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

(I will not be revealing any conversations with the judge about the substance of the case because duh). (2/15)

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)

Odds that has read any court documents about the original trial? 0% seems too high.

Did Sheriff Arpaio ever consult with corporate jailers, who placed bids on detention contracts, outside delegated parameters of his office?

So you're saying he got a pardon after deleting emails? 🤔

Did Sheriff Arpaio ever lobby or take lobby help from representatives of those private jailer corps? Any Blackwater contracts?

This illustrates how racist Arpaio is and how trump supports white supremacy. GOP continues to support. What does that say about them?
