He further affirmed that his office will proceed with the Cold Case Posse investigation into the authenticity of Barack Obama’s birth certificate and his eligibility to be president, which is scheduled to release preliminary findings in February.

In the Obama eligibility investigation, Arpaio’s investigative team has amassed hundreds of pages of documentation and taken testimony from dozens of experts in preparation for a final phase of field investigation.
