Internet Users Falsely Suggest ‘Code Words’ Were Found In Podesta Emails

Fact checked
Internet sleuths have discovered apparent evidence of pedophile "code words" being used in emails from John Podesta released by WikiLeaks. 

Update: The original headline of this story misleadingly suggested that WikiLeaks had discovered alleged ‘pedophile code words’ in random emails by John Podesta. This is false. The emails are real and part of a large batch leaked by WikiLeaks, but the ‘code words’ accusation originate from a group of 4chan users who scoured the emails to find random words in Podesta’s emails and link them to the unlikely conspiracy.

There is no proof that the words found in the emails prove the existence of a ‘child sex ring’ or ‘pedophile ring’ within the Clinton campaign. We have therefore edited our headline and removed these specific claims from the article as there is no evidence to justify these claims. 

We have left the original list of words and links to the corresponding emails in tact so the reader can see for themselves where these claims originated. 

ORIGINAL ARTICLE (with false accusations removed):

“hotdog” = boy
“pizza” = girl
“cheese” = little girl
“pasta” = little boy
“ice cream” = male prostitute
“walnut” = person of colour
“map” = semen
“sauce” = orgy


I consider ice cream, its purchase, and its consumption a rather serious business. We can’t just willy-nilly toss it out and about in casual references, especially linked with the word “free”.

Lo and behold, instead of pasta and wonderful sauces, it was a lovely, tempting assortment of cheeses, Yummy. I am awaiting the return of my children and grandchildren from their holiday travels so that we can demolish them.

Hi John, The realtor found a handkerchief (I think it has a map that seems pizza-related. Is it yours? They can send it if you want. I know you’re busy, so feel free not to respond if it’s not yours or you don’t want it.

Thx for coming out. Always happy to babysit.
