Trump 'Seriously Considering' Pardoning Criminal 'Sheriff Joe' Arpaio

Share

The first accidental retweet was not as damning as the second but still freakish in its own right as it was of a response to a Fox & Friends story about Trump pardoning former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Trump, who deleted his retweet without explanation, has called Arpaio a "great American patriot".

Twitter user Mike Holden was replying to a Fox News article on the potential pardon of Joe Arpaio.

"President Trump would be literally pardoning Joe Arpaio's flagrant violation of federal court orders that prohibited the illegal detention of Latinos". The former sheriff has also gained infamy for what were widely viewed as inhumane detention practices.

What Arpaio deserves is to be forced to wear pink underwear and live in a tent in 145-degree heat like he used to make prisoners in his jail do.

Arpaio faces up to six months in jail if Trump doesn't pardon him.

Google "America's most racist sheriff" and Joe Arpaio's Wikipedia page is the first entry that pops up. He eventually lost his bid for reelection as sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona in November 2016. "The framers of the Constitution clearly never contemplated the Court usurping the roles of Congress, the executive, the judiciary, and a jury, all at once", Arpaio's team said in the court filings.

Trump critic Walter Shaub, the ex-director of the Office of Government Ethics, connected Trump's announcement of a potential Arpaio pardon with his sluggish response to condemn the white supremacists, according to the Hill. He willfully violated a federal court order and must be held accountable.

"I might do it right away, maybe early this week". "I think, I believe he may not even know about this, which will become a different story in a couple days, with a bigger, much bigger picture than just me".

Arpaio, who spoke in favor of Trump at the Republican National Convention, has a sentencing hearing scheduled for October 5. He cited his long service in law enforcement and said many Arizona citizens respected his approach to crime.

He later updated his biog on Twitter to describe himself as "Officially Endorsed by the President of the United States".

"I didn't ask for it, but if he's going to offer, I will accept, because I'm not guilty".
