As far as defeated candidate Hillary Clinton, her fellow Democrats and the liberal media are concerned, the Pizzagate controversy is 'fake news'. But there are those who believe it is real and that the authorities need to investigate the issue further.
Dozens of people gathered in front of the White House on Saturday asking the government to investigate the Pizzagate conspiracy theory that links a pizza restaurant to a child sex ring allegedly run by Hillary Clinton. For these Americans, the issue does not fall in the fake news category, and needs to be investigated further.
Pizzagate believers talked to the crowds that were gathered at the Lafayette Park. Several banners with strong statements were also carried by some people. Some of the banners read:
"We Demand a Criminal Investigation Now!" and " Terms of Surrender :Release All Children".
There were entire families in attendance, along with their kids. Some wore shirts that says pizzagate conspiracy theory is not fake news, some bore the face of Clinton's campaign chairman supposedly also behind the scandal, John Podesta.
On Friday, Edgar Madison Welch, 28, pleaded guilty to two weapons charges for the incident in December when he walked into the restaurant Comet Ping Pong and fired shots. He said then that he was looking for evidence to support the belief that claims that the said restaurant had underground tunnels where children were allegedly trafficked. The site Infowars apologized to the restaurant owner James Alefantis for its supposed part in spreading the pizzagate conspiracy theory.
President Trump also happened to be in town when the pizzagate believers staged their rally at the White House.
