WASHINGTON, D.C. -- After being convicted of criminal misdemeanor contempt, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has come out swinging, arguing the judge was biased and asking why President Trump is abandoning him, considering Arpaio was an early campaign supporter whose conviction reflects the determination to enforce immigration laws the Trump Justice Department is now exhibiting.
"Where is President Trump on this case?" Arpaio asked Infowars.com in an exclusive interview. "This is a witch hunt against me that is being carried forward by Obama holdovers in Attorney General Sessions' Department of Justice."
"I'm being convicted for honestly trying to enforce the immigration laws that Trump swore during the campaign he would uphold if elected president," Arpaio insisted.
Arpaio was one of Trump's early supporters, endorsing Trump formally in a statement issued on Jan. 27, 2016.
"Donald Trump is a leader. He produces results and is ready to get tough in order to protect American jobs and families," Arpaio said in a statement released by Trump's campaign at that time. "I have fought on the front lines to prevent illegal immigration. I know Donald Trump will stand with me and countless Americans to secure our border."
Starting in January 2016, Arpaio began appearing with Trump at campaign rallies, endorsing Trump's promise to "build a wall" as a needed measure to enforce aggressively immigration laws already on the books.
