Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted of criminal contempt. President Donald Trump pardoned the sheriff on August 25th. So now Mr. Arpaio’s defense attorneys and President Trump’s Department of Justice are pushing the judge to dismiss the case…saying it’s a moot point because of the pardon. I call bullshit…the conviction and verdict should stand and become part of his legal record…the pardon only removed his punishment.
But what do you think?
