The claim: Government contractors form a “shadow government” responsible for an anti-Trump plot, orchestrating global events
This past weekend, a conspiracy theory-laden video, “What they don’t want you to see,” was posted across social media platforms, racking up millions of views in a matter of days.
The video opens with the title image “ShadowGate,” the title which InfoWars correspondent Millie Weaver advertised the project as on her website on August 3.
The nearly 90-minute video rife with disinformation was produced by Weaver. Weaver was recently arrested alongside her boyfriend after being indicted by an Ohio grand jury on charges of robbery, tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, and domestic violence, according to Fox News.
USA TODAY reached out to Weaver for comment.
The video is filled with false claims and insinuations, centering on the notion that a cabal of federal contractors is using advanced data collection techniques to engineer global events
