On Thursday, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said he was turning over the results of a multi-year investigation of President Obama’s birth certificate to the DOJ in the hopes that the matter will be further investigated. Arpaio was joined by lead investigator, Mike Zullo, in a press conference to “set the record straight.”
“I listened to this five years ago,” stated Arpaio referring to the results of the initial investigation, “and I asked one thing: show us the microfiche, show us the document. I haven’t see it.”
“I am turning this over to the DOJ. Maybe some members of Congress will hold some hearings. Regarding this matter – you know – I kind of look at this; being a federal guy for thirty years, if they can hold hearings — and I am not trying to be sarcastic, I am just trying to send a message – if you can hold hearings on under inflated footballs, why can’t you hold one on this? I can’t believe it,” stated Arpaio. “Look at our evidence. Just look at it.”
Arpaio concluded, “This is tough for me. Sometimes I get diarrhea of the mouth, but I am going to tell you right now, we are not going to answer any questions. There is more sensitive information that we have regarding this matter and I’m not going into it,” concluded Arpaio.
The birth certificate document in question for President Barak Obama was released by the White House in 2011 following the demands from the public to show proof of citizenship. Arpaio’s team claims that new evidence includes forensic analysis showing the characters on the document were pieced together from secondary sources.
In August of 2011, the Surprise Tea party met with Sheriff Arpaio and presented him with 242 signatures of Maricopa County citizens asking for an investigation into whether President Obama’s official birth certificate, presented on the White House website, is authentic or a forgery. Sheriff Arpaio agreed to look into the matter after it was believed the document displayed by the White House was a fraud and affected the American public, which includes the citizens of Maricopa County.
The overwhelming forensic evidence shows the posted document is nothing more than a “created” document – pieced together using another source document. The original source document used in creating the fraudulent birth certificate is in fact an official Hawaiian Birth Certificate belonging to Johana Ah’nee. Evidence shows there are 9 separate elements of forensic artifacts that were lifted and place directly on the Obama birth certificate in an apparent attempt to make it appear authentic.
The forensic evidence was verified by two different highly credentialed nationally and internationally respected digital document experts who live on two different continents. Neither of these experts knew each other or the fact that both were being utilized to look into the documents, however they both arrived at the same forensic conclusions in this case.
Not only were we unable to clear the document, but as you will see today the opposite is true.
Sheriff Arpaio stated in a press release, “My concern was not where the president was born, but whether the document presented to the people was a fraud.”
Mike Zullo stated in that press release, “All we have ever wanted was the truth in this matter, with the great hope that the document was indeed a valid representation of an original document. But we had to follow the evidence. We let the evidence determine the direction of the investigation – it is what we always do in any legitimate investigation. This one was handled no differently.”
