WHY WOULD SHE MENTION IT?

(Aug. 6, 2016) — On Saturday afternoon, the Clinton campaign, in an apparent effort to discredit Republican presidential opponent Donald Trump, reproduced a tweet of his said to have been issued “four years ago today.”
The Post & Email quickly responded to Clinton’s tweet with “A criminal investigation has declared both his BC and SS registration form fraudulent: http://mcsoccp.org/joomla/” referencing the nearly-five-year investigation launched by the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse at the request of its overseeing sheriff, Joseph M. Arpaio.
It was more than five years ago that Trump first publicly questioned why Obama had never released his “long-form” birth certificate to prove that he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii as he claims. At the time, Trump was considering entering the 2012 presidential race but ultimately decided against it.
After several months of intense pressure from Trump, on April 27, 2011, the White House released what it said was a scan of a certified copy of Obama’s original birth record held by the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) at whitehouse.gov. Within 24 hours, however, the image was declared a poor forgery by computer professionals.
In September of that year, Arpaio commissioned the Cold Case Posse to analyze the image after approximately 250 constituents approached him with concerns that if it proved to be fraudulent as some experts contended, their votes would be disenfranchised in the 2012 election.
In 2012 and prior to the election, Cold Case Posse lead investigator Michael Zullo and Arpaio gave two press conferences in which they divulged that not only had the birth certificate image been found to be a “computer-generated forgery,” but also that Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form is not authentic.
In an interview in late June, Zullo told The Post & Email that the Selective Service form is a “hard-copy forgery.”
Neither Congress nor the media has investigated the posse’s reports and extensive documentation, nor has any political figure been willing to discuss it.
In November 2013, the investigation expanded to include a former NSA and CIA contractor, Dennis Montgomery, who was given two immunity agreements by the FBI last summer and fall, respectively. Montgomery is said by his attorney, Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman, to possess evidence of massive government corruption.
Several news reports have stated that Obama was born in Kenya, while others have reported his birthplace as Indonesia. In 2007 or after, NPR and other reports, including a biography issued by his then-literary agent, were altered to say that he was born in Hawaii.
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the president and commander-in-chief to be a “natural born Citizen.”
