Oh boy, buckle up folks, because it’s time for another wild ride on the misinformation train! This time, a Facebook post is spreading like wildfire, claiming that the U.S. Delta Force swooped in and arrested Matthew Graves, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, on charges of treason. Talk about a juicy scandal! But hold your horses, because this claim is about as accurate as a cowboy with a blindfold on.
Let’s dive into the facts, shall we? Graves, in an interview with the House Judiciary Committee, did mention receiving threats. That’s no surprise considering the high-stakes cases his office has been involved in, like the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol. But nowhere did he mention being hauled off by the Delta Force for treason. I mean, come on people, let’s use some common sense here!
But wait, there’s more! The Facebook post goes on to suggest that Graves is an illegitimate prosecutor because our beloved President Joe Biden is apparently illegitimate too. It’s like a conspiracy theory cocktail with a sprinkle of treason on top! But sorry conspiracy theorists, that claim is as flimsy as wet tissue paper. Let’s not forget that it was the American people who gave Biden the keys to the White House, fair and square. So, let’s leave the wild accusations at the door, shall we?

And if you thought that was the end of the Facebook post’s wild ride, hold on tight, because we’re not done yet! According to the comment section, Graves’ wife, Fatima Goss Graves, supposedly has “personal ties” to Vice President Kamala Harris and other Democratic lawmakers. Cue the dramatic music! But hold your horses once again, because this so-called “undeniable conflict of interest” sounds like nothing more than a desperate attempt to create drama and sow doubt. Nice try, comment section warriors, but I’m not buying it.
Now, where did this juicy bit of fiction originate from? It turns out, the buck stops at an article on the website called “Real Raw News.” Ah, yes, the perfect place for trustworthy and reliable news, if by “trustworthy and reliable” you mean “humor, parody, and satire.” Seriously, folks, this website even has a disclaimer on its “About Us” page stating that its content is not to be taken literally. So, no, the Delta Force did not swoop in like action heroes and slap the cuffs on poor Graves.
But hey, let’s not let the facts get in the way of a good story, right? It’s always fun to stir the pot with wild accusations and baseless claims. It’s what keeps the rumor mill churning and the internet buzzing. But as responsible citizens, let’s do ourselves a favor and fact-check before we start spreading tales that would make even Pinocchio blush. Stay informed, stay skeptical, and stay away from the Delta Force drama, my friends.
