Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was formerly California’s attorney general and presumably knows a thing or two about the law, doesn’t think Joe Arpaio should get a pardon because he’s … wait for it … a criminal:
Joe Arpaio was convicted because he committed a crime. He should not be pardoned. https://t.co/YGvQkK6Kae

DERP! Um, don’t all criminals get pardons?
Or maybe she missed this day in law school?
Not saying Arpaio should be pardoned, but…she does know you don't pardon people who weren't convicted, right? https://t.co/GkmW6oaRIO

Who wants to tell her:
Under this reasoning, no one should ever be pardoned. https://t.co/YvKESCdOFR
