Yesterday, President Donald Trump pardoned former Sheriff Joe Arpaio for defying a federal court order.
The former sheriff says the pardon was humbling and he will continue to expose alleged wrongdoings in the judicial system.
Per Bizpac Review:
Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio vowed to expose the liberal abuses of the judicial system against law-abiding people who enforce federal immigration laws.
Arpaio made the statement just hours after being pardoned by President Trump, who cited his 55-year history of public service in making his decision.
“I love that president. He supports law enforcement,” Arpaio told Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.
Arpaio said he is humbled by the pardon and says he will be having a press conference next week:
“I’m very humbled. I’m going to have a news conference early next week to get to the bottom of this, to show the abuse of the judicial system in politics. I’m not going down without trying to defend myself.”
Arpaio added: “I think people will be shocked that the news media were trying to destroy me for all these years [simply for enforcing the law].”

Following Arpaio’s remarks, Hannity commended Trump’s pardon:
Hannity said he was relieved by the presidential pardon. “I’m very relieved for you, you’re 85 years old,” Hannity told Arpaio. “You have dedicated your entire life to public service. You came under fire for obeying the laws of the land.”
