The fallout from Wikileaks dump of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s emails hasn’t ended yet. According to a dedicated group of Internet sleuths with a lot of time on their hands and a predilection for conspiracy theories that go straight to the top, Hillary Clinton and her top aides, Podesta included, are “implicated” in a child sex trafficking ring that involves the DC elite, an occultist, and Comet Ping Pong, a DC pizza parlor.
