I was the judicial clerk for the judge in the original Apraio trial. I have some thoughts on the pardon. (1/15)

Judge Snow was appointed by George W. Bush. He quoted Scalia favorably. He had a Romney Institute blotter on his desk. (3/15)

Arpaio now calls him “liberal” – this is flatly false. He is ideologically conservative and deeply devoted to the rule of law. (4/15)

He took pains to ensure that the trial was procedurally fair – crediting unsupported statements by Arpaio deputies. (5/15)

Arpaio’s office had deleted thousands of requested emails (yes!), Snow issued only mild sanctions in response. (6/15)

When a minor issue came up that could have merited recusal, he held a hearing – Arpaio’s attorneys asked him not to recuse. (7/15)

Judge Snow’s order was upheld on appeal before trial by a Nixon appointee, who singled him out for praise in the opinion. (8/15)

Many of the deleted emails were recovered; they contained racist jokes about “Mexifornia,” “Mexican Yoga” and “Mexican Engineering.” (9/15)

Snow’s final 142-page order barely referenced the inflammatory stuff – order bars enforcing federal law and stopping bc of race. (10/15)

That order is the one that Arpaio flouted. (11/15)

Arpaio sent investigators after the judge’s wife and constantly insults him publicly. (12/15)

Arpaio kept a paper file in which he printed fan mail favoring racial profiling and attacking a different judge (13/15)

Judge Snow has never responded to these personal attacks – he is far too dignified to do so. (14/15)

So when you hear Arpaio and Trump on the judge, remember he is a classic Republican judge and a deeply honorable man. (15/15)

No. Now I have to tell him and I'm kind of terrified.

*Correction - Arpaio was convicted for violating the 2011 preliminary injunction, not the final order (I was gone by then and got it wrong).

You are correct - everything I wrote is publicly available. I would never break the confidence of a court.
