Marcicopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been a thorn in Barack Obama’s side ever since he took office as he is an outspoken advocate for securing our borders. Most recently, he has been defying Obama by becoming a proud supporter of Donald Trump and campaigning for the GOP presidential nominee on a regular basis.
Now, Obama is trying to silence Arpaio once again as a federal judge is trying to have Arpaio charged with criminal contempt. KPNX reported that Judge G. Murray Snow wants Arpaio charged with criminal contempt over his failure to implement some anti-profiling measures the judge ordered in May of 2013.
“Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Deputy Sheridan have a history of obfuscation and subversion of this Court’s orders that is as old as this case and did not stop after they themselves became the subjects of civil contempt,” the judge wrote, according to Conservative Tribune.
The issue will now move up to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Phoenix, where the ultimate decision on whether or not to charge Arpaio will be made.
As Obama knows, this issue could not come at a worse time for Arpaio, as he is facing a re-election bid on August 30 in an election he only won by three points in 2012. Being charged with contempt could end his career forever, which is exactly what Obama and his minions want. Making matters even worse, Arpaio’s fate now rests with Obama’s Department of Justice.
“There will be several layers of approval,” explained criminal defense attorney and former federal prosecutor Kurt Altman. “Six months prior to an election, DOJ’s loose policy is they’re not going to bring charges against a politician.”
