Following news of Flynn’s resignation, Clinton took to Twitter to support comments made by her former State Department senior adviser, Philippe Reines, who tweeted a link to Dominos’ job website claiming Flynn and his son had a “pizza obsession.”
Clinton retweeted Reines’ tweet, and followed up by stating Flynn was suffering “the real consequences of fake news.”
During the 2016 presidential campaign, the Clinton camp was dogged by online conspiracies tying staffers and DC pizza restaurant Comet Ping Pong to an underground pedophile network.
Dubbed “pizzagate,” the conspiracy began when the organization Wikileaks released emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, which online researchers claimed contained multiple ambiguous references to pedophilia.
While Flynn never promoted the pizzagate rumors himself, his son Michael Flynn Jr. did do so back in December, saying, “until Pizzagate proven to be false, it’ll remain a story.”
Radio host Alex Jones discussed parts of the “pizzagate” conspiracy in a massively popular interview on the Joe Rogan podcast recently.
