Mere days after liberals in the media chastised Donald Trump for acting like a ‘dictator’ for allegedly wanting to put his ‘political opponent’ in jail, the Obama administration is doing just that, preparing to file criminal charges against Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The outspoken and unique sheriff has long been a thorn in the side of President Obama, who actively seeks a country without borders.
Now the DOJ is coming for him, just as he is seeking his seventh term in office. …
Via the Washington Examiner:
The Department of Justice will charge Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio with criminal contempt after continuing his immigration patrols.
Though Arpaio, who bills himself as “America’s toughest sheriff,” has not been officially charged, District Judge Susan Bolton asked the federal government to write an order to show cause by Wednesday for her to sign.
The order will be the charging document showing Arpaio violated a federal court’s orders in a racial-profiling case.
The charge stems from a December 2011 federal court order that said Arpaio could not continue his immigration patrols due to charges of racial profiling by Latinos.
Sean Davis, a co-founder of the Federalist points out the hypocrisy of Democrats who, for the the past 48 hours, have decried Trump for acting like a ‘dictator’ by saying Hillary Clinton belongs in jail.
At Sunday’s debate, Clinton said “It’s awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump isn’t in charge of law in this country.”
Trump responded, “Because you’d be in jail.”
Davis also reminds us that Arpaio is a political opponent appearing on the ballot in November.
Arpaio could face six months in prison and be forced from office should the charges be deemed a felony.
Imagine that, the illegal immigrants Arpaio tries to combat from infiltrating our country roam free under Obama, but Sheriff Joe himself might be off to jail.
