A Guide to Joe Arpaio, the Longtime Sheriff Who Escaped Strife

He would be re-elected five times.PhotoSheriff Arpaio speaking with members of what is believed to be the first chain gang of female inmates in 1996.Credit Jeff Topping/ReutersAn American lightning rodDuring Mr. Arpaio’s tenure, inmates were sometimes forced to stay in outdoor tents under the hot sun, wear pink underwear or work on chain gangs. (The sheriff is widely believed to have started the nation’s first female chain gang in 1996.) His deputies have been accused of racist abuse, needless intimidation and fatal mistreatment of prisoners.Mr. Arpaio seemed to revel in the spotlight as his tactics drew greater attention, and he often accused opponents of attacking him for political gain.He was a strident critic of President Barack Obama and a leading proponent of the theory that Mr. Obama was not born in the United States. In 2012, he sent a posse to Hawaii to check on the president’s birth certificate.The sheriff was an early supporter of Mr. Trump, giving his endorsement to the candidate in January 2016.PhotoSheriff Arpaio on a monitor at a 2012 news conference that raised questions about President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate.Credit Joshua Lott/ReutersWrong side of the law?Mr. Arpaio has been embroiled in legal troubles for at least a decade. Some highlights:In 2007, two owners of The Phoenix New Times, a consistently fierce critic of the sheriff, were arrested in their homes after the newspaper reported on a county subpoena seeking readers’ internet browsing records […]

Trump’s Threats on Health Law Hide an Upside: Gains Made by Some Insurers

“Outside of the noise,” the surviving companies “are seeing a path forward in this marketplace,” said Deep Banerjee, an analyst with Standard & Poor’s who has examined the financial results of more than two dozen Blue Cross insurers.“It is still a new market,” he added, “and everyone is adjusting to it.”The healthier business outlook has been achieved at a big cost to consumers. To stanch their losses, many companies raised their prices substantially for this year while narrowing their networks of providers to hold down costs. In Phoenix, for example, a typical plan’s monthly premiums more than doubled. Although people with incomes low enough to qualify for federal subsidies were shielded from the brunt of the steep increases, the higher prices prompted Republicans to blame the law for plans that were out of many people’s reach.In some cases, companies will seek even higher rates for 2018; the lone insurer left in Iowa is asking for a nearly 60 percent increase, on average.Insurers have remained largely silent during the heated debate over the law’s future, hoping not to antagonize the Trump administration as it decides whether to continue paying the subsidies. The companies, which were vilified by proponents of the Affordable Care Act before it was enacted, are concerned that Mr. […]

Why Trump’s Pardon of Arpaio Follows Law, Yet Challenges It

“Arpaio didn’t just violate a law passed by Congress,” Professor Feldman wrote on Bloomberg View. “His actions defied the Constitution itself, the bedrock of the entire system of government.” By saying Mr. Arpaio’s offense was forgivable, Professor Feldman added, Mr. Trump threatens “the very structure on which his right to pardon is based.”It was the first act of outright defiance against the judiciary by a president who has not been shy about criticizing federal judges who ruled against his businesses and policies. But while the move may have been unusual, there is nothing in the text of the Constitution’s pardons clause to suggest that he exceeded his authority.The president, the clause says, “shall have power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in cases of impeachment.”The pardon power extends only to federal crimes. Otherwise, presidents are free to use it as they see fit. As the Supreme Court put it in an 1866 decision involving a former Confederate senator, Ex Parte Garland, the power “is unlimited.”“It extends,” the court said, “to every offense known to the law.”In a tweet last month, Mr. Trump indicated that he had studied the matter in the context of the investigation of ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. “All agree the U.S. […]

Mediator: Trump Takes Aim at the Press, With a Flamethrower

(In a passionate appeal on Twitter on Wednesday, Mr. VandeHei posted the following message: “To family/friends who support Trump: What he said last night was despicable, extremely deceptive, dangerous.”)The president’s remarks on Tuesday were diciest for the news organizations that he identified by name.“When you see 15,000 people turn on your colleagues behind a rope, yeah, you worry about it,” George Stephanopoulos, the chief anchor for ABC News, told me on Wednesday. Mr. Trump insulted Mr. Stephanopoulos personally in Phoenix while singling out his news organization.As usual, CNN got the worst of it, facing chants that included “CNN Sucks,” although ABC and CNN both reported that none of their personnel had been threatened physically.I have to admit that I had started to wonder in the past few weeks what all the presidential inveighing against the news media was actually amounting to. For all of Mr […]

Different Day, Different Audience, and a Completely Different Trump

But ever since Mr. Trump won his first round of primaries and his path toward the Republican presidential nomination became likelier, his family members and some supporters have urged him — not with a lot of success — to professionalize his performances, and to try to avoid the dangers of the kind of spontaneous remarks he made in Arizona.There were obvious differences between the venue and audience for the Phoenix speech and those here on Wednesday. The first was a campaign-style rally for his most boisterous supporters, against a thumping soundtrack of the Rolling Stones; the second was an official presidential event for an audience of veterans, complete with a bill-signing ceremony.There were many reasons to believe that the president’s angry performance in Phoenix was the real Donald J. Trump. It was consistent with the way he has reacted to all sorts of setbacks since he took office, including the Senate’s failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act and the multiple investigations of his links to Russia.His advisers had actually anticipated the possibility that he would go off-script after The New York Times reported earlier Tuesday on his toxic relationship with Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader. The article was referred to frequently on the cable television shows that the president likes to watch.While reporters declared his rally one of his most caustic in the past two years, some White House aides said privately on Wednesday that they found some comfort in the fact that it could have been worse.Many presidents, of course, have complained bitterly behind closed doors about their treatment at the hands of the news media or their political opponents. Robert Dallek, a historian, said Franklin D. Roosevelt lashed out at the news media with his aides, while John F. Kennedy canceled a White House subscription to The New York Herald Tribune after a string of negative coverage.“There was a difference between how they performed in public and private,” Mr […]
