I count at least four reasons as to why Obama would release the document now:
1. To please Trump and the birthers
This is not a very believable reason. To do this now, when it could have been done 3 years ago is not a fair explanation of why now and not before.
Does Trump really have that much pull in politics? Business maybe, but he's no politician. So why is it such an important thing to take down Trump?
Wouldn't he have done the same to himself eventually?
2. To qualify for 'birther' legislation in the States
This is reasonable, but why now rather than when/if it was needed? Perhaps to say that it has been in the public sphere, but that just gives the
public a chance to prove it is a fake. Even if it is real, why bother waiting so long? And if waiting this long was no problem, why not wait until the
moment a state legislature asks for it rather than Trump?
3. To 'annihilate' Jerome Corsi's book before it has a chance to spread wildfire.
This is perhaps the most plausible, as this book's title is "Where's the Birth Certificate?" It makes it fairly obvious that this book is now
"yesterday's news," however if the book contains other information that would be harmful to Obama then this will only continue to perk curiosity.
So this also seems unreasonable as a sole cause to release the birth certificate.
4. The federal reserve's first press conference in 98 years needed a distraction
The fact that the birth certificate coincided with the same day as the fed's first ever press conference meant the media had a nice distraction from
the economy and to focus on patting each other on the back for proving the birthers wrong. The media could talk about the press conference for five
minutes, spin it in the fed's favor, and then go on a ten hour "Trump the Don" marathon, throw about five hours of the Royal Saxe Coburg Gotha
wedding and you have yourself a full media day, forget the fed ever made the statement in the first place.
Now only does this seem the most plausible as the reason why the document was released now, but it also shows that the fed is willing to handle any
bad publicity it brings up onto Obama so long as the fed is shielded from publicity. The fed lets Obama destroy one of his enemies, while the fed can
hold the 'proof' over Obama. And if it is a fake, then it is next to blackmail for Obama. It goes to show you the real power structure of the
