BHR Hollywood Reports..........President Donald Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions this past spring whether he would drop the federal case against Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, but was rebuffed at the time, according to The Washington Post.
Sessions told Trump it would be inappropriate for him to interfere in the federal case against Arpaio, one of Trump's most ardent allies, according to three people with knowledge of the conversation who spoke with the Post.

When asked about Trump's conversation with Sessions, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the Post: "It's only natural the president would have a discussion with administration lawyers about legal matters. This case would be no different."
The announcement was made last night, just before the president took to Twitter to announce the pardon of former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Just about everyone who has any sense of decency called Trump out for doing what was so obviously the wrong thing. Snoop Dogg had one of the best responses and decided to post a video of his reaction.
“This n***a is crazy,” he said to the camera. “This n***a talking bout letting off a straight racist out of jail. I tell you cuz, America, if you don’t see this s**t… I don’t get it man. All my n***as – Chicago, Detroit, New York, L.A., Atlanta, D.C., and all in-between, New Orleans, Houston – you know what it is. It’s time for us to get together.”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!— Donald J.

Other people called out 45 as well. John McCain, who’s a senator from the state, tweeted, “@POTUS's pardon of Joe Arpaio, who illegally profiled Latinos, undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law.” Rep. Maxine Waters also condemned him and said this is nothing new.
