She told Vice that she met him at a CrossFit gym in 2016.</p><p>She later signed up to chiropractic sessions with him and told the media outlet that Longley spoke to her about Jeffrey Epstein, Hillary Clinton, and the Obamaspopular boogeymen in the QAnon world.</p><p>"He was effectively trying to red pill me," Maria said.</p><p>Longley has also been identified via content he shared on his QAnon accounts. Three individuals, who were granted anonymity, told Vice that a profile picture of him used on his InevitableET Twitter account and an Instagram video of him reciting the QAnon Oath match the image of Longley.</p><p>A Vice review of content posted on his InevitableET pages shows that Longley has embraced many far-right views for at least four years.

In that tweet, he falsely claimed that "Trump has not been impeached."</p><p>But, following the January 6 insurrection, his Twitter account was suspended.</p><p>His banishment led him to establish the "We The Media" Telegram channelone of the most popular forums for hardcore adherents of the discredited QAnon movement.
