In a display of flagrant cronyism, Trump has pardoned Arpaio, who was found guilty of criminal contempt and unconstitutional behavior, before he was even sentenced.
Arizona Republican Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake have spoken out against this travesty of justice. Other Republicans have criticized Trump’s move, including Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (D-FL-27). McCain said, “[Trump] undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.”
