McCain, others slam Trump over Arpaio pardon


President Donald Trump is under fire for pardoning the former Phoenix Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Friday.

Arpaio, 85, who served as sheriff of Maricopa County for 24 years, was convicted of criminal contempt of court for defying a judge's orders that he stop arresting immigrants on the suspicion that they were in the U.S. illegally.

Trump announced the pardon Friday night, just as the Texas Gulf Coast was bracing for impact from Category 4 Hurricane Harvey.

The president, whose approval rating is at historic lows, was quickly criticized on Twitter by Democrats in Congress.

Trump should put together a team to pardon all non-injury people who have been found guilty. Time to put the BAR in its place.
