bodies lying below.

    Comet pizza owner brought this all on himself by his PUBLIC instagram pics. Then down the rabbit hole people went. The gunman is in all likelihood a false flag to burry this investigation. People are getting very close to the elite. Jimmy Savile was protected in england and the elite pedophiles here are being protected now.

  3. Can you say psy-op.
    This is all BS. Hagelian Concoction to justify more removals of peoples constitutional rights.

    You are missing a lot Robert.

    1. It is just too much to be a psy-op. There is legitimately enough evidence to warrant a full scale investigation into podesta and the CF for child trafficking in haiti. That investigation would likely expose many people in govt. The order has been given to shut this down as can be seen by HRC coming out of hiding to babble about "fake news".

      The reaction to the wikileaks was to be a crack down on free speech and a censorship of the net similar to china. That would have been HRC 100 day plan. Now the plan is trying to be implemented about pizzagate instead but the question is, is trump on board?

    2. Word I get (George Webb on YT) is DJT has his own skeletons via his association w/ an underage girl at one of J Epstein's parties on Long Island 20yrs ago.

  4. So some fuckin dude who works in Hollywood drives 350 miles with a loaded AR-15 rifle and busts into Comet at 3 pm and he doesn't find anything? The fuck kind of laughable piece of "evidence" against the pizzagate conspiracy is this?
