There’s been a lot of back and forth on Trump’s potential to pardon Sheriff Joe.
Sheriff Arpaio, America’s most loved sheriff, is anxiously awaiting to hear if President Trump will pardon him of a bogus conviction of criminal contempt by a liberal U.S. District Judge, Susan R. Bolton.
Reuters has the latest on the Arpaio pardon:
The “standard process” would be followed in considering whether President Donald Trump pardons Joe Arpaio, the former Arizona sheriff convicted last month of criminal contempt in a racial profiling case, the White House said on Thursday.
Trump hinted during an appearance in Phoenix on Tuesday that he would issue a pardon for Arpaio, who was sheriff of Maricopa County for 24 years before losing a re-election bid last year.
CNN reported on Wednesday that the White House had prepared paperwork for the pardon and quoted an administration official as saying talking points to be used after Arpaio was pardoned had also been prepared.
“I would imagine they go through the thorough and standard process, and when we have an announcement on what that decision is after that’s completed we’ll let you know,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters when asked about the reports.
She said the White House counsel played a big role in pardons and “would certainly be involved in that process and any deliberations on that.”
When Trump campaigned, he promised to return America to a nation of laws.
This would be a great first step.
Of course, some Liberals aren’t happy about it.
Joe Arpaio was convicted because he committed a crime. He should not be pardoned. https://t.co/YGvQkK6Kae
