Reporter Who ‘Debunked’ Pizzagate Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charges

It seems to me that those who deny something the loudest are often guilty of that very thing..

A former ABC reporter who once bragged about “debunking” Pizzagate just pled guilty to child pornography charges.

Former ABC reporter James Gordon Meek faces at least 5 years in prison after pleading guilty to possessing and transporting child pornography.

Meek was in the news last year after he allegedly went missing from his home after it was raided by the FBI.

He could face up to 40 years in prison.

The Post Millennial provided details:

Ex-ABC reporter James Gordon Meek is now facing at least five years in prison after a guilty plea to child pornography in Virginia on Friday.

Meek, 53, pled guilty to transporting and possessing child pornography and abuse material. The charge carries a mandatory minimum of five years prison time, and 40 at the top end.

Meek made headlines last year after he supposedly went missing after the FBI raided his home. At the time, he was writing a book on the Biden Administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.

The New York Post provided more on the charges against Meek:

Under federal sentencing guidelines that come with his guilty plea, Meek is likely to face far less than the max at his Sept. 29 sentencing.

Meek, a once-acclaimed national security journalist, was hit with the federal charges in February roughly 10 months after the FBI raided his Arlington, Va., home April 27, 2022, seizing his electronics.

Meek resigned from ABC News and went off the grid immediately after the raid.

On his phone, the feds say they found three conversations in which Meek allegedly expressed a desire to sexually abuse children — and they found he had both received and sent photos and videos of child pornography.

In one troubling message, Meek allegedly asked someone on a chat app, “Have you ever raped a toddler girl? It’s amazing.” And in another message he shared a perverted fantasy of “abducting, drugging, and raping” a 12-year-old girl.
