We speak to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) as he prepares to leave office after four years at the helm.
A North Carolina man armed with a rifle walked into D.C. pizza restaurant Comet Ping Pong on Sunday afternoon. He fired shots before he was arrested on a number of gun and property destruction charges. The gunman claims he was “self-investigating” allegations that have taken root online about the restaurant’s involvement in a Hillary Clinton-backed child sex trafficking ring. The claims have proven false, but show the far reach and real-life implications of political conspiracy theories in local communities. We talk with neighborhood business owners and residents about the reaction to the episode and their plans moving forward.
