Pardoning Sheriff Arpaio

Cal Thomas, Washington Times

The president’s pardon of Mr. Arpaio is a far cry from those granted by Messrs. Clinton and Obama. He was correct in citing Mr. Arpaio’s age and service to the country among his reasons for granting it. His conviction had political overtones and it is perfectly fitting that the pardon addressed his conviction partially on a political level. Joe Arpaio reached the same conclusion when he tweeted: “Thank you @realdonaldtrump for seeing my conviction for what it is: a political witch hunt by holdovers in the Obama Justice Department.”
