Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka has continued to promote a conspiracy theory that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead as a result of the Supreme Court's return to justice.
On Friday, NBC News reporter Ben Collins wrote: "Now that RBG will be released soon, the conspiracy that she's secretly dead will only change." Too many people – not just QAnon people ( where did it start), but also guys like Seb – Expect many strange and very close ears to prove that it's a double old lady body. "
"How is there a" public "appearance behind closed doors? Let the games begin!"
Ginsburg, 85, was missing from the court since surgery to remove two cancerous nodules from her left lung in December. CNN reported that Ginsburg had gone to court for a closed-door conference on Friday, its first such appearance since its operation.
While Democrats worried about the health of justice (she fell and fractured three ribs in November), others took advantage of the time spent in Ginsburg to presume that "there is no reason for it. she was really dead.
In his absence from court, QAnon conspiracy theorists had spread the idea that Ginsburg had passed away and that the Democrats were hiding his death to prevent President Donald Trump from appointing a third judge to the Supreme Court.
Gorka had already promoted the plot on January 30th.
Fox and friends helped fuel the plot last month by releasing a graph showing that Ginsburg was dead. The show is apologetic for the mistake, but online commentators have capitalized on the mistake to promote their claims.
QAnon supporters advocate a broad, nebulous and ever-changing set of claims that include the idea that Trump and his special advocate, Robert Mueller, work together to arrest pedophiles and criminal political figures while uprooting "the state deep".
They say that an unidentified character, known as "Q", has a high security clearance and reveals highly classified information about the internal workings of the government.
Proponents of pro-Trump theory think that Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the presidents before Trump have engaged in molestation and other crimes.
Believers defended the idea that "deep state" figures had attempted to shoot down Air Force One and that Trump would send his enemies, including Clinton and Obama, to Guantanamo Bay, according to The Daily Beast.
In August, Michael Lebron, known as Lionel Online, met with Trump at the White House, CNN reported.
