Truth : Hillary Clinton Is Not Under Child Sex Investigation!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No Evidence Hillary Clinton Is Under Child Sex Investigation

First, let me just point out that there is zero evidence that Hillary Clinton was just named a ‘Person of Interest; in a child sex investigation. The People’s Voice certainly offered no evidence to back up its claims.

If Hillary Clinton was actually named a ‘Person of Interest’, this would have been covered by mainstream media all across the world, not announced only in a notorious misinformation website.

Right-wing QAnon and MAGA conspiracy theorists, fuelled by Russian operatives have long claimed that Hillary Clinton runs a child sex ring in the basement of a Washington D.C. pizza restaurant.

Yet, they have not been able to furnish even one iota of evidence that Hillary Clinton was ever investigated for any child sex crime.

Fact #2 : Hillary Clinton Did Not Cover Up Pedophile Ring

Instead of providing any evidence for Hillary Clinton being named a ‘Person of Interest’ in a child sex trafficking investigation, The People’s Voice linked to its old 2017 article claiming that Clinton covered up a pedophile ring at the State Department.

Not only was that report almost 4 years too late – the NBC report aired in June 2013, it misrepresented what was reported.

The NBC News segment looked at the State Department’s internal investigations into alleged improprieties by an ambassador, who was accused of prostitution and pedophilia. The ambassador, who was later identified as Howard Gutman – the US ambassador to Belgium., was said to have “routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children“.

NBC News reported that top state department officials directed investigators to “cease the investigation” into the ambassador’s conduct. However, NBC News never claimed or suggested that Hillary Clinton, who was the Secretary of State at that time, covered up any pedophile ring in the State Department.

The State Department Office of Inspector General looked into whether the investigation was mishandled. In October 2014, the Inspector General published its report, in which it said that “the suspected misconduct by the Ambassador was not substantiated“.

The allegations against Ambassador Howard Gutman was never substantiated, or proven. The Inspector General also did not suggest or claim that Hillary Clinton interfered or intervened with the investigation.

In other words – there was no pedophile ring in the State Department, and Hillary Clinton did not cover up anything.

Fact #3 : Hillary Clinton Screenshot Appears To Be Doctored

The screenshot which purportedly shows Hillary Clinton posting that “The Feds are now against me“, and “The videos are on the dark web“, appears to be doctored.

There is no evidence that Hillary Clinton ever posted this on social media, and why would she? Think about this for a moment – why would Hillary Clinton ever post publicly that videos of her alleged child sex crimes are now on the dark web?

And if that was something Hillary Clinton really posted on social media, why would The People’s Voice censor it? Isn’t that odd?

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
