Three Reasons Arpaio Pardon requires Censure
I SUPPORT CENSURE AGAINST TRUMP FOR TREASONOUS ACTIONS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
With regards to the Arpaio pardon, I have mostly heard the two obvious reasons in the news:
1. It was a nod to Nazis and a bold endorsement for racial discrimination.
2. It was a flagrant, disdainful rebuff of the rule of law. Arpaio wasn’t a common criminal. He defied federal judges to break the fourth amendment to carry out his racial profiling.
However, I have heard much less about the third reason. The Mueller probe into Trump’s Russian connections is the case on point. Mueller is in the process of finding lackeys who will flip and turn over documents. In order to do this, he has to apply pressure based on federal laws that the lackeys have broken, then offer them leniency.
3. If Trump can pardon anyone at any time for any federal crime or misdemeanor, no one loyal to Trump ever needs to flip. Obstruction of justice 101.
Arpaio’s pardon is, by far, the most destructive attack on democracy since the night of broken glass (Kristallnacht).
It seems to me that we have gone beyond the point where Trump has consolidated enough power to effectively take over the government. Erdogan in Turkey and Maduro in Venezuela have done what many thought impossible.
NOW IS THE TIME TO CENSURE TRUMP FOR TREASONOUS ACTIONS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
