It is with sincere apologies and deep regret that GotNews is hereby issuing a full retraction of the 20 October 2016 story titled ‘BUSTED: Married @HillaryClinton Chairman @JohnPodesta Caught CHEATING With Married Woman In @WikiLeaks E-Mails’, which has been removed from the site.
In our haste to publish a breaking news story we mistakenly identified a woman named in the WikiLeaks scandal involving Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, who we suggested may have had an affair with Podesta.
We wrongly placed a photograph of her, which we obtained through public social media profiles.
The woman in question, who we will not name to prevent further distress, has never met nor communicated with John Podesta.
We deeply and sincerely apologize to the woman in question and retract the article in full.
It is no longer available and all other references to it have been duly removed.
Charles C. Johnson & The GotNews Team
