A segment on Al Sharpton’s MSNBC show deriding the findings of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation of Barack Obama’s presidential eligibility shows the White House fears coming revelations, according to WND senior writer Jerome Corsi.
Corsi, who has probed Obama’s eligibility for four years, said “it’s obvious that the White House is scared.”
The segment by Sharpton on his daily “PoliticsNation” show April 27 was an attempt to get out ahead of the news, Corsi said.
The White House is “front-running the story, putting it out through a surrogate trying to ridicule Arpaio’s investigation, because they know how much damage he is about to do to the president,” he said.
“The legitimacy of Obama’s presidency is about to come unglued.”
As WND reported, Arpaio announced March 1 in Phoenix that his volunteer investigative team had concluded probable cause exists that the document released by the White House April 27, 2011, as Obama’s birth certificate is fraudulent.
Corsi said a follow-up press conference is being planned, likely in early June, that will announce further findings he expects to be explosive.
“The White House has reason to be concerned,” said Corsi, who recently returned from a trip to Arpaio’s office.
On his show, Sharpton ridiculed Arpaio for investigating Obama’s eligibility after the White House released a birth certificate and even sold T-shirts and mugs emblazoned with the document.
“But one year later,” Sharpton said, “some people apparently don’t have better stuff to do.”
Sharpton noted Donald Trump, who was instrumental in pressing the White House to release its document one year ago, “has been rather quiet lately.”
Sharpton pointed to Obama’s performance at last year’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in which he poked fun at Trump.
Obama said: “No one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than the Donald. And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter. Like, did we fake the moon landing?”
Sharpton commented: “Ha. That was a classic clip from the White House Correspondents dinner.”
