Please, please, please, any voters from the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin who happen to be reading this, DO NOT send treasonous asshole Paul Rino back to Washington next year. He is embarrassing you, the Republican Party, and he is clearly on the Soros payroll. He is a traitor!
Rino was silent when Barack Hussein pardoned 1,700 criminals, some of which were and are very dangerous felons. One was Wendell Callahan (H/T Roy Chapa), a crack dealer with a felony record, who, upon release, stabbed a mom and her two kids to death. Nary a peep from scumbag traitor Paul Rino.
House Speaker Paul Ryan on Saturday attacked President Donald Trump for pardoning former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, joining several other Republicans to criticize the controversial decision.
“The speaker does not agree with the decision,” Doug Andres, a spokesman for the Wisconsin representative, told The Wall Street Journal. “Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States.
“We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon.”
The White House did not immediately respond to Ryan’s remarks, but Arpaio’s attorney, Jack Wilenchik, said that Ryan “is wrong here.”
“This is why when politics tries to mix with the courts, it’s very tough,” he told Ana Cabrera on CNN. “The president did the right thing, because there should have been a jury in this case from day one.”I would have rather seen it go to jury in the first place, but now we’re dealing with a wrongful verdict.”
A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky told the Journal that Trump’s pardon was a “White House question.”
President Trump late Friday pardoned Arpaio, 85, of federal contempt of court charges for refusing to stop his crackdown on illegal immigrants.
Trump tweeted later that Arpaio, the tough-talking former Maricopa County sheriff, had “kept Arizona safe.”
I am pleased to inform you that I have just granted a full Pardon to 85 year old American patriot Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He kept Arizona safe!
