PHOENIX -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio presented results of what his volunteer cold-case posse found when they looked into the authenticity of President Barack Obama's birth certificate that was given by the White House in April of 2011.

"We believe probable cause exists that we believe forgery and fraud may have been committed," Arpaio said.

Their results showed the birth certificate did not originate in paper format as claimed by the White House.

"At the very least I can tell you this," Arpaio said. "Based on all the evidence presented and investigated, I cannot, in good faith, report to you that these documents are authentic."

The volunteers showed multiple videos [that can be seen below] that explained their findings on Thursday after Arpaio spoke.

Arpaio and the volunteers both said they were hoping the results would come back that the certificate was indeed authentic.

"My investigators believe that the long form birth certificate was manufactured electronically and that it did not originate in a paper format as claimed by the White House," Arpaio said.

This investigation was launched six months ago in August of 2011 by Arpaio after members of the Tea Party gave him a signed petition asking him to investigate the certificate.

The current controversy was thought to be over by many, but remains alive to some conservatives.
