As Arizona’s senator, John McCain has worked with former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for decades upon decades.
Yet after Arpaio was granted a pardon by President Donald Trump, McCain stabbed him in the back.
On Friday night, McCain voiced his disapproval at Trump’s pardon of the hardcore, legendary sheriff, who was charged with a “misdemeanor contempt-of-court charge” for defying a judge’s orders that he stop conducting immigration patrols.
Arapio called the entire ordeal a “witch-hunt” by the Obama administration and billionaire George Soros’ far-left activist groups — he was facing jail time at a scheduled October sentencing.
McCain sabotaged all trust Arpaio had in him, saying in a statement that “no one is above the law” and “sworn law officers should always seek to be beyond reproach in their commitment to fairly enforcing the laws they swore to uphold.”
Lastly, he also says Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.
