Sheriff Joe Arpaio was convicted of a criminal charge for refusing to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants.
U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton found Joe Arpaio guilty of criminal contempt of court, the culmination of a federal trial that was years in the making.
Luckily for him, we have President Trump that pardoned this great man!
After this great news, The Sheriff sets his sights on bigger things!

Former Arizona Maricopa County sheriff said Monday that he may challenge Sen. Jeff Flake for his seat in the upcoming 2018 election cycle.
“I could run for mayor, I could run for a legislator, I could run for Senate,” Arpaio told The Washington Examiner Monday. Arpaio said that he is rather certain Arizonans will ask him to challenge Flake.
“All I’m saying is the door is open and we’ll see what happens. I’ve got support. I know what support I have,” the 85-year-old former sheriff told reporters.
President Donald Trump pardoned Arpaio Friday. The former sheriff was convicted in July of criminal contempt for defying a federal court order to stop detaining individuals suspected of being in the country illegally.
The administration sang the praises of Arpaio Friday, releasing a statement following the pardoning announcement that said: “Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued 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 a worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.”
Flake has been rather critical of the president, calling his travel ban “morally repugnant.” The senator has also released a book in which he describes the Republican Party as in “denial,” when they chose to make Trump the nominee.
This man followed the law, did his job, and when Obama and Holder were in office, they enforced their agenda turning what’s right and wrong upside down and have caused havoc with the lawlessness they promote. Of course, someone who follows the law such as Arpaio is in their way so they try to take him out so they can continue running rogue over the laws of America. They have been deceitful, lying, thugs out to ruin America.
Obama could pardon drug dealers and let a terrorist go but CNN wants to make what trump does is wrong.
What do you think should he try himself in the world of politics?
