Here’s an excerpted section from Arpaio’s July 31 interview at TruNews:
Bruce Walker: One last question, on the subject of your ongoing investigation of Mr. Obama’s identity issues. Is there anything new developing in that case?
Arpaio: Well, it’s not his identity. It’s the birth certificate, a document that we are convinced is a fraudulent document, government document. That’s all I’ve been launching an investigation, not where he came from, and we’re still working at that. When you have a crime, you like to know who committed it, so we’re still working it. It hasn’t gone anywhere. People think I dropped it, no—been working it for two and a half years, but you want to make sure you have the proper evidence.
Bruce Walker: There has been speculation that your team is close to identifying the individual who fabricated the birth certificate that was placed on the White House web site.
Arpaio: You know, we have our ideas. I want to make sure we cross the t’s and be able to prove it. I know; I have my ideas. I can’t say it. I want to prove it. You know, we’re still working it; it’s not gone. We’ve come up with other sensitive situations that probably could be worse than the birth certificate, but once again, you gotta try to prove this—but nobody will take it anyway. I’ve talked to the whole world about having hearings and looking at this birth certificate. Nobody wants to talk. The media keeps covering up on it. I can’t believe this is happening in our country, that nobody wants to talk to us when we got evidence.
Bruce Walker: Do you foresee that the Department would issue a final report? Is there a possibility that there would be a referral to a grand jury for an indictment?
Arpaio: Well, we’re working on that. We’re trying to get somebody or some people interested in doing something, so a lot of options out there. But you know what? I’m the law-enforcing guy. I can’t prosecute. That’s up to prosecutors, or if Congress doesn’t want to look at it, should I turn it over to the Justice Department? I presume there would be a little conflict of interest there.
Bruce Walker: Pat Boone made a comment that he expects that some major announcement may be announced by September. Any possibility that this could happen by September?
Arpaio: Well, it’s the possibility. Really can’t… I’m not trying to play games, you know, this is a sensitive thing that we’re doing. I’m a sheriff, but I do have 30 years as a federal official in the Department of Justice, so I imagine I have a little credibility, not just some sheriff talking about it; I do have a background, and I guess we’re the only law enforcement agency in the United States that ever decided to look at this, or any law enforcement agency.
Bruce Walker: Well Sheriff, when you’re ready to make a statement, we will give you all the time you want to do it.
It sounds pretty much like what we have heard before except a confirmed possible for something in September.
