The Latest on a North Carolina man who fired shots inside a District of Columbia restaurant while he was investigating a conspiracy theory known as “pizzagate.” (all times local):

A North Carolina man who fired an assault rifle inside a District of Columbia restaurant during his investigation of a conspiracy theory dubbed “pizzagate” has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Edgar Maddison Welch was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Washington. His attorney had asked that he be sentenced to 1½ years in prison. Prosecutors asked for 4½ years.

Welch pleaded guilty in March and acknowledged that he entered the Comet Ping Pong restaurant Dec. 4 with an AR-15 assault weapon and a revolver. He said he drove to the restaurant from North Carolina to investigate an unfounded conspiracy theory about Democrats harboring child sex slaves at the pizza restaurant.

I think he was put there in order to put the skids on PizzaGate investigators. He'll be quietly released in a few months for good behavior is my guess.

I have to agree with this. It was all staged I think! For the anger it caused.
