Better to see the conviction overturned on appeal. It would take some heat off the prez and prove that the judicial system works, at least part of the time.
Still, I’m glad Trump raised the issue in yesterday’s speech.
Good. This sheriff was unlawfully prosecuted in the first place.
Why does he have to justify this pardon in so much detail? Did Obama ever have to explain his pardons of drug dealers and traitors to anyone?
When Arpio wouldn't back down, the judge went on a vendetta including denying a constitutionally guaranteed trial by jury.
The damn judge should be held accountable for judicial misconduct.
He ought to sign it live on TV.....................IN THEIR FACES.............................
Just saw, his attorney said they are appealing AND they’re going for a jury trial.
Since CNN lies all the time, I need to get a grain of salt for this report.
This would be so great!
Ping to “CNN has learned” (leak says) that Trump’s pardon of Arpaio is drafted and the talking points are drafted, too!
I have met Sheriff Joe personally, work-related charity community events. He is a good Catholic family man, has truly given his life to REAL public service. His job as sheriff was 24/7 all year long, he and his wife gave up their lives to serve the public. In his “spare” time, he did a lot of work raising money for and finding homes for abused animals.
Sheriff Joe was not doing “immigration sweeps,” he did crime sweeps which happened to involve lots of criminal illegal aliens. He was enforcing immigration laws that Obama and his corrupt administration were breaking. Some hack Rat-tard judge charged him with contempt of court and did not allow him to have a jury trial. She knew if he had a jury trial, he would be acquitted.
The prosecution of Sheriff Joe was a 100% corrupt political witch hunt by the Obama administration.
