Connection to James Achilles Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong
Tony is connected with many figures in the "Pizzagate" scandal. He is a very close associate of James Achilles Alefantis, using Comet Ping Pong every year to host his birthday party. [Archived Version]
[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.
Tony Podesta is seen in a Washington Life article at a James Alefantis exhibition at his Strand on Volta gallery.[CITATION NEEDED]

Artwork owned, sponsored, or displayed by Tony Podesta
Tony Podesta is an avid lover of art and owns many pieces from many artists, as well as supports the greater art community. However, #Pizzagate researchers observed a disturbing trend among the various artists he is connected with including Biljana Djurdjevic, Margi Geerlinks and Anna Gaskell. These artists works are not just provocative, but almost entirely centered around sexual abuse and exploitation of minors. He features bizarre sculptures throughout his home, such as the Arch of Hysteria by Louise Bourgeois and human-pig hybrid statues. He also has showings of what he describes as, "complicated films", in a specially-designed basement.
Connection to Marina Abramovic
Connection to the Washington Post
Podesta was employed by the Washington Post, while running the Podesta Group. The Podesta Group and the Washington Post also had key "revolving door" hires from one another. For more information, see the page in this wiki for the Washington Post.
Tony Podesta and John Podesta are co-founders of the Podesta Group, an enormously powerful lobbying organization in the United States with a long list of clients. Many clients and interests they represent have been accused of human rights violations.
