According to commenter Arthur, quoting Sharon Rondeau, characterizing the remarks of Mike Zullo, reporting the actions of Sheriff Joe Arpaio:
…Arpaio has dedicated ‘resources’ from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office to the investigation, whereas until this time, the Cold Case Posse had conducted its work independently, without cost to taxpayers as a result of its tax-exempt status1.

That evidence never saw the light of day (nor did the later “Reed Hayes report”). But forget that stuff about the birth certificate. That’s old stuff. This new and improved stuff is so powerful that it will not only remove the most stubborn presidential stains, it threatens the existence of everything so says Gallups via Rondeau:
Zullo announced that he has discovered, with paper documentation, ‘universe-shattering new information’ in the investigation. Gallups stated that ‘mountains of evidence’ have been found which have changed the direction of the probe. [Is that an ANAL probe? ]

I listened to the whole thing and it was nothing, like we have heard before. At least he didn’t beg for money this time.
1I hasten to point out that the Cold Case Posse’s tax exempt status is a taxpayer subsidy, since the CCP doesn’t have to pay taxes on the money they collect, and those who donate to the CCP can deduct the contribution from their income as well.
