Did Marines Just Arrest Oregon AG For Treason?!

Did US Marines just arrest Oregon AG Ellen Rosenbaum for treason?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!


Claim : Marines Just Arrested Oregon AG For Treason!

On 2 May 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) which claimed that US Marines just arrested Oregon AG Ellen Rosenbaum for treason!

As usual, the article is long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : Marines Did Not Arrest Oregon AG For Treason!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Fact #1 : Marines Did Not Arrest Oregon AG Ellen Rosenbaum!

No matter what you think of her, Ellen Rosenbaum is an elected official – the Attorney General of Oregon.

If Ellen Rosenbaum was ever arrested for any reason, it would have been reported across the United States, if not the world. However, there has been no legitimate media report of US Marines or any authority arresting the Oregon AG!

Unsurprisingly, the Real Raw News article offered no evidence to back up its claim, just rambling nonsense.

Fact #2 : US Marines Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that US Marines were sent to arrest civilians like Ellen Rosenbaum. In fact, US Marines cannot even arrest military personnel!

Civilians like the Oregon AG would have been taken into custody by the state police, or the FBI, depending on the nature of the crime committed. US military members would never be involved in such arrests.

Even if Ellen Rosenbaum was somehow a member of the US Marine Corps (she is not), she would have been arrested by US Marine Corps Military Police, not the marines themselves!

Fact #3 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a fake news website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

That disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I debunked earlier:
