Not a surprise, and while a sign of President Trump’s loyalty, it also speaks to the political nature of the Obama regime’s prosecution of Sheriff Joe for doing his job. I mentioned on Fox the other day that I exected the president to do the right thing regarding this issue. And he did.
President Trump granted a presidential pardon to Joe Arpaio, the former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., on Friday. Arpaio, 85, had been convicted for intentionally disobeying a judge’s order in an immigration case.
“Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now eighty-five years old, and after more than fifty years of admirable service to our Nation, he is worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon,” the White House said in a statement.
