Why Arpaio’s Pardon Could Trigger Constitutional Crisis


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Trump has pardoned Joe Arpaio. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, simplify. Tell us exactly what you assume in the comment section listed below. Indicator request below:

" Washington (CNN) Head of state Donald Trump defended his choice to pardon former Arizona Constable Joe Arpaio as Storm Harvey hammered the Texas shore, insisting during a news conference on Monday the timing was planned to draw interest.

" I thought the scores would certainly be much above they would be generally," he claimed of his decision to go forward with the statement as the country's focus was diverted to the enormous tornado.

The pardon has drawn objection from civil rights groups or even some Republicans, who have regreted the relocation saving the debatable Arizona lawman from a prison term.
But Trump was unrepentant Monday, urging Arpaio's hardline strategies were justified.

" He's done a terrific job for the people of Arizona. He's extremely solid on boundaries, really solid on unlawful immigration," Trump claimed at a mid-day news conference with his Finnish equivalent. "He is loved in Arizona. I believed he was dealt with unbelievably unjustly."
Arpaio was founded guilty of criminal contempt last month for ignoring a court order in a racial profiling situation. He's been charged for several years of breaking fundamental civils rights in his prisons, yet Trump demanded Monday he was no even worse compared to Americans who had actually been provided clemency by previous presidents."

    Just in case, Arpaio is pardoned that doesn’t mean he’s not a criminal.

    • Posted by Banana Republic USA, at Reply

      Halman: No, it’s not a political case. It’s about violating the Constitutional Rights of US citizens. It’s about ignoring a (Republican) Judge’s direct order regarding stopping that practice. It’s about committing a crime.

      Nothing to do with politics.

      Age doesn’t matter when crimes are committed and no remorse is shown.

    trump pardoning a criminal held in criminal contempt of the courts, well this may be the quickest way to impeach him, because you cant do that, a federal court found him guilty you cant just pardon him. but i bet he’ll be the new chief strategist in a week or 2

    • Posted by Karen Skinner, at Reply

      Not in the way he did it.

    • Posted by Done Lostme, at Reply

      No it does not, the conviction was for Criminal Contempt of Court so the crime was ignoring the Order of the Court, not grand civil rights issue you wish it to be. If it were as you claim the Judicial Activist Judge and her ilk would have brought Federal Civil Rights violations charges which carry much stiffer penalty but would have put the original ruling to the test outside her jurisdiction as it probably would have gone to the Supreme Court and then we are probably looking a Jury Trial as well!

      once again doing this trump ignores the constitutional rule of law. the law that is a federal court found Arpaio guilty of criminal contempt, and trump pardoned him regardless of that and even though he said he be the “law and order president” multiple times he ignores the constitutional rule of law and trump pardoned him anyway. trump is suppose to uphold the constitution and he broke it. he’s broken it before and continues to break it with the Emoluments Clause but this is arguably worse. he broke the constitution it is an impeachable offence.

    • Posted by Done Lostme, at Reply

      So we are moving the bar now? What Trump did was framed right in the Constitution even the NY Times admitted that, and now you are running out charges based on the Emoluments Clause which the Washington Post called unproven and speak as if they are Fact. So please provide some evidence for the charges you bring, have you heard of the burden of proof? What in the constitution did he ignore?

    • Posted by rouge1ful, at Reply

      i literally listed all of the reasons why its an impeachable offense.

    Locks up all lantios thinking they are illegals without any evidence.
    -> Gets convicted of a federal crime and gets his racsim exposed.

    This is trumps kind of guy. They are friends now.

      +9753flyer I don’t consider anchor babies citizens. I guarantee you almost 100% of Mexicans living in Arizona/Texas/Cali etc are illegals or children/grandchildren of illegals. The 14th Amendment was designed for ex-slaves, not the third world to come here and drop anchors for the Democrats to have a permanent voting block going into the future.

