Today, Sheriff Joe Arpaio concluded a multiple-years-long investigation into President Barack Obama's long-form birth certificate. During his press conference
, he presented information from two forensic investigators who concluded that Obama's long-form birth certificate is not authentic, but had portions forged (essentially, copied and pasted) from Johanna Ah'Nee's certificate. The information was presented during a detailed press conference, however copies of the evidence were not given to the media or posted online after the conference. Arpaio said that they would be presenting all this and additional evidence to the federal government for further investigation. At the end of the conference, he did not take questions, stating, "We're not going to answer any questions. There's more sensitive information that we have regarding this matter and I'm not going into it."
President Barack Obama announced on Thursday that he will be having a press conference
at 2:15 p.m. Eastern at the White House on Friday. It's not known yet if this conference is in response to Arpaio's claims.
