Public life


James Achilles Alefantis, known as Jimmycomet on Instagram [6], is the owner of Comet Ping Pong and Buck's Fishing & Camping. Worldwide he is more known for his peculiar tendencies involving children than for his locally revered image and entrepreneurship. He is considered one of the "50 Most Powerful People in Washington D.C."[7] for his connections in 'high places', such as influential politicians and artists. He was the lover of David Brock [8], who owns Media Matters for America and Correct the Record, two infamous Democratic Party media organizations.

He is involved in the production of three movies,[9] one that in the synopsis made mention of "secret pizza." That phrase has since been removed from the IMDB page.[10][11]

Relationship to #Pizzagate

James Achilles Alefantis has been accused by Internet communities as having facilitated child trafficking through Comet Ping Pong. A great deal of circumstantial evidence regarding tunnels, provocative artwork, and bizarre symbolism have been cited as linking Alefantis to criminal activity (ie. the strange images posted by Jimmycomet), but there is yet to be any verified and properly scrutinized evidence to support any criminal activity has taken place.

Connection to John Podesta

Connection to Hillary Clinton

A letter Alefantis posted (on Twitter) from Hillary thanking him for helping with a fundraiser that involved the Podestas [18]

An FEC search also shows payments made to Alefantis from the Clinton Campaign and pro Clinton PACS [19] [20]

Connection to Tony Podesta

Tony Podesta is a very close associate of Alefantis, using Comet Ping Pong every year to host his birthday party. [21][Archived Version]

Tony Podesta also hosted Part 1 of Alefantis' Transformer Gallery's Collector's View Series.[22] According to Washington Life Magazine, this is a common occurrence:[23]

[Tony Podesta] regularly opens his house to casual pizza parties co-hosted by his friend James Alefantis, the owner of Comet Ping Pong. Over 200 pies emerge from the outdoor pizza oven as guests wander through the house and garden while studying his art collection.

Connection to Max Maccoby and convicted child trafficker, Laura Silsby

* interesting perspective from voat user (throwitawayn0w) : Wouldn't having Max be Alefantis' lawyer for a personal lawsuit keep him (Maccoby) from being able to testify against him, due to lawyer-client confidentiality? Would that be an incentive to HAVE the case exist in the first place

Connection to Barney Frank

Based on photos from 2009 Media Matters for America party,[35][36] Barney Frank, Alefantis and his partner at the time, David Brock, appear to know one another.

Connection to Judge Anita Josey-Herring and Edgar Maddison Welch

Anita Josey-Herring, a Bill Clinton appointee, was the judge in James Alefantis and David Brock's 2011 case where they accused William Grey of blackmail.

PDF Link: File:Grey v Brock and Alefantis Answer and Counterclaims.pdf

Josey-Herring was also the presiding judge in the case of the Comet Ping Pong shooter, US vs. Edgar Maddison Welch. The case was transferred to Judge Sherry M. Trafford for reasons that are not immediately clear.

PDF Link: File:12-7-16-Govt-Opp-to-Continuance-Welch.pdf

On odds alone, that would be at least 1 in 55 of having Josey-Herring designated as a judge, as there are currently 55 other associate-level judges in the DC Superior Court (give or take some additional judges who probably left or joined the pool between 2011 and the end of 2016, as well some fewer judges as some appear specialized in certain areas like tax law).[37]

Personal assets

Comet Ping Pong

Comet Ping Pong has been accused of being a possible hub for human and sex trafficking. Various individuals have cited the seemingly inappropriate artwork, bands, and shows supported by the restaurant and James Alefantis. It is true that many artists, bands, and performers, and particularly close ones to Alefantis at that, feature bizarre occult references and material that would not be suitable for the "family-friendly" atmosphere they portray. These events are booked by Washington D.C. entertainment provider Sasha Lord.

Known especially for its infamous Instagram page "Jimmy Comet" which featured pornography and references to pedophilia alongside pictures of young customers of the restaurant. The page was also publicly accessible to anyone on Instagram, but has been made private after the creation of the #Pizzagate subreddit. Please do not harass or stalk this account. It is for reference only.

From Voat user @oldskeptic:

Here is a video interview with Alefantis, where he says repeatedly that he serves 700 pizzas a day. That's a pizza a minute, every minute, for a solid twelve hours! Comet is sit-down only. No delivery as per his operating agreement with the neighborhood commission.


From Voat user @Yuke:

"I must be in the wrong business, clearly a couple of years in the restaurant business pays! And Comet didn't come cheap either, $1.8m in fact, more costly then than it is now [53]

I then noticed that he claimed to employ 70 people between the two establishments in DC; Comet and Buck's, and that he pays them 'a good wage' [54] [55] 70 people sounds like a lot to me, right? Regardless, if it is in fact true, then paying 70 people a 'good wage' has got to be quite the outlay. Add to that the plethora of local competition from other businesses, well, I just don't know how he does it."

Yuke goes on to point out that James Alefantis has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charity, which while charitable, doesn't seem to fit within the means businesses such as Comet and Buck's.

Edgar Maddison Welch's attack on Comet Ping Pong

There is ongoing investigation into the facts and disinformation about the attack. Please see the Edgar Maddison Welch page for more on this subject.

DuPont Underground tunnels

There is a network of underground tunnels known as the "DuPont Underground" in Washington DC. It is possible that these tunnels go under Comet Ping Pong and if they do, there are thought to be access from the restaurant to them. However, this has not been proven as no one in the investigation has ventured through these tunnels. There is a bounty posted on WeSearchR.com of over $2500 for anyone who will explore these tunnels and video tape it, with the goal of finding whether or not there are tunnels under Comet Ping Pong.

Dupont underground-and-whitehouse.png

Users from Voat's /v/Pizzagate noticed that the tunnel system connecting the White House to Camp David conveniently runs under the location of Comet Ping Pong. Considering the existence of the DuPont Underground tunnels at that location, it's possible the two may be linked in some way.

Buck's Fishing & Camping

  • in the movie - 'Chickenhawk - men who love boys' (1994) - They refer to pedos as "bucks" & an admitted pedophiles talks about taking children camping to have sex with them --BUCKS FISHING AND CAMPING [56]

Pegasus Museum

Transformer D.C.

Alefantis is the board president of Transformer D.C., a non-profit organization to promote local artists.[57]

Strand on Volta

Strand on Volta was a Artist Gallery opened by James Alefantis and former lover and Hillary Clinton Campaign director David Brock. James and David reportedly lived in a 6 room mansion together [[58]].
