WorldNetDaily provides us today with an update on Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation into President Obama’s birth certificate, which apparently is still going strong despite a failure to release a piece of “universe-shattering” evidence that we were first promised in 2013. Arpaio’s chief investigator, Mike Zullo, tells WND that unspecified legal issues mean that this very important piece of evidence may not ever actually see “the light of day”:
What ever happened to the “universe-shattering” revelation promised by the sheriff’s lead investigator, Mike Zullo, in late 2013?
Reached by telephone, Zullo told WND in an interview his Cold Case Posse team commissioned by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office must resolve three legal issues before the new evidence can be revealed regarding the validity of the document posted online by the White House in 2011 as Obama’s birth certificate and a subsequent investigation of its origin.
“We’ve cleared two, and the last one is problematic,” Zullo said of the legal hurdles.
“If we can’t clear it, it may preclude this information from ever reaching the light of day. It may prevent me from ever disclosing what this is. But it does not mean we are not cultivating new evidence.”
Zullo, echoing Arpaio, expressed frustration that congressional Republicans have refused to publicly take up the birther battle. He revealed that he was hopeful after meeting with Florida Republican Rep. Jeff Miller in the U.S. Capitol, but that their agreements “evaporated.”
Arpaio told WND’s Aaron Klein in an interview broadcast Sunday on Klein’s radio show that he’s continuing to investigate the birth certificate, but “once again, nobody wants to look at it right now.”
“So it’s not my problem. I did my job,” said Arpaio, referring to attempts to pass on his evidence to Congress and federal authorities.
Zullo backs up Arpaio’s statement, noting the sheriff authorized him to travel to Washington, D.C., and meet with members of Congress. Zullo said lawmakers have told him they will not look into the matter or that they would be prevented from examining it if they tried.
Zullo said that on one occasion, he was accompanied by author and radio host Carl Gallups, who arranged a meeting with his congressman, Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla.
Zullo and Gallups, who has regularly discussed the Arpaio investigation on his weekly radio show, sat directly across from the congressman in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.
“It was almost surreal being in that room discussing this very topic as Nancy Pelosi strutted by,” Zullo said.
The meeting went well, he said, and arrangements were made to move forward.
“Then, within a week, everything came to a halt and just evaporated,” said Zullo, who noted it wasn’t the only time that has happened.
