On the same day that Edgar Welch pleaded guilty to weapons charges for investigating a Washington, DC pizza place because he believed it was a front for a child-slavery ring, one of the guys who egged him on was publicly apologizing for it. And its about time.
Radio host Alex Jones, who helped propagate the fictitious pizzagate conspiracy theory that Washington, D.C., pizzeria Comet Ping Pong was a front for a child sex trafficking ring led by John Podesta, apologized to the restaurant owner, James Alefantis
