Trump Pardons Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Tyler Durden's picture

After weeks of speculation whether Trump would pardon sheriff Joe Arpaio - who on July 31 was found guilty of defying a court order barring officers from stopping Latino drivers on suspicion they were in US illegally, bringing his tenure as a crusader against illegal immigration to an end - as he hinted at the recent Phoenix rally, or if he would, as the NYT claimed, not interfere in the legal process, moments ago - in what is now a record-setting Friday night for the sheer barrage of news - the White House announced that Donald Trump would pardon sheriff Joe Arpaio.

President Trump Pardons Sheriff Joe Arpaio


Today, President Donald J. Trump granted a Presidential pardon to Joe Arpaio, former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. Arpaio's life and career, which began at the age of 18 when he enlisted in the military after the outbreak of the Korean War, exemplify selfless public service. After serving in the Army, Arpaio became a police officer in Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas NV and later served as a Special Agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), formerly the Bureau of Narcotics. After 25 years of admirable service, Arpaio went on to lead the DEA's branch in Arizona.


In 1992, the problems facing his community pulled Arpaio out of retirement to return to law enforcement. He ran and won a campaign to become Sheriff of Maricopa County. Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio confirmed his life's work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration. 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.

In immediate response, Sheriff Arpaio told NBC that he believes he is vindicated by Trump's pardon, and looks forward to sharing his story.

Curious for more? Here is the NYT with "Why Trump Can't Pardon Arpaio" although a just as interesting, if missing, read would have been "why Bill Clinton can't pardon Marc Rich. "

Now the presidential medal of freedom.....

For all the GS stooges in the administration, sucking up to the worst of mankind in Saudi Arabia, and endless war mongering, Trump delivering a overhand right, right in the face of Clinton voters.

That feels good.....

So, like Clinton pardoning Marc (((Rich))) then?


Wut? It only took a paltry half-a-million to buy off Bubba Klinton.


Ya nooowah!...a lot of people say (((Rich))) was a Mossad agent, so basically Klinton pardoned a tax cheating, traitorous Mossad double agent for only a half million in cash, errr, ummm, "donations" most of which was spent on his "presidential library & massage parlor".

Oh be still my palpitating heart...does Antifa know about any of this? ;-)

Lot's more than that.  Mrs Rich had to sleep with Hillary.

Antifags don't know about anything that occurred before they were born.

And most don't know who sired them!

Oh so true. Those angry white antifa men never had dads. It is so evident. Raised by angry white moms who hate their own people.

And I'm a female. And I can see what white single moms have done to their children, especially the boys.

  I think you're conflating seperate topics here. But that's what libtards specialize in.

More of an authoritarian statist neocon. With a huge dose of self-serving showmanship. Him and his generation of McCain warmongers are long overdue for...well I was gonna say retirement but the grave is their next stop.

All these down votes for a sensible truthful comment. There seems to be a different consensus altogether at the Gorka firing article next door.

Next, Trump should pardom Obama for the crime of claiming to be a US citizen.

This is the best thing that Trump has done thus far.  Whether or not he KNOWS this is yet to be determined.  He can only play this indigenous base so far with these placating gestures.  If he fails to follow through on an obvious national scale, he will justifiably lose alll of their support.

I want Trump to deliver on what he promised on the campaign trail but I am a hopeless cynic when it comes to politicians

I know, but Bill Clinton's a powerful man and above the law it seems.

If his actions are an example of being a sadistic thug, then count me in a million times over.

I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do…

Would like to hear the Sheriff's story.

Yes! Sheriff Joe for mayor of my town. Thank you Mr. President Trump. Next step is to hire Allen B. West and Ron Paul to clean out this rat's nest. Dismantle the ninth circuit court and render it useless, that is your path to victory.

Sadly, only the swamp invested Congress can do that.
