Sheriff Clarke turns down Department of Homeland Security gig

Written by  Ruth Brown

Milwaukee County Sheriff and prominent President Trump supporter David Clarke Jr. has turned down a senior role in the Department of Homeland Security — but says he’ll support the president in a more “aggressive” role, according to a new report.

Clarke — a controversial tough-on-crime lawman whose appointment was met with outcry from the left — notified Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly Friday that he won’t take the gig as as assistant secretary, the Washington Post reports. 

“Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role,” Clarke’s adviser Craig Peterson told the paper.

DHS never actually acknowledged the appointment, but the paper says Clarke was supposed to start the new position at the end of the month — until unspecified “delays” got in the way.

Senate Democrats penned a letter to Kelly in May imploring him to can Clarke over his “troubling record,” which they said includes “multiple inmate deaths” under his watch, his claims that Black Lives Matter activists are in cahoots with ISIS, and accusations that he plagiarized parts of his master’s thesis.

It is not clear how Clarke will continue to serve Trump now, but the pair met Tuesday to discuss other roles, the Washington Post reports.

The Senate Democrats have no room to talk. Especially after what happened. They are just using people to take the spot light off their dirty deeds NEVER FORGET THEY ARE MOST OF THE SWAMP. IT'S TIME TO CLEAN THIS MESS.

The Dems are worried about inmate deaths? They weren't worried when a few of Obama's criminal illegals, who were supposed to be deported, killed innocent civilians!!!!!!!!!!!!....Dems are the scum of the earth.. I hope Sheriff Clarke runs for the senate,...

Don't forget, all the democrat fake concern about deaths has been proven as dishonest political jargon by the millions of unborn children that they support being murdered in the womb. How can you claim that you care about unjust deaths when you encourage more deaths than any war we have ever fought in and the body count rises every minute of every day?

Dems hate this guy because he tells it like it is in the black community. God forbid someone would speak the unmentionable truth about Black Society.

The Democrats will not only continue attacking President Trump, but all Republicans, and all God fearing Patriots. They are our enemy, and they are lead by Lucifer himself. They can not change. They have sold out to the King of Sin. They lie like him, and they cry like him. They are complainers, accusers, and abusers. There is no good in them. They have been deceived by Satan and are blind to the truth. Flee from their evil Party and serve God and Country. Freedom comes from God.....not Satan!

The democrat's worry about plagiarism...?? When they lie their butts off every day...??? Oh the stink of hypocrisy rises to high heaven from the democrat party!

i can understand why he withdrew-he can probably better serve the president in another capacity-a high profile one like this one would put a perpetual target on his and his boss's back

I am from Sheriffs Clark's area. The so called inmate deaths were not bacause of him. He is in charge of the jail but not in charge of health issues. Those problems are run by the Couty EX. chris Abele who hates Clark. No plagerisim , fake news. He noted all the needed quotes in the back of the book. He did not put question marks around them. There are 2 different ways of notating quotes. The City of Milw. is a cesspool of crime run by Socialists and Democrats for over 100 years. Whay could go wrong with that.

What are you? Clark's servant? Clark is not only a cheater, he is also the most arrogant negro I have ever seen in my entire life and, mind you, I have work with quite a few black people in my 68 years who are pretty decent at what they do! I do not believe he turned down the job; I know Gen Kelley and he knows better than hire someone like Clark, whether he is a Republican or not!

Typical Demturd comment. No proof, just accusations. Alinsky training showing through.

Sissies like you cannot stand up to a real man no matter what his color.
