Roger Stone, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump and an early adviser to Trump’s 2016 campaign for president of the United States, appeared on a pro-QAnon YouTube channel last weekend and told the audience that he hoped the conspiracy theory was true.
The QAnon conspiracy theory posits that Trump and his administration are working behind the scenes to uproot and prosecute a network of satanic pedophiles operating within the United States federal government, entertainment industry, business world and media. Followers of the conspiracy theory believe that cryptic riddles authored by an anonymous source—“Q”—and posted on far-right internet forums contain high-level intelligence about Trump’s supposed covert operation and clues meant to awaken “patriots” to the truth about their governments. The FBI considers the QAnon movement a domestic terror threat.

The overlap of Q supporters with Trump’s base of support is not a coincidence.
