As Arpaio Pushes To Erase Verdict, Groups Sue Over Pardon

The notorious former sheriff from Arizona, Joe Arpaio wants to have his guilty verdict thrown out and Trump’s Justice Department agrees. On today’s show we’ll speak with Ron Fein, legal director of the group Free Speech for People about why his group and others are challenging Trump’s pardon of Arpaio as unconstitutional. Then, Emmanuel Felton joins us to discuss his new investigative piece in the Nation Magazine about the re-segregation of American schools with a focus on one school district in Alabama. Finally, as Donald Trump fails to rack up any legislative wins during his 8 months in office, he is succeeding at one thing: re-defining the federal courts with his nominations of extreme right wing and pro-Republican judges. Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
