Trump Considering A Pardon For Ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio

On August 14 in a interview to Fox News, President Trump stated he was considering a pardon for Ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

“I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” the president said Sunday. “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.”

Arpaio was convicted of criminal content for willfully defying a court order to stop targeting Latino drivers in 2011. Arpaio was convicted in jury-less hearing and his attorneys are attempting to appeal the case arguing that a jury would not reach the same verdict.

The president has not issued a pardon as of Tuesday morning but is planning to attend a rally in Arizona Tuesday night.