    Pretty soon the UN’s going to start issuing sanctions against the US for all of Trump’s human rights violations

      UN issued an early warning that US is headed toward a civil war.
      finland’s largest pension fund dumped its us stock holdings, bc US doesn’t have a president right now, and running on Auto-Pilot.
      America is crumbling without sanctions

    Trumptards giving their king a pass for disregarding the law and constitution “because librulz”.

    • Posted by randomguy5990, at Reply

      manhunt48 I didn’t say that was illegal, it just proves that “Law and order” doesn’t really matter to Republicans. You are a trump supporter, I can tell because you consider criticism of Trump to be “blind hatred”. You people always find a way to make Trump the victim.

      My father thinks the worst thing about politics are politicians. Thus, he figures, if you want to be a politician, this should automatically disqualify you from doing the job…

    • Posted by Modesty Blaise, at Reply

      saveusmilkboy I agree. To quote the amazing Billy Connolly. “The desire to be a politician should bar you for life from ever being one.”

    The wall to keep out Mexicans, the Muslim ban, the transgender ban, suppressing black voters, and pardoning a controversial racist cop. This is not the America that I was raised to believe in. Regardless of your political views, there comes a time when you must ask yourselves, “Where do I draw the line?”

  10. Posted by Ken Chang, at Reply

    First they will come for Mexican, then they will come for Muslim, than they come for transgender.
    I wonder who the American President is coming back next….
    I guess the only one that is safe is Russians.

      Arpaio didn’t just go after illegals which is why he was convicted but your racist President supports him and called him a patriot

    In the UK The head of State is not above the rule of law and cannot pardon her or himself or people who ignore or does not respect the order of the law made by parliament. We sorted it out in 1215.
    America, do you want to come back to the United Kingdom?

    next term we must make amendments to the constitution that disallow this kind of tyranny.

    • Posted by Stu Bur, at Reply

      It is already disallowed within the main body of the Constitution. Presidents can not pardon federal contempt of court.

  13. Posted by Mark P, at Reply

    I thought republicans were all about personal responsibility. Wouldn’t pardoning a guilty man go against that?

    • Posted by Sheree CuteNLoc'd, at Reply

      Mark P but he’s not a true republican, he was a democrat for so long

  14. Posted by Stu Bur, at Reply

    According to Constitutional law, Presidential pardons are not supposed to be applicable to contempt of court cases. They can apply to just about every other federal crime but not contempt because that is a matter entirely in the hands of the courts. This was written in as an intentional check on Presidential power so that Congress can investigate the executive branch with the power to compel testimony.

    • Posted by Johnf275, at Reply

      The pardon power extends only to federal crimes. Otherwise, presidents are free to use it as they see fit. As the Supreme Court put it in an 1866 decision involving a former Confederate senator, Ex Parte Garland, the power “is unlimited.”

      “It extends,” the court said, “to every offense known to the law.”

    • Posted by honeychurchgipsy6, at Reply

      U. Jekyll – you just won today’s top prize for ‘what aboutery’ by bringing up totally unrelated historical issues. There is a difference between how human rights were envisaged two hundred years ago, and how they are seen now. Even in the last few years the western world has moved on with, for example, gay rights. Please find me a government which has significantly better human rights (and these must include all humans not just white men) than the British Empire – you might surprise me of course, but I doubt you’ll find much difference.

    Trump is not in favor of law and order, he’s only in favor of order, while completely ignoring the law part, classic authoritarian.

    I disagree. Impeach Trump now, not later.

    Arpaio was getting away with having a concentration camp. Modern day racist and Nazis, probably why Trump likes him.

    • Posted by TheJabberwocky28, at Reply

      A concentration camp? Got anything to back this up?

    • Posted by Elfin4, at Reply

      The Jabber….
      Yeah it was on a News broadcast on line showing Senator McCaine talking about his wife who had visited the camp set up for holding those who were arrested following Arpaio’s arrests of those who were racially profiled and picked up. Arpaio had apparently tried to stop her visiting and filming the camp and intervened in her meeting. Search for the interview on line…
