Q is the self-applied codename of an anonymous imageboard user claiming to be leaking cryptic classified information online for their followers to decode and interpret. The poster's username implies that they hold a Q clearance, a U.S. Department of Energy security clearance. QAnon followers believe Q is a team of military and U.S. government insiders revealing classified information to the public in preparation for the "Storm," when thousands of Deep State members and their collaborators will be arrested. The true identity or identities of the Q poster is unknown.
