Breaking! Sheriff David Clarke Backs Out of Homeland Security Job

There’s more to this story than we’re being told now. The truth will come out eventually.

Sheriff Clarke could have been a big help in draining the swamp. Some RINO in his inner circle probably advised President Trump that Clarke was too controversial to serve in Homeland Security. Alternatively, Clarke may have skeletons in his closet that we don’t know about.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, an African-American who became a staunch critic of the Black Lives Matter movement and a supporter of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, has withdrawn his acceptance for a job as assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. newspapers reported on Saturday.

Clarke notified Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on Friday of his decision, Craig Peterson, an adviser to Clarke, said in a statement, according to the Washington Post and other newspapers.

“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,” the newspapers quoted Peterson as saying.

Neither the agency nor Clarke’s office immediately responded to requests for comment.

Clarke’s decision comes a month after he told radio station WISN in Milwaukee that he would leave his post as sheriff in June to join the Department of Homeland Security.

At the time, a spokeswoman for the agency said no announcement on Clarke had been made.

President Trump and Clarke met in Wisconsin on Tuesday and discussed other roles in which Clarke could help advance Trump’s agenda, the Washington Post reported, citing Peterson.

The Department of Homeland Security – created after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and the Pentagon – includes agencies that handle customs, border protection and immigration, the Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration and the Secret Service.

Clarke has come under fire for comments he has made about the Black Lives Matter movement, which grew out of protests over a number of police killings of unarmed black men in various parts of the United States.

Clarke has labeled members of the movement “subhuman creeps” and called for its eradication.

Clarke spoke in support of Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last July.

Critics have faulted Clarke for his management of a Milwaukee County jail where a mentally ill man died in 2016 of dehydration. An inquest jury recommended that seven employees of the jail be criminally charged.

Democratic Senator Kamala Harris of California called Clarke’s appointment “a disgrace.”

Kamala Harris, an obnoxious black radical, is being widely touted as the Democrat party’s presidential nominee in 2020. To her, everything reasonable relating to law enforcement is a disgrace. Her opinions are less than worthless.

  1. Sheriff Joe for the top job in Immigration, or should I say stopping invasion.

    “Critics have faulted Clarke for his management of a Milwaukee County jail where a mentally ill man died in 2016 of dehydration.”
    Who says the man was mentally ill? If he was legally mentally ill, who not also charge the judge who sent him to prison instead of a mental hospital?
    A jail is not a hospital. Was the man denied water – or did he refuse to drink?
    if he refused to drink water offered to him – bad luck I say. Anyone has the right to choose to not eat or not drink.

  2. Shocker!

    And I’m sick of all these people changing their dang minds. What’s up with that? Clarke is not the first but about the 3rd-4th-5th person to do so.

    Who scares them off? Hmm?

    With that said, these DO sound like BORING things over which to be the “boss”: “…customs, border protection and immigration, the Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration and the Secret Service.”

    Evidently Clarke agreed they would be too boring, since he “…believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a MORE AGRRESSIVE role…”

    OK, so, like what? What role would be more alpha for Clarke? Head of the CIA? Head of the FBI? Head of NSA? 😀 Let Clarke control all the Deep State SPOOKS!

    “…Trump and Clarke met in Wisconsin on Tuesday and discussed other roles…”

    ???

      • Yes, the timing is suspect. Meets with Trump on Tuesday. Clarke rejects the job on Friday.

        Unless Clarke had already made up his mind prior to Tuesday, called Trump to tell him, & then they met after that.

  3. Clarke is too outspoken for this job. Don’t think he could stand being so confined. Best he goes on Fox and elsewhere to say whatever he wants.

    • So he’d be perfect, then, for Press Secretary. 😉

      Trump’s Admin needs more outspokenness since he’s “not allowed” to be so anymore.

    • I remember that. They do that to everybody, (try to) dig up dirt to “out them” as a bad choice.

      They tried that on Trump repeatedly during the campaign. But I guess Clarke needs Congress approval. Such a chore all this is, like slushing through quicksand.
