SEAN HANNITY (HOST): At the end of the day you enforce laws that are on the books, did you not? And were you not ordered not to enforce the law of the land?
JOE ARPAIO: No I was enforcing the law. This goes back to the former president and Eric Holder. Sixty days after they took office they launched this investigation and here it is. When I was running for office, contempt of court, misdemeanor and they did it politically so after this is over, Sean, at the appropriate time, I'm going to go public and talk about the abuse of the political and justice sytem. People have to know the true story. If they can go after me, they can go after anyone in this country so I will go public and try to let the people know.
