On 23 January 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that US Marines just arrested former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly for treason!

Truth : US Marines Did Not Arrest John Kelly 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 : 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:

Everything posted by Real Raw News must be regarded as FAKE NEWS, until proven otherwise.

Fact #2 : John Kelly Was Not Arrested

This is really silly, but it has to be said – former White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly was not arrested for treason or any other reason.

If he was really arrested, it would have been reported globally by the mainstream media, not just by a known fake news website. Yet, no legitimate media outlet reported such an amazing story?

That’s because it never happened. It was all made up.

Fact #3 : Jake Tapper Didn’t Interview John Kelly In January 2024

A quick check of Jake Tapper’s X feed (formerly Twitter) showed that he never interviewed John Kelly through the whole of January 2024.

The last time John F. Kelly said anything publicly appears to be in October 2023, when he released a statement confirming much of the 2020 reporting by Jeffrey Goldberg that Donald Trump expressed disdain for veterans and the war dead.

Fact #4 : US Marines Cannot Arrest Civilians

It is really silly for anyone to claim that US Marines were sent to arrest a civilian. John F. Kelly was once a US Marine Corps general, but he retired in 2016, and has been a civilian since then.

Even if John Kelly was still a serving member of the military, he would not have been arrested by his own Marines, because US Marines are not even empowered to arrest military personnel! He would have been arrested by US Navy Master-at-Arms and/or the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS), not the marines themselves.

Civilians like former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly 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.
