Fact check: False article claims Barack Obama was ‘arrested for espionage’

An article circulating on social media claims that President Barack Obama was arrested on Nov. 28 for espionage. This is false. The fabricated article includes segments of a press release by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) on Aug. 17, on the arrest of a former CIA officer.

The article [snip] was published on Nov. 28 by a site describing itself as a Canadian conservative news site, called The Conservative Beaver.


A Google search of the statements in question brought up a DOJ press release here , about the detainment of Alexander Yuk Ching Ma, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer who was arrested on Aug. 14. The release, however, makes no mention of Barack Obama.


Reuters recently debunked the claim George Soros was arrested, also published by The Conservative Beaver [snip].
